430N Updating UConnect Software (not Garmin maps)

Hi all! I am a new member to the forums, but a long time lurker. I need some assistance in figuring out the best way to go about doing this.
I have a 2017 JKU, I just upgraded from the 130 to the 430N. Easy plug and play, the seller supplied me with the 4 digit anti theft code to unlock the radio head. I was able to install the maps update from Garmin with ease. The snag I am hitting now is that, in order to update the UConnect, I need the VIN for the vehicle. I know it came from a 2015 Chrysler Town and Country. The seller has not been forthcoming with providing the VIN, I don’t know if they don’t have the vehicle anymore or if there’s some other issue, but that’s been a dead end.
Somewhere in my lurking I came across a thread where the DealerConnect system was explained, and according to that thread a serviceman from Chrysler can reassign my VIN to the radio I have now. My service guy at my dealership either doesn’t know how or isn’t willing to do this, so I need to know if anyone on here knows a way that I can obtain the software update from Chrysler without the VIN. Do dealerships typically charge to update the software for you? The vehicle is still under warranty, but I doubt they’d be willing to update that for me since it is not original to the vehicle. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if this is in the wrong part of the forum I apologize in advanced!
