How do I get my VIN?
When FCA assigns your VIN it shows up on your VON at the dealer. Just ask the dealer you ordered your truck from if you have been assigned a VIN and if you have they can reprint your VON with the VIN on it....... Lots of acronyms, in a nut shell ask your dealer ;)

Did you get your VIN yet? Watch you be one of the fortunate folks and find out that your truck already has a build sheet and you get delivery in Jan/Feb.

Good luck!

You should get a VON when you order. You should get a VIN when you get near D status

You waiting until your dealer calls to say your truck has arrived? lol

Lol looks that way doesn’t it? I’m not entirely sure my dealer even had an allocation when they took my order. Last time I checked I’m in BG status. Does that mean I definitely should have a VON? Attached what I was given when ordering.

Yeah when I tried locally an hour from you I wasn't getting much luck with allocations. I've seen some people have a VIN in BG, some not. BG your in the system but your dealer is waiting for an allocation. When you talked to your dealer last? Some said a new of allocations went out this month after there was a freeze in November

Gotcha. So I should have a VON though at least? I last takes to them maybe a week or two before those letters when out for a bunch of people.

Yeah your good with a VON. Did you order a build or taking over a dealer stock order? If it's dealer stock that gets built towards the end

I think the FCA customer care chat room may be able to give it you also. I asked them and they search and found out I didnt have it yet. Not sure. The dealer is best you just can’t call them everyday probably.

I see lots of reference to a VON. Excuse my ignorance but what exactly does that stand for and how do I know if I have been issued one. What is the significance of it? Thanks in advance for clearing this up.

A VON is a Vehicle Order Number. When your dealer puts the order into the system, and it’s accepted by the order system, it generates a VON on you Priced Order Confirmation (POC), which lists your order breakdown, that the dealer should supply to you. When the VIN is assigned, the POC will have this information on it too, the dealer simply needs to reprint it for you when that is available.

Exactly right.

Troy, for future reference Brad's post above of "your vin shows up on your von" is typical garbage posted by him, stay away for good information.

Dealer stock gets built at the end? Even if its an LE?

FCA customer service has been upfront saying Sold Order is prioritized over Dealer Stock... LE were originally supposed to be built first, and judging by the first week build numbers, looks like those are at least currently the majority of those being built (hope that keeps up), but can’t say for sure if a Dealer Stock LE gets built at the end of the LE run or after ALL other color Sold Orders.Haven’t seen anything firm from FCA on that.
