How do you initially get your VIN number. Is it produced once you place the order?

when you order a vehicle it starts the paper trail, usually within a week or two, the paperwork hits some office somewhere & they assign a number to it, that number is called a V.O.N. vehicle order number, i am not sure but i think this is when it changes from a stack of papers to the computer files.
then VON continues through the process & gets to some office, where they confirm all the data & apply through Chrysler for a permanent Identification number, this new number when received is called a V.I.N.Vehicle Identification Number

the VIN number as well as the VON number & the BUILD DATE are what is on the BAR CODE that is on the WINDOW STICKER that you see on every NEW Vehicle at the dealers sales lot

so if you had the proper code reader, you could walk up to a vehicle, activate it over the bar code & store it, & go home or to the office & you could decode it, if you were so inclined
the first ELEVEN identifiers (in no particular order in this post) tell you the country it was made in, the town, what it is like car or truck, GVWR, 2 or 4 wheel drive, the Series, 1500, 2500, etc., cab type, engine, check digit, model year.
the last 6 identifiers & this is just a guess, almost have to be color, special packages, wheels, where it was shipped to, etc.
Next is the VON number in the bar code, then the Build Date

I was able to get the VON from my dealer about a week after I ordered. Its possible I could have gotten it sooner but thay was the first time I spoke with him since ordering.

I found a site that would breakdown the VIN number and decode yours explaining everything. But JT is pretty much on the money other than the order.

Oh boy!
Mine has arrived in Hardisty, Alberta (roughly 3 hours outside of Edmonton).
It's only June 1 today yet insight shows the train arriving in Edmonton on June 4. Not sure what the wait is, unless they have to unload some vehicles for Calgary?

Honestly, that doesn't make sense though...they would probably have put a train car right in Calgary, if that was the case. I'm hoping!

Delivery to dealership is still June 8 (my wife's birthday). Nice birthday present (considering the truck is mine, not hers. Actually the truck is for both of us.)
