2012 Race Truck is on a distinguished road
Default Day of Week Build Date

Thanks to a link on this forum I ordered my build sheet. A lot of great info but I'm left trying to figure out how you guys are determining the day of the week your truck was built? My build sheet didn't have that and the sticker on my door jamb says "April 12" which I take to be April 2012. If it's 4/12/12 then my truck was built on a Thursday but I don't that that's how it works.

Thank you!

I believe the build date is at the bottom of the window sticker in small print.

The dealer must have kept it. I checked mine and the build date is above the bar code on the right side. MM/DD. Good luck!

does it really matter? the truck took several days to build and any day listed would be bogus anyhow the day somebody decided to put a sticker on in doesnt really mean anything..if your thinking it was built on friday versus monday and there would be different workmanship.. oh boy..it is what it is 12 hr shifts wed. could be be somebodies fri. happens everywhere and with everything..maybe i took this wrong but i laughed..hope they didnt hook the gas pedal up on somebodies supposed friday 2 minutes before the end of shift

The way the story goes
Monday vehicles are built when people have hangovers
Friday afternoon vehicles are built by clock watchers & people thinking other things then their job

True enough, the vehicle assembly only takes a couple hours, whether it is in the USA or Saltillo Mexico
The engine is built in Mexico & shipped to the assembly plant
The transmission & axles are built in the USA & transported to the assembly line
Parts are also made in Japan & Canada

So i guess you would have to know what day each part was made

Let me just say, i am glad my Ram was built on Wednesday, no factory defects with 81,000 miles on it, just a cracked exhaust manifold after the dealership worked on it

Way back in In 1998, the plant made 1,032 trucks per day in two shifts at the Warren Assembly Plant
The plant then had 21 miles of conveyors, 354 robots, and 397 computers

That was 14 years ago !! Surely they have sped that up

The Saltillo Mexico plant is even larger
