Click on Vehicle Tab and enter VIN...

My door jam sticker says 1/11, This page shows "Primary Feature Build Date" as 2/2/11....

Hope this helps.
That site says 6/10/2011, but my door jam sticker says 9/11??

I think this is more accurate. That says 9/29/11 on my window sticker. However it's not under MSRP, it's the last six numbers in the box to the right of 'final assembly point'

The site is European and they commonly use a different date format than we do.

This format is Day-Month-Year

Well that's helpful to know! Thanks!

So mine was built on 10/6/2011 and is still considered an '11 model. The first 2012 truck must have been right behind it.

I had been wondering about this also.

Door jamb: 12/12
Window sticker: 12/12/12 (Wednesday)
Site: 12/19/12 (Wednesday)

I'll go with 12/12/12 cause it's easy to remember.

Man, that's cool! Thanks RaptoRx7!

Mine was a 2/13/2013 - *Wednesday* build! (remember Arthur Haley's "Wheels"?)

Want some extra info? Get to the page of info on your truck and then click "There are more minor features..., click to expand this list." in the "minor features" box Whoa! 4 pages of what essentially amounts to a "line tag" for your truck.

Very cool!

Played around a little on the ETIS site and I have 1 question: What is a "Rescue Card"?

Rescue Cards are for Emergency Service Personnel, they show such things as were to cut body panels for extraction, how to disable the airbag system if they were not deployed during the accident, etc... Basically an overview of the vehicle to assist with the rescue...
