just go to the jeep site, i don't remember exactly where i found it but poke around I'm sure its not too hidden, there is a place for jeep owners to email them and you have to fill in a bunch of information and write a short email bout what you want. free of charge takes a couple days to respond... got to go to work NOW though so ill respond more later if needed.

All you have to do is contact DCX Customer Service via Jeep's (or Dodge's, or Chrysler's ... they all go to the same place) website and submit the last either 7 or 8 digits of your VIN (it's been a while since I did it, but I think it is the last 8).


It took me about 3 days to get mine, and yeah, there was some info that was, shall we say, suspect. Of course, they really didn't want to know me when they realized the first one I asked about was a '92 Plymouth Sundance!


I was thinking that ERB was the code for the 3.3L FFV (E85-capable) engine. Without going out and lifting the hood on my wife's Caravan, I can't be 100% sure, but I think that's what it is. If I get real nice and motivated, I might go take a look.


Interesting indeed to see that they're reusing some of the old codes for new stuff ... wonder what the Charger/Magnum police package goes by. It sure would be neat if they were giving them the time-honored A38 option code, or even AHB (which replaced A38), for that matter.


BTW, I'll bet those power, heated, folding mirrors are nice this time of year, too. :roll:

That is good info to have. And as far as pricing goes, it's not out of line at all, at least for the build sheets. I sent off and got one from Studebaker Autoparts Sales Corporation a few years ago as a Christmas gift for a friend of mine (he has a '64 Studebaker GT Hawk), and I seem to recall it was about the same price.


If you're wondering why the price is that high, keep in mind that a lot of the older files are probably just that: FILES. They probably keep them in drawers, and they have to be copied or transcribed. It's time consuming and labor intensive in many cases.


Oh, WAIT WAIT WAIT!!! I just went to their website and it says, and I quote:


"No Jeep, AMC or Canadian-built cars available."


That sucks really, really bad.
