    Thanks Jasmine, an update to my problem was they have ordered a new radio as per the Star engineer review of the data they sent in...and a more recent update is that I have traded the 2 door in for a 4 door so itís no longer my problem. However it is good to know that if needed you guys are here..ready and willing to help...very much appreciated.

    That article is from October, and I havenít seen sales stopped. The frame weld issue is old news, really.

    Thank you
    you calmed me
    In the coming days I am buying 3.6 JL used in the US
    And sends it across the sea
    And I do not have the strength to deal with repairs in our country
    Do you think I need to check out more?

    Photographs of the frame would reveal any issues.

    Looking at new Jeeps online, I'm wondering if there is a way to find the build date based on the VIN number. No way I'm driving 4 hours to look at a Jeep only to find that it is withing the time window of the "offline welding process" issue.

    "The first step for dealers is to lift the vehicle and check out the build date code on the frame. If that number is greater than or equal to 126 and less than or equal to 156, then the vehicle was built in the May 7, 2018 to Aug. 21, 2018 window, and its owner should be offered a loaner car as the Jeep gets inspected further."

    It is great that the article mentioned before in this thread mentioned how to detect the frame date. Just wondering how this could correlate to build date and be detectable without having to crawl under the Jeep.

    I found this FCA VIN decoder online and it doesn't have manufacture date as part of the VIN. I see the model year but not production date.
