2018 JK Wranglers have J as the model year, and L for the Toledo plant where they’ve been built. Which is confusing, because when reading/asking for the last 8 of the VIN of a 2018 JK for reasons, it starts off with “JL.....” but its not a JL.

This 2018 JL that’s here for sales training’s ‘last eight of the VIN’ starts with JW.

Why the Toledo plant code is W now I do not know, but according to the interwebs they’re all still being built there.


Still, its confusing that a JK has JL in the VIN and a JL does not, it has JW. Until next year.
