WHERE CAN I FIND THE BUILD DATE ON MY TRUCK?
Most build dates can be found on the information label on the inside of the driver door jam. This label will tell you anything from the VIN number to the recommended tire pressure.
WHAT IS A CORE CHARGE?
A core charge is an acronym for "Cash On Return". These are rebuildable parts that can usually be redeemed for a portion of their original purchase price. Most companies will reuse the case of a transmission, the core of a valve body or even an internal part of a torque converter that is either no longer available or much to expensive to buy new and can be reused on the newly manufactured part. These charges are refundable though once you send in your original part.
