Engine Oil Dipstick

Can someone with a 4.0L, measure the length of their dipstick? Wondering if the one I have installed is not the right length.
Thanks in advance.

Engine Oil Level Indicator Dipstick Fit Chrysler Pacifica Town & Country Dodge Nitro Grand Caravan 4.0L 04593604AA

I pulled mine out and it measured 27/12 inches from bottom to "O" ring on its yellow handle. Better yet the part number as shown on above Link is on it too!

Thank you. I measured mine from the bottom to the top of the O ring and it came to 25.5". The other day I went to check my oil and panicked because it was bone dry, but yet I didn't hear my lifters as if there was no oil in the engine.

Does your present dipstick have a part # on it? If so what is it and I will see if I can find out what it is for? As you can see Amazon has the correct one for $20. Not many ever (like myself) check their engine oil these days, just take it in to be changed. Good find.
