Hey everyone I just picked up another toy for this winter which leaves me with 3 wranglers lol. Black 1993 4cyl daily driver, Red 2011 Rubicon, 1988 black 6cyl
Anyways I just pickup up my 1988 wrangler 6cyl but the vin from the dash by the windshield was missing and I found a tag on the firewall that only has 10 digits? Im trying to find the full 17 digit vin can anyone help? and on the title the vin number is " NY61518" I dont understand whats going on with this car? and I know the car was registered like that because the registration says the same thing??
That means that the jeep was stolen and had the Vin number stolen off it. The 10 digit number you have now is the new Vin the nysdmv assigned to it and will be the Vin to use for registration and insurance.
Or.....it was a total and marked salvage and was put back together with different parts.
The vin# you have was issued by the NY DMV. I have done some "composite" cars and after getting them inspected they issue a new VIN#
There is another vin # somewhere on the frame but can't recall where it would be on that vehicle..Try the NATB site, you might find the location of the vin# there. If you find it, run it thru carfax, you might get a history
You might find a tag up under the dash or stamped on the top of one of the frame rails over the rear wheels..

Aright thanks guys, Just wanted to make sure I wont have problems trying to register it. It was probably stolen because there are no signs of bodywork ever done to this jeep and all the speakers and radio wires are all ripped out so im sure it has do something with that. Thanks alot guys..... if anyone else knows any other locations of the vin number please let me know.
UNless the doors have been changed, you can find the VIN sticker on the driver's side door, just like any other car... I have a 1994 and I was replacing a bunch of parts in the full doors because the locaks and handles were screwed up and I didn't even notice the doors were from an 86 until I started getting parts that wouldn't fit! I found out the doors were 86 by the VIN sticker on the door. Now I know, the color difference is obvious (white Jeep, doors are slightly cream colored). Without knowing it looks normal!!
