Quick question on VIN - Rubicon

What do I need to check on the VIN to see if it is actually a Rubicon edition? Got a friend looking at a TJ and they say it is a Rubicon, but I want to verify.

Axial locker switch is a dead give way and it will look stock/factory not aftermarket. Do your research and VIN code assign certain letter to designate a Rubicon. I don't know or forgot the code but I believe it's the sixth digit on the VIN number that is "6".

Thanks, that decoder is what I was looking for!

I know about the switches and all those visible cues, but wanted to see if somebody was trying to pull one. I have not seen the Jeep in person yet and have limited photos at this time.
