Typically, a Jeep's VIN number can be found on the driver's side of the dashboard near the windshield or on the firewall next to the brake booster. Some Jeep models also have the VIN number listed on the driver's side door jamb.
The VIN number is a unique code that every vehicle must have. This code identifies the make, model, manufacture date, location and other features of a vehicle. Governments use the VIN number for registration purposes and tracking vehicle sales between owners. The VIN number may also prove useful if a vehicle is stolen, as it can indicate to whom the vehicle in question belongs to.
