Vehicle identification number
Once you've confirmed your Wrangler of choice, it's time to personalize it. From armor, to proper decals, to angry eye headlights, the possibilities are endless. Vehicle identification numbers can provide a large amount of information about your Jeep and are like a social security number for your vehicle. The check digit is position nine of the VIN. This number is the result of a lengthy math problem using the VIN's other numbers.
If you're looking to make sure the VIN you have or are looking at is legitimate, the check digit will tell you. Each position of the value has a numerical weight. As there should be.
J's value is 1, and the weight is seven. You would find the value and weight for the rest of the positions, plug them into the VIN calculation, and you should get your check digit as a result. TJs have the VIN on a plate on the drivers side dash, sticker on drivers side door frame near hinges, stamped into the frame, plate on floor between drivers side seat and door. If you ask a question, you get a real response from a real person looking into your application for whatever it is you are buying.
