Actually no I don't. As a matter of fact, my car has a personalized plate (same as my board name at my other forum), and I leave it in the pics. In some instances I will, like say if I'm selling a vehicle locally.

If VINs were so private they wouldn't be on the dashboards of every vehicle in the world and perfectly viewable by anybody. I could go to a parking lot and get probably 1000 VINs. What can I do with them? Basicly nothing at all except run vehicle history reports on them which basicly tells you nothing you can do anything with.

For that matter, you can walk through a parking lot and read the VIN off of the plate under the lower driver's side corner of the windshield of almost any car there. I don't see the point of your post.
Okay, look. I'm not saying that someone is going to use your vin # and sell your Jeep out from under you so relax. All I am saying is that, we had an instance over at mr2oc.com, where someones car was spotted on ebay being sold for some unheard of price. Pics, specs, mods, everything was listed. They use it to scam for a down payment or something. Again, I'm not saying that they're going to steal your vin and sell your Jeep without you knowing. Some of us don't really have to worry. There are others here who have a lot done to their Jeeps, and it could happen to them. I know if I had a highly modified Jeep, I wouldn't want it to be listed on ebay with someone trying to pull a scam on someone else. Would you want your vin listed with all your mods, and even pics of your Jeep on Ebay? I wouldn't. I'm just trying to look out for other people and post the info, so chill.
