Will the real VIN please stand up
I found a site where I could check to see if my newly acquired ZJ has had all it's recall work done, so I took the VIN off the title, entered the last 8 numbers, and it spit up my truck's info, but it said that no recall work (front rotors replace, shift detent fixed, fuel sensor replaced) had been done, which is contrary to what I was told. Upon further inspection, the VIN on the title is different from the VIN on the window sticker (original owner who saved all his paperwork), which was different from the VIN on the registration and bill of sale.
Now, the differences are small, like a 'Y' for a 'V' or an 'S' for a '5', but big enough that I obviously need to get this straightened out. The truck is about 45 minutes from here getting the engine swapped out, but you can guess who I'm going to call tomorrow morning and have read me the VIN off the truck itself. I'm not terribly concerned, and I know everything is legit, but I would say that having the right VIN is important, wouldn't you?
