It is on the top of the rail and it does not match the vin # At least thats the way the numbers are on my 81 and 84 CJ-7's
The entire VIN is not on the frame, but the numbers that are on there should match the last 6 digits or so on your title. My Jeep was missing a VIN plate on the firewall, and the one above the wiper motor. I did a check with my local state police and found that my jeep was stolen in 1988 (which is why they are missing). So then, I checked the numbers on the frame and they match the last 6 digits of my title.
