on the cj7 frame where exactly are the vin numbers located.
I have seen date codes stamped into the frames on the rear cross member (in front of gas tank), but not the VIN. That would be on the top of the wiper motor plate and on the tag just under the steering staft on the firewall.
1975 CJ-6 1983 CJ-8
1986 CJ-7 Laredo 1986 TJ-7 Trail Jeep
2003 Inca Gold TJ Rubicon
There is normally a plate or sticker in one of three locations (that I have seen). A sticker on the driver's side of the dash, a sticker on the inside of the rocker panel on the driver's side near the floor, and a plate on the driver's side of the firewall near the top. Most likely, if the Jeep has undergone any major body repairs, the VIN is gone. In my case, the letters have faded or worn off, and I can't read them anymore, but that's ok...I'm replacing the frame and tub anyway.
It's not so much a labor of love as it is shear determination.
Where is the sticker on the drivers dash? I need an exact location.
1983 Jeep CJ7 258 6 Cylinder with Weber Offroad Carb, HEI Ignition, Front and Rear Lock Right Lockers, Slick Rock Spring Hangers, 4" Suspension, Stainless Brake Lines and Quick Disconnects, TJ Flares, 33" BFG MT's, T5 speed (Soon To Be SM465 with Novak Adapter), Roll Cage, Smittybilt Double Tube Bumpers Front and Rear (They will be narrowed soon)

There should be a plate on the firewall below the wiring harness connection. There should be another plate riveted to the windshield frame with the wiper motor. The VIN tag/strip will be riveted on the top of this plate. If you have a dash pad, there is a "notch" in the pad for it to be seen from the outside. The VIN should be "stamped" on the passenger's side frame as described above.
