I don't believe you're going to find it on the motor or frame. You can find it in the corner of the dash and windshield on the drivers side.

On the driver side i have found it, but the italian historical registry want a photo of the VIN on the frame without this photo my truck does not enjoy certain privileges insurance...
In an italian forum about american cars i have found the VIN on the frame for the Ford Mustang it's under the left front fender and the owners tell us that every cars have a hidden VIN for police use, that's true? I prefer to write on a american forum for american cars

I hope i was clear in the explanation, my english is not perfect...

I guess maybe it is on the frame. See the link below for location on an Explorer. I've never seen a VIN on any of the 3 RBV's I've owned. My Mustang has the VIN on damn near every body panel.

http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...ad.php?t=62391

I just went out and looked at mine, and I don't see it anywhere. Maybe it's on the top of the frame?

Do you know if it is on the frame TRS (and where)? I think my Ranger has VIN stickers too, but I don't think the 89's did.

EDIT - My 96 doesn't have the VIN stickers on the fenders and hood. I think I'm thinking of my Dad's Explorer.

If you have no A/C Box you should be able to lean over and see it, might have to clean the frame.
