    The only VIN is on the cab, at the bottom left corner of the winshield in the dash.

    are you sure ? i was told by a CHP that there was one on the frame also and thats how they checked if it was stolen , cuz the thieves down here would swap 2wd and 4wd parts and so on .

    I believe there are VIN numbers on the frame. I was just reading on the net about a guy who did a hummer kit and when he cleaned and painted his suburban frame he took a close up of the VIN stamp. I have not looked for them on my truck though. I can find the web page tomorrow - I'll post it back here.

    Every GM truck that I've owned,had a VIN code on frame,just next to P/S pump.In fact every vehicle here in Finland that has VIN code stamped on plate,riveted to body,has also it stamped on frame/body.That way it's easier to check that vehicle really is what papers say.
