The 5th digit in the V.I.N. could it be an 8?

    My wife hid the title to the Jimmy and she's gone right now. I need to know the VIN but the tag isn't as clear as it needs to be. The last digit is a little blurred. But, it's the 5th digit that confuses me. I went to ChucksChevyTruckPages to check what the VIN numbers meant, and he has the 5th digit listed as either a 3 (Cab and chassis) or a 4 (Pick-up). But I'm positive that the VIN on the JImmy is an 8. Maybe he just doesn't have the other numbers listed. What do you guys think?

    Forgot to mention it's a '79 Jimmy. Thanks.

    Yes. 8 is a Blazer/Jimmy. 6 is Suburbans, and I forget the rest :D
