From the Facebook NAPARS page:
  • Ford's website has a VIN decoding resource -
    • one page per model year going back 20 years. I really like using manufacturer's own literature when I need a citation. Specifically, this will help you be sure which of the many pickup variations you're dealing with, Regular cab, Crew cab, SuperCab, SuperCrew , long bed, short bed, 2x4, 4x4, etc.
    VIN Guides
    • The VIN Guide data in the PDFs was current at the time the PDFs were developed. Please login to use the VIN Decoder for the most up-to-date information.

another subscription based (only $3.99 A MONTH!) resource for finding out information on Truck ViNS AND MORE From their FAQ page:
  • Why is it now a $3.99/month subscription?
    • The original 2010 app was $0.99 US. It cost between $500-$1000 per year to update the app and maintain a developer account. With about 2,000 downloads over 12 years, this was not sustainable. The original app only worked on North American heavy trucks. The new app will give a limited decode on any VIN, and now also has EDR information on busses and RVs
  • What VINs will this decode?
    • It will decode any CFR compliant VIN, but for now it is still focused on medium and heavy trucks for the purpose of crash reconstruction.
visit the site, a great resource for Truck VINS, etc
