Hi, Im loking for VIN number on my Mazda b3000, I saw only small plate on windshield under Airbag sticker, but where factory put it on the frame? I think Ranger is 99,9% the same car, so it will be easy for forum members.
Besides dash board plate, VIN is on the drivers door jamb sticker.
On the frame it varies even in the same year, there is always 2 on the frame, sometimes 3.
Look at the top of the frame rail on both sides of engine bay.
Often there is one under the cab as well, can sometimes been seen with mirror, but lifting cab a bit helps.
And under the bed as well
The reason it is not in specific locations is for theft protection from chop shop type repairs.
Engine and body parts will usually have last 6 digits of VIN on them as well
