    Just for everyone's info, generally speaking, VIN #, first digit is the country of manufacture origin.

    1 = USA
    2 = Canada
    3 = Mexico
    J = Japan
    W = Germany

    After that it gets kind of muddy..

    Check out this

    Vehicle identification number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also found this

    Position 1
    The very first letter or number of the VIN tells you in what region of the world your vehicle was made. Match the letter or number below to the first number or letter of your VIN to find out in what region of the world your VIN was made.

    A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H are made in Africa
    J, K, L, M, N, P, and R are made Asia
    S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z are made in Europe
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5 are made in North America
    6 and 7 are made in Oceania
    8 and 9 are made in South America

    Not trying to hyjack this, just provide info

    $24,000. for a clone is not good. Hope the guy hasn't spent his money yet & hope it can be taken care of with the cops.

    My '05 is welded and bolted, I was just about to say that truck has to be stolen, there is no way someone can and would go threw that much work to make it look OEM.

    I'm thinking stolen and swapped main VINs. Hopefully this doesn't go any further south than it has already.

    he must have paid with cash or a healthy down payment.

    no bank in their right mind would lend 24k on an 03 work truck... and that's entirely too much work for that to be a "swap"... i think we can all agree on that...

    this is epic...

    on a side note, if you'd like a clear title for a true 05 SRT-10, i know a guy;)

    got the cash back

    As you all may have learned, the truck was a stolen truck. Someone must have purchased a 2003 ram 1500 ST from the insurance auction (because the Carfax I ran on the Vin # shows it was flipped and had to be towed) for $600 bucks, slapped that door sticker and console vin number, and sold it to the guy I bought it from. All the other IDs on the truck had been removed.

    the guy I bought it from was sick to his stomach, apologetic, and embarrassed. I felt bad for HIM.

    He paid me back the cash. I am now without a SRT-10. (and by the way, it stated it had 22k miles), (but who know now if the miles were correct or just identical to the junkyard Ram).

    CASE ClOSED
