Default We now have a VIN Decoder!

We're proud to announce a new feature which allows members to decode their VIN! Along with MSRP and invoice price, the Vin Decoder can be used to see engine and powertrain stats, options by body style, paint colors and codes, and detailed technical specs. Users can also easily share that information to Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter, or even click through to purchase a Carfax report for that particular car. This decoder works with any make/model 1981 to present.

The VIN decoder will also appear as a hyperlink anytime a member posts a VIN to enable more accurate info when referencing VINs in sales threads or general conversation. We think the VIN Decoder will be a fun and useful tool for members, so check it out!

http://www.f150forum.com/vindecoder.php


When you use it, an advertisement will pop up asking two random questions. Answer them. They're there to prevent bots and things like that from using it.

My truck is an XLT but my VIN decoder indicates that I have an XL. I wonder what's up with that.

Why would someone need to decode their vin number? What would you learn that you didn't already know about your truck?

Default What a joke!!!

Sorry, I'm going to be brutally honest. An absolute stranger could learn more about my truck by a simple walk around vs using this. The only info given was year, engine and (wait for it); I HAVE A TRUCK!!! All other fields were blank, zip, nada, ZERO. Not at all what I expect fr an F150 site. Forgive me; but it's ludicrous. I LOVE irony; this may have made my day.

PS: A REAL VIN decoder exists here:

Have a NICE day all!!!
