2001 Dodge Ram 1500 - VIN question

I would like to know if I could use a vin number to see if the truck has a back seat

if it is a quad cab or Club Cab then it does.

You have a VIN but have not seen the truck or pictures of it ? Can’t you call who ever has it and ask them ?


Dealerships often require you tell them the VIN before they’ll sell you parts, to avoid selling the customer a part that won’t fit that particular car’s configuration. So it seems like you could ask your questions at a dealership, maybe frame it as asking for a part regarding the back seat. If the vin for the truck in questions says it doesn’t have a back seat they’ll say so I presume.

Is there some reason you can’t ask whoever has possession of the truck to look to see if it has a back seat? Seems an easier way … lol …

Enter your VIN here.

And it’ll list what all came in your RAM.



I didn’t try the link Tester provided, but I have always had good luck with FCA RAM

Using the same VIN teh FCA Ram decoder actually showed all the optional and standard features on the truck.

Sounds like someone’s looking to buy something “sight unseen”, usually not a good idea.
