of Dodge vehicles were often placed on the radiator support, but as this area often gets covered with engine fluids, the tag would be hard to find. If you have an older model or just can’t seem to find the paint code on your car, you may need to use your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
Here’s where you can find the VIN for your Dodge:
  • On earlier Dodge truck models, you may need to check the rear frame above the suspension spring. Later models will have your VIN on the frame of your front left or right wheel arch.

  • You can also look to any official documentation such as your car’s owner’s manual, registration, or insurance to find the VIN.
