Default VIN

Can the vin in an 05 gmc be removed without removing the windshield?
My truck had an engine fire was totalled by insurance bought back and already fixed everything and thereís a guy parting a truck out with a clean vin which would be way easier. My truck is in great mechanical shape. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. The body is the downside as rockers are rotted out.

Very illegal thing to do. The VIN is in more than one place on the truck as well

Not a good reason whatsoever, you are looking at prison time.

Most states just require minimal documentation and a quick safety inspection to get back on the road. What kind of hurdles do you have to jump through in your state?

Growing up my brother totaled 3 vehicles and one of them twice. We were able to rebuild and put them back on the road with no issue. 2 of my current trucks are on a rebuilt title and other than resale they are treated like any other vehicle.

Ive known a couple people over the years who bought fresh cabs due to severe rust issues and "moved" the old vin tag over.....
......nothing ever happened b/c of it. Not saying it wouldnt, but it didnt.
