Why a serial number?
To simply find your way around
This is a unique identifier assigned incrementally or sequentially to an item in order to uniquely identify it.
Make your life easier
Finding a serial number is not always an easy task, but when you have it, everything is easier for you and for those involved in: your future purchases, your repairs, or your parts purchases.
Look in the right place
Whether related to your truck body, your liftgate or your chassis, here is what you need to know.
Every Maxon liftgate leaves the factory with a steel identification plate, often located near the hydraulic unit, which includes the serial number, model, and date of manufacturing. This is helpful in order to confirm what parts you need and the history of your gate.
The VIN is a 17-character alphanumeric code corresponding to the serial number of your vehicle. You can find it on your insurance certificate or vehicle registration. You can also find it in the lower corner of your windshield and inside the driver’s door.
TRANSIT truck body
The box number consists of 7 characters. The first two correspond to the last two digits of the year of production.
The next five refer to the number of units manufactured.
In any case, it can be found inside the door on the driver's side of your vehicle.
For Classik™, Arctik™ or X-Treme™ bodies, it is also found near the cabin, on the passenger side, engraved on the side rail at the bottom of the exterior wall (under the orange reflector).
For Frio™ boxes, this is also found near the cabin, on the passenger side, engraved on a plaque in front of the body.
