Yes the window is pretty easy to remove. The VIN numbers are etched below the door panel so they are not seen. Its basically another VIN location identifier for a stolen vehicle that is not too common and makes the car itself less valuable to try and part out.

Yeah I was just sayin that to the above posts about window breaking. That if somebody wanted to steal your windshield, It could be removed with no damage, and then they have access to everything.

This, I read actually here on TW that it makes it less desirable for a thief to steal the truck. The to cost of having to replace the windows is quite expensive. Making it harder and more expensive to sell. Kind of a cool idea, not really sure how effective it is, but the idea is nice.

Wish they would have done it in Los Angeles area... Free service that normally costs ~$300 plus you get an insurance premium discount why the hell not!
