Does anyone have the font/size of the front bumper markings for the Jeeps?

So far I found this.
Front and rear markings are identical and consist of four groups in consecutive order, from the left to right when facing the vehicle, separated by a dash 1 inch long.

The letters or markings are usually 2 or 3 inches.

Talk to Rick Larson Stencis. :banghead:

I was wanting to make my own for the front of her bumper, painted black. I was just gonna blue tape the bumper & cut the numbers out w/a razor knife but if I can get the font & print it I could trace them for now.

I would use my numbers 254 FA BN(left side) SVC Btry(right side)

P.S. Jim, she's liking the camo but I told her the base would have to be the OD green like the front bumper/CJ8 to make it look decent.

Might need to add this decal from Rick Larson. :sneak:

I was thinking about this once but the time and trouble and I had to do so many that I finally called Rick.

From this picture you can see my 3" front markings. That's me posing for a newspaper shot 2 years ago. :banghead:

My how U changed in two yrs. :banghead:

Jim, can U measure the height/width of the markings (the letter "D" would be a good one to measure the width on), looks like 3" from the pic.

All the markings (even the hood) are 3"s tall by 2"s wide. If you double (2 rows) than they are 2"s tall by 1.5"s.

Here is the rear, did not have better ones... look at the driver side double row.

Thanks, that helps out a lot. I'll post the pics later this week. Hopefully it will turn out ok as this is an experiment w/her camo job & lettering. I can't get the bumperets on cause she have a trailer hitch so I think I will leave them off for now. I'm gonna do black letters on the bumper so it will blend in w/the camo paint & not throw it to far off. Pics to come.

Was the "rollover warning" decal for a M151 MUTT?

I've had all my stencils made up by a local sign company that it also one of my customers.

They made three sets of three inch high vinyl decals for stencils which I stuck on, painted through, and then peeled off. They also made me the "permanent stencil" out of a harder plastic for putting on my unit markings. Jim, if you'd like I can take pics of these and send them to an email address. I can't post them with the phone that I view the internet with.

Glad to see that you're getting along to this point.

Dave, why don't you also post the company contact information where you had these made so others can have a few avenues available to them.

Thanks Dave that would be great if U could post the information for me & everyone else.

The CJ U C is Peaches Jeep, it needed a paint job so I thought I would play around, she likes it. I moved to Inverness two months ago & she is waiting until her job close down B-4 she comes up here. The front bumper is the Military OD (I forget the number 20...) base w/the wal-mart OD sprayed over it. U can see that the fenders are a different green that the bumper. I asked Peach if she wanted me to shoot the CJ w/the Military OD base & then make it look like the front bumper, she said that would be cool but has to think on it. I bet she goes for it.

The CJ8 is still down South & I haven't gotten the chance to bring it up to work on it but hopefully soon.

P.P.S. The rollover decal is off Rick Larson's web page, I just posted that for JimI

The customer is Express Signs & Graphics in Apoka, but any vinyl graphics shop can cut them for you. They just have to do a "reverse cut" and throw away the alpha numeric characters and leave you the "surround" that usually gets thrown away. They need to cut that surround as "square" as possible rather than leave it ragged and crooked the way they would if you were applying the letters and numbers. If they can cut it square, then you will have an easier time of measuring so that you can place it correctly before smoothing it down and painting it.

As far as those color numbers, Federal Standard 24087 is the semi gloss OD that the Army used from the time of the Korean War until they switched to the new color, 34094. (If it begins with a 2 it's a Semi Gloss and a 3 is a flat. Gloss colors begin with a 1.) WWII Army jeeps use one of three ODs, but most seem to be 33070.

The Marines used 24052 after WWII. That's the Mighty Mite's color.

Thanks Dave, I have to get the can & check the OD number. We have a vinyl shop here that is making some windshield logos, I'll print your post & ask them.
