    No markings on mine yet. I have the stencils, just not painted them on. My markings are for the truck I drove while in service. The unit however has been renamed since I left.

    Back when I was buying a lot of CUCVs on GL, about half of them still had their bumper markings,about half had been spray painted over. Two of the three I still have in camo have their original markings intact. One is MA NG and the other one is MD NG, I think.

    NO ONE but the truck owner KNOWS if the marking are real or not, they could be your wifes birthday, the truck you had in vn, your dads WW2 truck, ect, ect, ect, ONLY a MORON would throw a fit INSTEAD of ASKING., This is something so far down the priority list, it is not even there. As long the markings are in good taste, not a worry, now if you have some IDIOT put "I love 69" as markings, or worse, WILL get my immediate comment to the owner.

    My truck came out of DRMO completely repainted, so the bumper markings are not there. When I figure out what to put there, it will be stenciled there in black paint...........nothing vulgar or obsecene.

    This is exactly what I was thinking while he was yelling and screaming. Was thinking he had a major parade to organize why is he taking what so much of the little time he had to this. There is something we don't understand about this guy very very bizarre behavior. My personal theory is that he had too much adult beverage. Still no excuse for him acting that way.

    Default Bumper markings

    FNG question here, I don't understand the issue the Marshall had with the marking. Was his point that any military unit bumper markings were on it? Is that illegal?

    Is it a problem with it being active?

    This COULD be the scenario. Maybe the SC National Guard general noticed the markings as the truck passed him and remarked to the Marshall that wasn't his truck ,the truck had SC NG markings, being chemically enhanced the Marshall flew of the handle. As metioned earlier in talking to the general he didn't appeared to be overly concerned. Again had the Marshal asked us with due repect to cover the markings we wold have been happy to do so.

    Keep in mind Andy and I are both veterans. We are part of the group this parade is supposed to be honoring!

    My vehicles have all had bumper numbers painted on them. Some were there when I bought them, some were units I used to belong to (whether still active or not) and the wife's IDF M37 will have Israeli markings on it as soon as I can find someone to paint them on.

    I believe I would have politely told the parade goon to back off and if he didn't, simply turn away and ignore him. I'm sure he was being judged appropriately by those around.
