    4H 1420 is most likely the original hood registration numbers as it fits the pattern for a 66' truck so why add it in 2 spots on the bumper? Also DSPTBN is way too many letters for a bumper. Back in the day they were way more simpler about it compared to todays smaller markings. According to the manual it should just simply be 132 SPT.

    Way too much. If you're going to ask for help, and then not take it, why ask?

    Star is center of the bumper. the "4H-1420" doesn't make any sense with respect to what you've been asking. DSPTBN is way too much, DSB is what you'd be looking at. With the size you went with, take out WI-NG since 32nd ID is WI-NG (with some elements in MN/MI/IL).

    Thanks for clarifying. Im going to repring vinyl with 2 inch letters. Didn't know about those being the same. The DMV in texas said i have to have the 4H-1420 on both sides of the front bumper. And on the back of the truck.

    Oh, that's different and you didn't mention that.

    Do the "4H-1420" as a line below the bumper markings. Make them 2" or so and you should be ok.

    HUH? Interesting because none of mine ever had the registration number on either side of the bumper. Heck I never did my registration number anywhere other than the front hood of my WWII jeep.

    Ooops, Oh look, it's time for my blood pressure and lithium pills.

    Could just be the small town DMV they had to call the state capital DMV to see if it was legal to register the vehicle. The inspector looked at truck and sense the 4H-1420 (original paint on the inside doors) he said it needs to be on the bumper and back.

    Yes, if you're planning on it being a "division support bn" vehicle, then just shorten it to DSB or DSBN.

    Those are a little before my time, and were DISCOMs. you can find some early GWOT pics with Division Support Commands out there and with BN markings. Usually, those Bns were specialty battalions, like POL/TRANS/QM/MAINT and then became Combat Service Support Battalions (CSSBs) under Sustainment Brigades (SUSBDE or SB) but now SUS BDEs are back under the Divisions and are being called Division Sustainment Brigades, or DSBs, with Division Service Support Battalions (DSSBs). there are a few separate ones that will be Corps Support Brigade (CSBs) ala the old COSCOM units, and CSSBs still there. There's a few separate ones out there, but they'll be the exception now.

    Side note, this means that my Brigade patch existed for less than 10 years, and with the Airborne tab for less than 4. lol.

    Before us guys that always try to help on this stuff go chasing our tails again due to any further lack of full disclosure; you need to go back and do some research on the 32nd Infantry Division. Your truck is 1966. In 1967 the 32nd was no longer a division but became a separate infantry brigade. As such they wouldn't have had a MSB (Main Support Battalion) nor a DISCOM nor a division level support battalion unless you are specifically portraying the year 1966.

    I'm doubling my lithium meds for tonight to control the voices. I need to just back away even though 9 out of those 10 voices in my head say I should be mounting the machine guns and cannons on my SdKfz-222 for a road trip.

    Meanwhile, back at the bat cave...

    I figured that i would try to make it as close to the original 1966 as possible except for markings required by the county/state. According to a reply to a post made by you!! I found the exact year it was sold and such. If I had the $$ and resources i would put the box back on it. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...71f770ff00.jpg
