Military Decals

Hey~ So I am thinking of putting on a few decals onto my TJ and I need to know why people put the military #'s on. I myself am in the Army Reserves and would LOVE to customize my Jeep to look more "Militaryish" but I dont know what numbers to put on cause I dont know why people pick the numbers myself.

I LOVE the image I put in here and I want something like this. Was thinking of incorporating parts of my own miitary # and the year of the Jeep (2004) into the decal....what do you think?

Anyone know why people pick the numbers they do??

For this guy his decal is kind of easy. He has a 2008 JK = 08JK. There must be something special about 1936 for him or the numbers stand for something individually.

For me I would do 97TJ96B30

97=year of TJ

96B=Army MOS code

30=rank/level within that code.

This is also common: 41MB-97TJ

41MB= first year of the jeep

97TJ= the year of my jeep

Just change up the second number for whatever year you've got. In your case 41MB-04TJ.

I am confused. Your service number is your SSN. Explain the numbers and it might make sense to me. As long as you know what it means. I really like the look. I will be doing mine soon. I am still trying to figure out what I should put. I might do the 97TJ96B30 but I thought about doing something a little more personal instead. I haven't had much time to think about it.

I do agree that it looks cool.

On out trucks we just have for example, 101ABN 1BCT 2-327 BCO87. 101st airborne first brigade combat team, 2nd 327 bravo company truck 87. Thats not all in one string though, its on different corners of the truck and stuff, I think what you are looking for is BCO87 number.

The service number became the SSAN sometime in the late 1960's, I think. Prior to that, you were assigned another number when you enlisted/were commissioned.

Military vehicle "bumper numbers" (that's what they're called) are the military official utility vehicle replacements for license plates numbers - which is why they're found on both ends (typically on the bumpers themselves, on a flat surface.) The numbers are stencilled on, not decals.

You can probably Google <bumper numbers>, or check to see what you can find at steelsoldiers.com or armyjeepparts.com for guidelines.

That being said, you can still do whatever you want. I believe bumper numbers are six or seven digits - but don't quote me on that, see what you can find out!

Didn't catch that. Way to go with the attention to detail.
