non-military military jeeps.

Hey guys I'm sure there is a thread on here for these but I haven't found it. Basically I'm looking for jeeps that aren't official military jeeps but have been painted up to look like them. like yj's, tj's and the such. If there isn't a thread like this I'm really surprised.

Heh Heh, I had the military serial designation and different size stars, but

Since my jeep is yellow, I thought it would be STUPID to tag it as military, so I just used one of the stars

my paint job isnt very fancy but i consider it "field painted" like some jeeps were in WWII but those were hand painted. but my markings are era correct.

I just posted pics in the YJ thread, but my Jeep also applies here.

$20 for 1-gallon can of WWII spec OD green paint from surplus store
$2,000 for professional paint job!

Ammo cans on the console and wheel-wells should make it look good. Maybe jerry cans on the back too. I didn't want any military graphics on it, just the flat OD paint. He put a semi-gloss/matte clear coat on it too. Used to be bright red!
