The modern Jeep Wrangler Military Theme Picture Thread

There are forum threads of military themed Jeeps of the various models but I'm hoping to pull them all together in one spot. This way people's great ideas aren't restricted to a single model Wrangler.

Here's my "Sarge", I'm sure most of you have seen him and I've had lots of fun with it.
I tried to make the markings circa 1941 with the "Invasion Stars" (star surrounded by a broken circle) from the 7th Troop Transport Squadron of the US Army Air Corps.

I did the majority of my research here: US_Vehicle_Markings.pdf

And I purchased most of my stencils and vinyl stickers here: Military Stencils
but here is another resource for military decals: solargraphicsUSA.com - Restoration Decals

I sold it this past spring, but here's a couple of the most recent pics after the flat fenders were installed. Refer to my link below for a good chunk of the build thread. I miss him.

Nothing against the military decals on a factory paint job, heck I have a factory paint job. I think they look so much better on OD matt paint. :action-smiley:

Thanks for all the posts so far guys, they look awsome.:thumb:

(1Topp, I figured you'd be one of the first, thanks for representing the desert tan!) :D

I guess I'm showing the kid in me, I want to take my YJ and turn him into the transformer Autobot Hound. He was based off of an old military jeep and later just a Wrangler. I'm going to put the Oscar-Mike star in the center of my hood and Autobot symbols above the Jeep name.

Only one I have on my computer right now. The "serial" number on the hood is my dads birthday. 05 for May, 40 for the year. He's an "old" Air Commando from Vietnam/Laos. I always joke with him, when I joined the military I told him "you Air Force guys have it to easy, playing golf all the time, so I'm gonna join the Navy and rough it" LOL...

I wish I can be just half the Dad and person he is, if I can attain that I'll be doing an excellent job.

I have a '99 tan/Gold TJ but it would be badass to give it the Desert Military look!

Thank you for all this info! went through the Solargraphics site and purchased my decals, just to find out they will be closed for two weeks and I have to wait until August 12th for them to ship :banghead: oh well, it will be worth the wait...

I've been working with: Military Stencils

They have both stencils and vinyl stickers. You can get individual decals or complete sets (stars, numbers, etc.)

When I restored my 1942 Willys MB-T trailer and got the complete set from them.

blade4804 08-01-2013 05:17 PM

Yeah I looked at them first but they were a little high on price for my budget. I love the trailer, where did you get it?

Picked it up for $300 on Craig's list, the guy didn't know what he had, it was just another trailer to him.

So I can finally add my Jeep (which has been christened "War Pig" by one of my buddies) to the Official thread. Forgive the multiple posts but the forum refused to let me do it in a long one or let me do it in short ones with the pics just pasted in, I just kept receiving different error massages ... Anyway, I feel like some back story is needed to catch everyone up whether they were on my thread or not.
I stated out with a 2009 2 door JK sport as my first Jeep and loved it. It took a year to get to the point it was in this pic, which was taken about a week after the mods (2.5" Teraflex lift, 17" Procomp rims, and 33" Duratracs) on the day I finished adding the decals. At this point I only had the US Flags which were on order, and a custom rendition of the Gadsden Flag to put on. As well as letting the weather clear up enough to put on the soft top i bought for it.

But then tragedy! Exactly six days after my mods I was driving home from work at 2AM (I'm a server working through college) and got hit and run by a drunk driver. Or at least we assume he was drunk because he was never caught. Although the damage doesn't look to bad from the pic the crash was by no means a love tap. I walked away with only whiplash but most people in on the story think if not for the A/T tires holding their ground I would have been spun several times and badly injured. My Jeep didn't fare so well... the front axle, body, and frame were all bent beyond repair. It was totaled. I was devastated especially after all the money I had just dropped on it. However, my ins. company pulled through and I actually made money on the deal!
