Special Edition

I just bought my first jeep and you guys have already helped with the back windows. They were unplugged.

The more I study this thing the more I like it. It is in really good shape but has a few odd things that I see on it.

I don't know if this a special edition or belonged to a naval aviator who had a thing for Jeeps.

It has the following aircraft specific markings:
- NO STEP is painted on the back bumper just under the tail gate
- WARNING ARRESTING GEAR is just above the hitch receiver
- It has a set of USN Wings to the right of the spare tire
- it has caution/rescue symbol like near an ejection seat on the front two hard top panels.
- ELT HERE is painted on the tail gate.

This stuff looks like it came from the factory.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks,
Bugman

( . . . or a Jeep owner who had a thing for planes )

It has the following aircraft specific markings:
- NO STEP is painted on the back bumper just under the tail gate
- WARNING ARRESTING GEAR is just above the hitch receiver
- It has a set of USN Wings to the right of the spare tire
- it has caution/rescue symbol like near an ejection seat on the front two hard top panels.
- ELT HERE is painted on the tail gate.

This stuff looks like it came from the factory. Maybe from a factory, but not the Jeep factory.

Does anyone know anything about this?

A person (not the factory) who was an aircraft enthusiast went at your Jeep with stencils and stickers.
That he or she is/was an aviator is a pretty big assumption. They could also just have had access to eBay.


EDIT: If those photos are any indication, he or she was a JUMBO jet enthusiast (pics are huge).

Yeah, I'm in the aviation industry myself...the stencils and decals are readily available....but it isn't a factory thing.

Navy Pilot, crew chief, or a big fan of aviation.

Please shrink your pictures they're too big.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.
