Queston about vehicle markings

I am trying to wrap up my Jeep project, and I am trying to get the markings correct.

If I go with the 82nd AB, 505th, it should read:

82AB-505PI C-4

That will fit on the front bumper, what SHOULD go on the rear? I have seen it abbreviated down to just the first group and one bumper pad and third group on the other bumper pad.

82AB C-4

Is this right?

Re: Queston about vehicle markings

I am remember back to my Army days and I don't think that the Regiment would be part of the vehicle ID. I did a fast google as I was not sure if this was still current for WWII. However, I found this link and thought it would be helpful

WWII Unit Identification Markings for U.S. Military Vehicles, Jeep and Truck Bumper Markings (LoneSentry.com)

My understanding would be 82AB left side and then unit/vehicle on the right (i.e. company vehicle).

I agree the front bumper has more room for this information and I have not seen a good reference for how the rear might look.

Re: Queston about vehicle markings

I'm not sure for WWII but the left bumperette can have two lines. Thus:

82AB-------- C-4
505PI
