Here is another pic of the headlight guards, the dash tag, and rear bumper. Those along with the fender mount mirrors are what were commonly equipped on the Military rigs:

Looks like that could also be one of the previous gen Bestops.

I was the commanders driver at a Maint. Bn in Idar Oberstien Germany back in 1970.
We had a pair of Broncos. Mine stood tall. It was sedan olive green. It sure beat an M-151
jeep. We seldom drove off pavement. Give me an email address and I will forward pictures.

Im late as usual but I have a question. My bronco is titled as a 1970 and I have gone tthru the vin decoders etc and it seems my data plates are incomplete. The data plate on the glovebox door shows a DSO code of830025 which if Im reading correctly means 83 = Government what would the 0025 mean?. There is no color code on the plate either. Thank you for any info you may have

Order a complete Marti Report, it should fill in the blanks. There's no way to no what the special order DSO was for with out one. Does your VIN match the VIN on the frame?
