Never seen anything like that with the dealer info on the step bumper. What an odd thing to decide to do! I'd fully guess that the decal kit was added at the same time, but I can't be certain.
Never on a jeep, but I remember seeing ford and chevy pickups with that on the bumpers back in the 60s &70s, back when you bought one,the bumper was not extra

Very common on trucks. Just about every truck my grandfather had from the 50's to the mid 80's had the dealer name stamped in the bumper. That was in Colorado. I remember seeing almost all the trucks around Houston with steel bumpers also had the dealer name stamped in them.

Heck, just saw a truck on Saturday (mid 60's) that had Austin, TX and the dealer name stamped in it.

I think it went out of style in the late 80's early 90's. My bet is they stopped shipping them from the factory without a rear bumper due to crash standards, thus they all had the same rear bumper.

The front bumper and grill guard on the Hawk are unique. Hard to live up to the standard set by the Golden Eagle version though. I've got one CJ I put together from left over parts I scavenged from a few Jeeps . . . maybe I'll call it a Buzzard.

It’s the graphic coming across the top of the door with the letters even further above it. Doesn’t seem to fit the shape of the Jeep at all to me, way too much paint below the graphic on the door.

If it was just the “Hawk” lettering on the hood and the hawk logo on the side, that would look pretty awesome.

Almost didn't see the feathered bangs for all those mudflaps. Standard equipment on the Hawk? :)

Agreed on the graphics, breaks the lines IMO
