    That's the Kaiser era Jeep logo for hubcaps and the like. I don't know if they ever had an external logo that said "Kaiser" on it.

    The closest thing to a Kaiser Jeep logo might be the fonts on the data plate and certification plate:

    The first 100 Maverick Special Willys Wagons had a "Circle-K" Kaiser badge on the side, but I can't Google up a photo.

    I don't see any signs fro Kayser,; maybe they were not proud of their production.
    My Jeep was exported from USA, so they should have been proud ???

    I believe the graphic logo in the center of this patch is the same one used for Kaiser Industries, though this version specifically reflects Jeep.

    The logo shown in the first post above is the one that was used on Full Size Jeeps and Jeepster Commandos, and on the CJ-5A Tuxedo Park hubcaps.

    The text "logo" in the second post was used on the CJ's, but as far as I know, in those vehicles it only appeared on the small engine compartment plates pictured above, the Timing / Emissions Stickers starting in '67, and on the Kaiser Jeep Corp. VIN decals.

    The question is a good one, but I can't think of a graphic (i.e. non-text-only) logo that has both Kaiser and Jeep on it.

    I worked for Kaiser Engineers in the Kaiser building in Oakland for 15 years.
    The logo, without the "jeep" was indeed Kaiser Industries logo. Kaiser Steel, Aluminum, Cement, Chemical, Aerospace, etc. all in one big building. In the cafeteria on the second floor was an area where the pilots hung out, Best part of my working life.

    Just above the battery on the V6 models. This photo is of an original of that plate on a 1966 Tux.

    The originals were attached with some kind of past / glue (and most fell off, just like the paint / trim code tags usually did). I used double-sided Gorilla Tape to put mine on.

    Grant, the Warn Hubs decals were either owner- or dealer-applied, rather than being put on at the factory, so there wasn't really a standard location. Generally speaking, they seem to have been most often placed on the lower left portion of the dash, but there were many variations.

    Agreed they could be anywhere.

    They stuck it under the hood of my '69:

    And on the dash of my '71:

    This is the correct location for the Willys/Kaiser/Jeep foil on the ‘64 -up Jeeps with the F-134 too.
    As far as the Warn locking hub or Lock-o-Matic decals, I have seen them on both the outside and inside the glove box door.
