    Another one of those "Jeep" conundrums.
    I have a Feb and Mar 71 both with double sided V6 badges, my friend has a Mar 71 with pins. My 69 and 70 both have the pins. Both of my 71's are 1 owner with pics when new.

    Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions as to why the deviation from pins to taped on these two?

    cost.
    tape was most likely a cheap solution to cut corners.

    Perhaps the v6 badges were a factory option? Factory got pin on badges, Dealer install were stick on?
    Steve's 71 came with pin on. My 69 had holes for pin on..... PO filled em with bondo.....
    Either way I would go with pin on myself.

    my 71 has stick on
    and I am the third owner :D 39 years
    first two didn't do anything but clutch
    I wouldn't think they were dealer add on , so I would say factory

    I have no doubt that they are/were factory. I was more confused as to why a known 1 owner in between my two known one owners was pinned and the book ends were taped? Oh well, such is Jeep..
