Note the Plow Lights substituted for the MB Headlights in the bumper, like on Ben's truck. This was very common, if not universal, on UNIMOGs imported to the US for Municipal duties. DOT approved, and better illumination, I'd speculate.

I assumed that was just something the town guys did at some point when they broke the Mercedes ones. That looks exactly like what I swapped out on mine

I have a number of photos of UNIMOGs with the same Plow lights in the same spot. It could have been a Jack Russell thing (speculation), or it may have had to do with the 'legalizing for Import' shuffle.

Some photos from Jack Russell's photo album. Plow lights on some, but not all. The White ones with the US Government plates have the MB lights.

Just a quick look came up with these examples, All from the US. I'm sure I have more. Some trucks appear more than once.

The Plow lights and the UNIMOG vinyl on the door appear together too often for it to be a coincidence, in my mind.
I suspect that the same hand was at work, and while I think the Graphic is dorky looking, as a marketing tool, I can see where they were going.
Plus, it would eliminate one question.

Without the UNIMOG Sticker :

'WHAT the hell is THAT ?'
Answer ; 'It's a UNIMOG!'
'What the hell is a UNIMOG ?'

With the UNIMOG sticker :
'What the hell is a UNIMOG ?'

I'm not sure that Kelvin's white DOKA has the plow lights, as you can't make them out as it works its way up the hill snow blowing Backwards...but it has the UNIMOG sticker, so I would bet on it.

Ex-Russian firetruck, listed for sale in the Netherlands. It would be nice to see some more details of that bed.

I like the Transformer-like look of it - the camper would look a lot better on the back of my mog however :p

I worry about the wheel bearings a bit, but MB
Tracs run huge, wide tires on UNIMOG axles,
So, I’m going to stand on it and hope for the best.

I’m not going to Walk on it, however, being a graduate of the Lego / floor / minefield school of parenting.
