I'm glad people find that thread funny.

On a serious note (not...) adding badges is kinda dumb IMO. I saw a few WK2's up here in Pittsburgh with the Hemi badges and I wanted to go up to them and ask "Hey, you got a Hemi in that", hillbilly redneck style like the old commercials. I have a Hemi and like that it doesn't scream "Hemi" to everyone in the form of badges.

PS,
Did I see someone in this thread saw they would rather have a Hyundai than a BMW??? Please put the crack pipe down, sir.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

^Without looking first, I would bet that the WK2 forum has yet to have a thread worthy of the Flammables SubForum.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Yeah, I just read all 9 pages.

Well, I would be loathe to put anything that wasn't true on my vehicle, but if it has a 5.7 (it does) and it IS a Hemi, then .... why not put the badges on?
I don't see why you shouldn't be able to, if YOU WANT them.
And if you don't, then don't. Quite simple, really. (IMHO)

And I was googling just now, and found an article on the "Popular Mechanic" website about this topic. Thought it was kinda relevant.
Here is the exerpt:
QUOTE:
"Of course, a 5.7-liter V8 is optional with a whopping 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. It is still a Chrysler Hemi V8, but don't expect to see the name "Hemi" anywhere on this Jeep. Planners found that the term "Hemi" does not resonate with some potential Grand Cherokee buyers, so from now on this is the "MDS V8," highlighting the engine's multi-displacement technology. Regardless of its name, the 5.7-liter V8 in 4WD Cherokees will return 13 mpg city and 19 on the highway and will tow 7200 pounds. Both engines are paired to five-speed automatics, and you can spot the V8 Jeeps by a dual exhaust."
Anyway, regardless of the debate, I want to thank those near the beginning of the thread who posted links and pics of their mods.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Thanks for all the *interesting* responses to my thread. I decided not to put the hemi badge on and throw a NY Mets badge on Instead!

I think we can say that about many things we do to mod our Jeeps.

Ha. Agreed. I saw a Green WK2 Limited with a Notre Dame emblem on it. Not a fan.
