Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I orderd the Hemi over the 5.7Liter badge from my dealer as part of the transaction when I purchase our 2011 Overland. Also found the same badge, plus other's on ebaY. Just type in hemi badges.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I now have my chrome fog bezels installed and a 5.7L badge on the liftgate. The badge looks so natural and OEM.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I was just watching the DVD owners manual and noticed that the JGC in the video had a HEMI badge... Does that mean it is coming soon?

I snapped a screenshot.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I finally took pics of my 5.7L badge and chrome bezels for those interesred. (sorry about the contrast, it's difficult with white vehicles)

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

After studying my JGC and looking at a bunch of other SUVS out there, the side view kinda is generic among a lot of them. Especially to the less enthusiatic fans in the general public. So...I chose to add the black Hemi like the one in K9jackie's thread above along with an extra Trail Rated badge on the passenger's side (Libras like balance). After hearing "It looks like a Ford Edge kinda" I wanted everyone to know what I am driving. However...... I must admit I've always been a fan of the naked look, particularly in my mind as I view some of the fans at certain points in time like at a Spring Training game in AZ. Heaven bless the sunny weather here.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Got the 5.7L and HEMI badges installed today. What I did was take some pieces of cardstock (or index cards) and placed the straight edges of them around the 4x4 badge but over the Overland Summit badge making sure they were precise around the 4x4 and also overlapping the edge of the tailgate. Taped them all together well. Then with the liftgate open from the underside made an outline edge of the liftgate with a pen on the underside of the taped together cardstock pieces. Carefully removed the tape together cardstock and cut along the marked line. Then flipped it over and aligned the cardstock template with the right side of the liftgate and taped it to the liftgate. Made sure it looked correct. Then after cleaning the area with 50/50 water and rubbing alcohol...and drying it...placed the 5.7L badge to the right top of the cut out.

That aligns it with the same angle as the 4x4....just the mirror image of it.

Then put a piece of tape in the middle of the 5.7L and marked the center on the tape. Did the same with the HEMI badge. Then cut a 1/4" piece of cardstock and drew a line in the center of it up and down after cutting it aligned the cardstock mark with the center mark on the 5.7L and then taped the cardstock underneath the 5.7L.

The 4x4 and Overland Summit badges are separated by 1/4". I wasn't sure if I should separate the 5.7L and HEMI badges by the same amount (I knew the 4x4 and 5.7L should align along the top and bottoms and the edges of the liftgate for sure and the badges underneath should be center with the ones above) but wasn't sure if I should lower the HEMI badge so the center of it (horizontal center) should align with the horizontal center of the Overland Summit badge or keep the same 1/4" separation. I decided on keeping the same 1/4" separation to keep the look of the 5.7L and HEMI as a tighter grouping almost like one badge. Reasonable minds could differ I suppose...

So here is a photo....

What do you think???

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

^^^ The shadows on the photo make it hard to tell...the fonts on the 4x4 and 5.7L are the same despite the shadows making one look thinner than the other. Will have to park it in direct sunlight and take another photo....

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Plus then there is the question of vertical alignment with the oval Overland part of the badge or the oval Overland with the SUMMIT extended part.... So, just did the 1/4" which is what I think makes the most sense overall.....

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Oh, and the recent people I showed my new Jeep two all said...."oh, it has a Hemi"...now that the badge is on it. Previously, I had to point it out...

5.7L HEMI badges...
