Funny however, how the "factory" 4x4 badge almost doesn't look perfectly "level'. I've noticed the same thing on mine. Must be the slight "curve" in the rear hood that creates an optical illusion?

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Dan, you're tempting me to add the HEMI under my 5.7L badge.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Hollywood - Yep, I think the curve creates the illusion that the 4x4 is not perfectly. So I made a template (see earlier long post) and flipped it over for the 5.7L so that if there is any angle it would be the same but mirror image. Then added the HEMI the same distance under (and centered) as the Overland Summit badge under the 4x4. I suppose the HEMI could go a bit lower so that it was centered vertically to the horizontal center of the Overland Summit but seems like I wanted the HEMI to be close to the 5.7L

Red G8R - Yep, my parents ordered the combo badges too after seeing mine. The HEMI beats out the "flex fuel" badge on the V6s.....

Lol, I don't think a 2011 Grand could ever be mistaken for a Ford Edge...
Someone did tell me that from the rear it resembled a Cayenne. I like that comparison a bit better.

BTW - the 5.7 Hemi Emblem looks great.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Thanks Dan. Definitely agree this should have been an OEM addition.

I've been having quite a bit of fun with it. A family friend who just bought a black/saddle Summit saw it and said "Hmm...wonder why my car doesn't have that?"

I said: "Didn't you order the Hemi Performance Package?" He got all pale and said, "No, I didn't know one existed".

I think I'm just gonna let him stew for a couple days before I tell him.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I went with the HEMI badge that went on a truck side panel.

It is a bit smaller but it had the black that I wanted.

I used the cardboard and mirror image method that someone else posted and it worked well. It looks crooked but it is not.

I like the look and that is all that matters.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I went with the 5.7 L badge from the Jeep website, then got individual letters from http://chromelettersandnumbers.com to spell HEMI.
