Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Looks great with the "Limited"! Nice job.

I think the black HEMI however, balances out better with the "Overland" logo.

We're all gonna have to start the "HEMI PERFORMANCE PACKAGE" club.

I like the look and that is all that matters.
I think it is the curve of the liftgate that makes the badges look "crooked" in photos. If you look closely, all the "4x4" installed at the factory look "crooked" in photos. That is why I did the template then flipped for mirror template so that the 5.7L would have the same placement...was afraid that if I eyeballed it that it would look straight but would look odd compared to how the factory installed 4x4 was installed.

Look great!

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Actually, I put a level on my 4x4 factory badge, and they are off a bit (not perfectly level).

That's assuming the Jeep is on level ground.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Ever since I put the 5.7L HEMI badges on, the first thing everyone comments on is that it has a Hemi. Previously, a few asked which engine......but now everyone says Hemi with admiration! Jeep made a mistake by not badge the Hemi in my opinion.

A WK2 limited... Anyway, is it really necessary to go as far as ordering a non stock emblem to tell the person driving behind you that you drive a V8? and I'm just saying.... Sounds like a small penis problem to me.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Its like the tool bag who gets a tattoo on his shoulder and then wears wife beaters everywhere. Tacky, insecure people. Grow up.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Hey rhaines - Sometimes it is better to not post comments if you have nothing constructive to say. All my previous Jeep Grand Cherokees had something about the higher option engine on it except this one...probably to downplay the gas guzzling...but the V6 gets a flex fuel badge to tell everyone it is flex fuel (why no comment on that). I think aesthetically it looks better to be balanced...just my opinion.
