Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

And I'm sorry I think you're a tosser.

I personally like my V8 Hemi badge on my Jeep, but I would have DEFINATELY de-badged it if I only had a V6..... Make of that what you will.

But I'd never put a badge on a vehicle to try and make it something it's not, like millions of BMW drivers do.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

rhaines - The vast majority of people on this blog are great, but you're the first for me to say you're not. Sure hope your infant son doesn't grow up like you. Oh well...obviously YOU'RE the one feeling inferior with your V6. The 5.7L HEMI badges look fantastic.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Almost all cars with a higher-end engine have some emblem to show it... whether it's "V8", "HEMI," "550i," or whatever. Not sure why Jeep dispensed with it on the WK2... but we as the owners are taking matters into our own hands proudly displaying the greatness that is the HEMI.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

I agree!

I mean it would be one thing if we were putting 5.7L HEMI emblems on a V6, "posing" as something we're not. But that's not the case here. Just proud of what we're driving, and putting the appropriate badging on the car, which for all intent and purposes, was probably dropped as either a cost cutting measure, or an attempt at a "politically correct" way not to advertise fuel consumption.

Re: 5.7 L HEMI badge?

Ok. Maybe I am too harsh here.. and I apologize for some of my offensive comments. I just see a bunch of people on here putting non stock 5.7L or HEMI emblems on the back of their car as douchebaggery of the highest order. Come on people... Do we really need to communicate this to feel good? Most of you say you are proud of the HEMI engine you drive around town. So much so that you feel the need to pay $50 dollars or whatever and stick on your car. Lets be honest, its not because it looks great as Dan says. It's because you think you are cooler for driving a HEMI.

To be clear, I could have easily bought a 5.7L for $1500 more but I choose the more practical route. I have no intentions of towing a 7000lb RV. I dont envy or look down on HEMI drivers one little bit. My point is simply that this thread reminds me that there are a lot of petty, insecure people in this world who think they can get laid by slapping a V8 emblem on their car. To me it is just pathetic. Call me all the names you want but deep down you know I am right.
