Installing a 5.7L Hemi badge on rear if you have a V8?

Just curious what your thoughts are? I know some like the clean look and some prefer to be identified as having a Hemi V8, besides the dual tailpipes.

I think just one badge at the right rear looks nice?

I never liked badges. I tend to take them off my cars, not put them on.

I did read that they decided against installing Hemi badges on the WK2 to appear more "green" and to appease the environmentalists.

IMO - Not a fan of badges, I think just knowing the subtle differences is the fun in knowing who has what.

Re: Installing a 5.7L Hemi badge on rear if you have a V8?

I was recently thinking about doing this. Considering just the HEMI badge without the 5.7 though. I just like the looks of the black HEMI with the chrome around it and thought it would balance the 4x4 and Overalnd badge on the other side. There's a long thread about this on this forum somewhere, with pictures from those that did it.

I know. That makes me want to put the badge on even more. I was driving near a Prius a few weeks ago and they were driving very slow. I slammed on the gas as I raced by to make sure they heard the Hemi.

Re: Installing a 5.7L Hemi badge on rear if you have a V8?

Having badges only on the left does not look symetrical so you have the option of removing what was there or putting something on there to balance it out.

I would love to add a Simple V6 to the rear of my car to balance out the chrome on the rear hatch.

While I am talking about symetry I would love to add the dual exhaust to my car as well to make the rear more symetrical with two tips HA HA.

Maybe I will wait until the 8 speed trannies surface and trade in for a HEMI

Re: Installing a 5.7L Hemi badge on rear if you have a V8?

Overland badge, 4x4 badge, Jeep logo on the brow, and then HEMI? It's going to start to look like magnets on the side of refrigerator back there.

I bought my Laredo with the OR1 package. The factory forgot to put on the Trail Rated badge (it's even listed on the sticker as supposed to be there). I was going to bug the dealer about it, but I decided I like the cleaner look.
