Opinions needed " GRAND CHEROKEE " on the front instead of " JEEP "

I've been contemplating replacing the JEEP emblem from the front hood and replacing it with the GRAND CHEROKEE emblem off the srt8. Not sure how long or or how thick the letters are? Something like the Range Rover, what do you think?

I like the idea - Might be a long name for the front, but could look pretty sweet if done right. Give it a try!

NO. Then it would bring more attention in the front. No reason too. Jeep looks just perfect with "JEEP" on the front. No reason for putting MORE.

IMHO, The only reason Range Rover can pull that off is each word has an equal number of letters. Seeing Grand Cherokee on the front would drive me crazy b/c it would not be symmetrical, but I am weird like that!

*NOTE: This is coming from a person that HATE any type of badge on a car. *

I think its a little much. Too many words, might have to bunch it all together that would make it look even worst. Hard to line up all of the words together. etc.

It's a valid point. I like the idea but I don't think it could work. Maybe someone with photoshop skills could mock it up for you?

No, IMO Jeep or nada.

But it's your rig and it wouldn't cost much to try.

I second the photoshop attempt. I have no idea on how to use photoshop or else I would do it for you.

Re: Opinions needed " GRAND CHEROKEE " on the front instead of " JEEP "

I would have to see a photoshop job before I pass judgment. I think it would look to much like an imitation range rover look.

The biggest problem you will have it getting large enough "Grand Cherokee" badges to make it look proper.



BTW.....The Range Rover needs a wax job for sure, LOL

Swap out the door chrome strips for the SRT8 lettering, but please don't put it on the hood!
