Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I am currently on vacation and am staying near Vail, CO. Anyone know the best place to pick up a set of SRT8 badges???
I have colored the chrome strips black, the same as all the window and bumper chromes and I'm having the Grand Cherokee on the side strips filled in and replaced with SRT8 badges to match the back one.

The closet Jeep dealer is in Silverthorne, which is ~20 miles from Vail. You'll want to check to make sure they have the part in stock, of course.

Alternatively, you can order the part from justforjeeps (highly recommended), and have it shipped to your hotel.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I think this is an amazing mod and really adds to the lines of the Grand Cherokee. IE: not covered or overly highlighted with the chrome strips.)

So once removed, if we don't like the mod for some reason, what can we use to re-attach the original chrome strips???

Also, are the original strips removed using the usual hair dryer/heat gun method?

I pretty much put it in the same location as the srt8.
Did they come on a sheet with proper spacing already and you could easily attached them while staying lined up?

Or did you have to attach each one individually?

Yes, all on one sheet.

You can use 3M tape (found at local auto store) to re-attach the strips, but trust me, you'll love it without.

I know I will love it (and I'm gonna get some crap for saying this) but I want to make sure I have a backup plan in case the fiance doesn't like it as it is her daily driver

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I think you saved yourself with adding the "her daily driver" on the end

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I ended up taking off the chrome strips, but have not yet ordered the SRT8 side badges..

I don't know if I actually will even order them now that I look at my Jeep and love it even more!

The clean sides really compliment the styling of the jeep!

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

For $27.00 do you get just one or do you get two?
