Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

Has anyone thought of removing the chrome door strips and adhering the "Grand Cherokee" badges from an SRT8? See the picture if you don't know what I'm talking about. I think the chrome is a bit too much. I've seen others take it off, but it's a bit too plain, this is a good in-between. I'm not a fan of "up-badging" but it doesn't say SRT8, so that's not really a concern.

Looks like a nice option, cept for losing the ding protection.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I assume the lettering is in chrome?

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

I agree with you...the chrome strip on the side looks tacky...soon as I can get the srt8 badging I am going to put it on...that looks much better than the crap strip

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

+1 to the SRT8 badge instead.

My mouldings are going to Scott's Paint and Performance for body color match like the rear hatch. Unfortunately, we need to keep 'em for door dingers.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

Just my 2 cents but to me it takes away from "the lines" of the GC when you remove the chrome strips.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

Yes, I think that'd be a nice option - but 13 individual pieces to place.
