Oldie but a Newbie

Hi, everyone!

I've had 2 Jeep GC's over a 20 year period, but my new black-on-black leather 2013 Laredo X with a Hemi is the first brand-new vehicle for me and I love it! I get 12 mpg around town and I still LOVE IT!

Went kinda nuts ordering those little accessories that make a difference in the look of this machine the first day I brought it home recently, everything from window rain vents to floor and cargo mats to "Jeep" mud flaps to new license plate frames. (C'mon, payday!).

The only negative thing for me about this vehicle is I grew up lusting after Hemi engines since the Muscle Car days of the 60's. I finally purchase one, even though it's a modern, civilized version of the beast that struck fear in its opponent's heartsm long ago, and Jeep decides not to "badge" this year's vehicle as a Hemi!

Thanks and I look forward to being here!

Hey Hey Hey! Welcome to Jeep Garage and congrats on the new Jeep!

As far as the badge goes - if you look around on here you could probably - more than likely - find someone that is selling them!

Custom badge it yourself!

Re: Oldie but a Newbie

I probably will do a custom because I figured if I used an avialable one that was intended for a Dodge Hemi Truck or Durango or some other Chrysler product, other Jeepers would think I was silly to stick it on my new GC Laredo.

(Maybe we should make some really nice badges that say "Laredo Hemi" and sell them!)

Thanks!
