Hey, where's the "JEEP" on the hood???

I just noticed, after a week of driving the thing, after going to lunch and admiring my fine purchase choice in the beautiful Colorado sun, and parking right between a WC2 Overland and a Laredo, both backed in too, mine is absent of the "JEEP" on the front!!! WHAAAAAAA????

I presume this was a personal removal by the previous owner... they didn't sell them this way, like, ever... did they?

As far as I know they all come with the badge in front, in my case, as well as many others, I had the front and side badges (Grand Cherokee) removed, I think it looks cleaner without badges, but then again that is only my personal opinion.
Regards and badge or no badge...enjoy your "thing"...

Thanks... that's what I figured.
I'm tempted to remove the badging too - I just have concern about any fading that might have occurred.

And she hasn't given me her name yet... she's still "thing" since the spousal hates when I call her the "War Wagon"

War wagon haha!

I actually really want to remove the Jeep from my hood, but I had a protective coating put on the Jeep at the time of purchase so I'm afraid it would leave indent under the letters where obviously the sealant didn't get applied

Biggest, baddest, meanest thing I've ever owned my '14 WC2 is to me, and this coming from a guy who had a Olds 442 and a WRX in past ownership. Both pale in how "invulnerable" I feel in this. It's a posh War Wagon. Leather everywhere, but you KNOW it's a beast if you need it to be. That's how I feel in it anyway.

Mine has the 3M protective film on the front of it too --- no indentation whatsoever. Maybe it was done after removal, who knows.

I just can't believe it took me a week to notice it wasn't there. Then again... I'm still trying to figure out all the command center's features and whether I want to bother investing in UConnect.

I like how safe it feels to and I'm coming from an F-150. At least in the Jeep I have 475 horsepower to get out of the way LOL

My protective coating was a liquid like Cquartz or similar. So I'm pretty sure if I pull mine there will be an indentation down to the clear coat that outlined the Jeep emblem

Invest in Uconnect. Makes life so easy for me when making calls or listening to music.

Re: Hey, where's the "JEEP" on the hood???

mine was removed when I had PPF installed. Had the option of putting it back on, but I liked the clean look. Not to mention, one less area for pain in the pass cleaning.
