Badged or Debadged?

Quick question to everyone to see what the preference is. I just had Xpel put on my entire hood, entire fender, bumper and grill and I was initially going to have them put the badge back on, but after seeing it...it looked pretty clean. So, what do you all think, badged or debadged?

Re: Badged or Debadged?

I could never see the point of debadging, but it looks good.

Leave it off.

I didn't think I'd like it either, but it looks much better in person than pics

Wow that expel is expensive..I'm thinking I'll probably take off that front hood jeep insignia..it does look nice without it,plus with the trail rated badges on both sides of my overland there's enough to identify it.

Xpel is expensive but it's some good stuff. Check out their website, they have some cool videos of how it self heals from scratches and what not (for the Ultimate version, which is what I got). Plus if I hadn't gotten full hood and full fenders it would've been half the price.

I was debating whether going a step further and taking the Grand Cherokee badges off the side too...but I don't know yet.

I couldn't do just the front 18-24" or so...I knew that line would drive me insane overtime. The place here did a great job of tucking and wrapping everything that they could.
