Oh, I didn't know you have ordered one, didn't intent to criticize anyone's choices as no one had posted a photo of a slanted HEMI under "letter" badges....was just giving what my opinion/preference would be if using the slanted HEMI.

Please post once you have yours, will be interested to see it!

Re: HEMI Badge - Gonna add one to the 2014

I actually thought about getting a hemi badge but decided against it. I know what's under the hood and the guy next to me doesn't care. He'll know when he tries to beat me off the line with his adequate, but underpowered 6 banger, all the while getting a whopping 2-3MPG's more than me. That's what he'll say to his wife when he's choking on my dust.

I believe I have your same train of thought but I actually get the Chevy trucks trying to show off. I had this older silverado try to beat me off n get in front of me which I eventually let them cause had my wife and new 3 month old. Also the break in was not completed. I believe it is now and I can tell the difference. Honestly I like how it looks with the badge.

But...but....but the HEMI badge makes it run faster! LOL

Actually, I was disappointed when the 2011's came out and Jeep didn't include the HEMI badge (or 5.7L) like they did in all the other model years....(I've had a GC since the beginning of GC's). Yet, Jeep put on goofy (IMO) "FLEXFUEL" badges for the V6's. To me, Jeep was pandering to the anti-large SUV/HUMMER people. Jeep sells a V8 HEMI engine so not putting on a badge doesn't make it anymore "eco friendly". Nonsense.

Now, fast forward to the 2014 model year and there is a badge for the ECODIESEL too but still none for the HEMI. They put badges on for the other two engines but NOT for the V8 HEMI. A shame. So, I added my own...and it looks great!

LOL... pandering is right.

I have a V6 and they didn't put the flexfuel on mine. Had they, I would've pried it off the moment I got home with it.

Flexfuel is the biggest joke ever foisted on the driving public.

Hey dub, did you do any prep work before installing it? Such as cleaning the area where the install is?

I did clean the area pre installation. Then an eye ball test to make sure it was level and looked right where I was planning to put it. That's it though. Pretty straightforward.

Re: HEMI Badge - Gonna add one to the 2014

^^^^^^^

Be sure to clean the area with rubbing alcohol and let dry before installing a badge. Also, I created a template for placement all measured out since once it is on, it is on.
