That means you have the V8, not the V6.

Good information to know, thanks for the correction. Every one I've seen on the lot here that has the V6 seems to have the Flex Fuel thing. Guess I'll have to pay more attention.

I guess my dual exhaust makes it look like I have the v8 also

Re: How do you know it's a V8?

I purchased the 5.7 Hemi badge and put it below the 4x4 badge on the left side of the rear door.

Yes, I am proud that my Overland has a roar.

Just stomp on the gas. If your head snaps back it's a V8

Re: How do you know it's a V8?

Anyone who knows Jeeps and knows it's a '14 also knows you have a Hemi badge ... no more, no less.

If anyone asks I'll allow them to look under the hood.

However, I get what you're trying to say. I think if anyone (who knows jeeps) sees the badge they think two things

1-he added the hemi badge
2-he has a hemi

I'm ok with that.

Maybe if you saw it you'd think I had a v6 but stuck a hemi badge on the back of my jeep anyway.

I'm ok with that too bill.
