Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

After thinking about it....I made a photocopy of the badge and will hang the cut out photocopy with removable tape until it looks right (after measuring first of course). There are two reference holes in the 5.7L part which is fronted with clear plastic too so might use the reference holes for aligning the photocopy then the badge....shouldn't be too tough I suppose.

Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

I measured the distance of the 4x4 badge from the crease above and the edge from the left of the tailgate. I used masking tape (= to measurements) along the crease of the tailgait (right) to match the depth below the crease line and also taped off the right edge to match the left, to align the new badge. (sorry if this sounds confusing)

I guess you can just "eye it" too.

(A laser level will be off if the vehicle is not on a level surface.)

When My 2014 arrives the Overland badge gets moved to the left and this goes on the right.

I like that one. I might buy it too and compare it to the one I ordered above.
Im thinking more that the one I bought is a bit too busy even though my JGC is Red and I thought it would look good.

Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

I was almost going to buy the one with the red, but since my G.C. is true blue I opted for the black. I am thinking the 5.7 L will match the 4x4 on the left and the Hemi match the overland on the left.

Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

I've never added a badge to any of my vehicles. Just got Overland and it needs the Hemi badge. Do they stick onto the body well? I'd think carwashes and rain would loosen it up over time. Are the factory badges stuck on or do they have posts drilled into the body?

They are "factory" badges just like all the existing ones. They don't drill holes for badges moldings etc. anymore - they use industrial strength adhesives. Just be sure to clean then wipe area with rubbing alcohol before sticking it on to make sure area is clean clean. Works great!
