Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

I decided to go with just 'HEMI' part number 68028278AB.

LOL... But some of us might happen to be rednecks, good ole boys, or just old fashioned gear heads! I personally like badges, and if placed correctly with seams or creases they can add to the "art work". Ouch, did I say Art work! To me the totally de-badged rig brings back memories of the re-painted or repaired rigs that lost or didn't replace their badges.
To really blow the de-badgers, I'm pondering placing on sides too!
But I like to change things too... I'll take the 4x4 & Overland and move them to the right side and install new badges on the left side. That makes'em look for an extra second. It's all a personal taste and they all look great clean & shinny!

Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

I had a hard time deciding which badge to put on. For me it was an omission that I had to correct. I went with the 5.7L badge.

Looks Great! I too had a hard time deciding. I ordered all 3 flavors of Hemi & 5.7 emblems, went to local dealership (after hours) and taped them on and photographed while experimenting with different placements & emblems.

IMO, the Stone White (light colors) looks much better and more of a fit for Emblems than the darker colors. Emblems on darker colors need to be minimal or not chrome so they don't overly draw the eyes. Emblems on the Stone White looks like a finished product! Again, I'm Pro-Badger Urrg Urrg!

Re: Wk2 Lack of Hemi Badge

My 2005 GC had the 4x4 on the left and the 5.7L with LIMITED underneath on the right. I'm thinking the 2011 Overland Summit badge should have been on the right instead of underneath the 4x4 on the right...

Oddly, I'm thinking about adding the 5.7L Hemi to the right and removing the Jeep from the front hood nose.
