Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges
 
Has anyone thought of removing the chrome door strips and adhering the "Grand Cherokee" badges from an SRT8? See the picture if you don't know what I'm talking about. I think the chrome is a bit too much. I've seen others take it off, but it's a bit too plain, this is a good in-between. I'm not a fan of "up-badging" but it doesn't say SRT8, so that's not really a concern.

Looks like a nice option, cept for losing the ding protection.

I assume the lettering is in chrome?

I agree with you...the chrome strip on the side looks tacky...soon as I can get the srt8 badging I am going to put it on...that looks much better than the crap strip

+1 to the SRT8 badge instead.

My mouldings are going to Scott's Paint and Performance for body color match like the rear hatch. Unfortunately, we need to keep 'em for door dingers.

Just my 2 cents but to me it takes away from "the lines" of the GC when you remove the chrome strips.

I like this idea but still not a fan of chrome anything i am getting my strip taken off this weekend...what would be hot especially on red is to
Paint the srt8 GC badging black and slap em on

Yes, I think that'd be a nice option - but 13 individual pieces to place. :eek:
