finally got a couple of pics up. been doing a couple small mods. visually, its debadged (except the HEMI), with the dreaded ebay headlights. i figured id give them a try. engine mods are a mopar intake and a predator tuner. oh and one new front bumper due to someone backing into me.

Love the debadged look. Nice work.

If you didn't already make sure you wax the areas under the emblems you removed.

wax those areas? no i didnt. what the reason for doing that? just extra protection?

The letters can "ghost" on you.

Clean the areas real well with some goo gone and then wax the areas for protection. When I did mine I did multiple coats of wax. I know depends on how old your car is when you debadge it but I would not take any chances.

Looks great! :thumbsup:

I just debaged my 2001 WJ a month or so ago, and if I look close I can still see whre the "4x4" logo was on the left rear quarter panel. Make sure all the adhesive is off and wash & wax it good to protect those areas. This is the first time that paint has seen any wax.

Paint the turn signal reflector and put a switchback in there. :thumbsup:

Looks great! Might I ask where you got a fresh, painted front bumper from and how much? I'd love to replace mine but I can't imagine its cheap. Same 2008 Limited, but in Modern Blue color.
