Default De-Badge / Re-Badge...Advice Requested

So I spent a few hours removing all the badges, with the intent of blacking everything out and re-installing them all in the factory locations... however this runs counter to my norm. I typically de-badge everything because I love the clean and simple look, however with the crew cab, there is a whole lot of door, and while I might just be getting used to it, I feel it might need something to break it up.

So I have a few options, but I can't quite decide on one... and everyone in my family has a different opinion. So I thought I would throw up a couple of pics and solicit input from the Z family.

So, option 1 is no badges (other than Ram's heads front and rear).
Option 2 is blacked out RAM on the fenders, about where the Hemi badges were.
Option 3 is blacked out RAM on the doors, just a little higher than stock (so they are in line with the HEMI in the tail stripe).
Option 4 (no pic) is blacked out RAM just above the lower body line on the door.
I don't plan to put the HEMI badges back on, though I did split the HEMI and 5.7 liter apart in case I do want to put the blacked out HEMI somewhere else later.

So, it's now in your hands. What say ye?

Option 1 I guess..........2 sounds good as well, though 3 and 4 would look really good. So, there ya go...

Two things I don't think you need.

1. Hemi badge.
2. Anything that says Dodge.

Way I see it, if someone sees Ram or the Ram head they'll know its a Dodge. As for why no Hemi, simple, they'll know it when you blow their doors off.

After seeing the pics, I say pic #1 with the blacked out R A M on the fender or leave it with no badges other than the front and rear ones.

I had thought about that at one point, something like the SRT challenger hood stripes, but I'm still a "less-is-more" kinda guy.
