I would be po if i saw a ST slapped with SLT emblem :P Paid extra for those added SLT interior features. I know SRT members sometimes get annoyed when they see SRT8 or SRT10 emblems on a 5.7L. Sounds like the same with R/T and non R/T 4G's

I got some compliments about my emblem thinking it was a factory option.

Posing badges is very unoriginal, and I don't personally like it. However I really don't care if people do it lol. Let some guy put an RT badge on his truck, then blow him away and make him look like a fool. Or get blown away and realize someone took a non-RT and made it faster than an RT. All scenarios are possible, most are cool trucks, and it's all up to personal preference. Some like the RT because of it's somewhat rarity, cool factor, and unique factor. If you have an RT, only RT owners have an RT, it's sort of one of a kind. I like BRH's truck, and I can see how people can mistake it for an RT, but realistically anybody who knows about the RT would know it's not an RT just due to the hood and wheels. That said I actually think it looks better than an RT personally, as I don't like the RT hood. Everybody can do what they want, but what's really cool is when you are original and do something unique. I like to see clever license plates, badges, etc.... but there's nothing unique about putting an RT badge on a non RT truck...

One of the coolest badges I've seen was on a clone of a gmc syclone truck that mimicked the orignal "syclone" badge, but said " syCLONE"

Actually the First 4G R/T's (09's and maybe some early 10's) came without the Sport hood, and all had the standard Chrome Clad 20's.
The 11's where actually the first year to get both the "Sport" hood and 22" wheels...but what they dont get is the Tuning to go as fast

09 R/T


My Buddy Adam has an 09 R/T, (white one) only diff is the grille Badge

Did not know that ^, see and I would have thought his was a fake haha!

I also noticed it seems like the 09-10's have "RAM" on the doors, and the 2011+ has "RAM 1500"...

Umm good luck not blowing your motor or transmission up if they're not built. Plus if you have a 2011+ you can't tune it

Putting on an R/T badge on my SLT Sport is like putting a SRT8 badge on my R/T Charger.......and both are debadge......just my two cents.

Well that's not really what "corrected" means lol. Correcting times is a way for people in different geographical areas to level the playing field and more accurately compare times. Your 1/4 mile ET can change as much as 1 second due to altitude and temperature amongst other variables. My truck runs almost a half second slower when I run at funday sunday in the middle of the day (near 100 degrees out) vs at night when it's 70 degrees out or colder... I agree if you ran a 14.5 and it corrects to a 13.9 it's not really fair to go around saying you ran a 13.9, but the fact is if you were at sea level, on a cold night, you would probably run a 13.9 or 14.0. The point is, it's not the car they are correcting, it's the environment...

Got this emblem off Ebay for 50, the factory should have done this already. Threw the front shot in there for GP.
