Default Debadge or not?

I'm not the kind of guy that ask for opinion on modification, but i'm really not sure on this one.

Picture 1, 100% stock

Picture 2, 1500 Ram debadge

Picture 3, 1500 Ram + Outdoorsman debadge

Picture 4, 1500 Ram + Outdoorsman + Hemi debadge




What do you guy's think?


Edit: New picture with painted handle.

I first debadged the tailgate of my Big Horn, leaving on the ram head. After a couple weeks, I decided to remove the other badges as well.

Personally, I think it looks cleaner. I don't like advertising labels everywhere. To each his own though.

Same thing here, but i'm still not sure.

It's the two tone color that make it hard for me. On the Ram Sport i LOVE the look of the debadge, but on my truck i'm not sure.

I think the Ram 1500 + Outdoorsman off look good, but the little Hemi badge look nowhere after that. Without the Hemi badge, it's like something is missing.

I guess that's why i'm asking you guy's.

I am doing my Laramie this week or next and have the same dilemma. I plan to keep the Hemi badge but may possibly relocate it to another position. Also unsure about the 4x4 badge but I can go either way on that one. In the end, if you like the way your truck looks, that is all that matters.

BTW - Anyone else think it's funny that the word "Hemi" gets caught by the spell check when we post? Seems like that one should be in the forum dictionary.

Any trick on taking the badge off?

For the sticker, a heat gun should be good?

I just now realized that you must have altered those pics to see what it might look like before you got started. Good call. Always best to get a visual before proceeding.

While I have not done mine yet, from what I have read on this forum, heat and fishing line seem to work best for the badges. Also, based on the recommendations of other folks here, I ordered a 3M stripping wheel to take off the tape residue. Apparently this makes the job much easier. Not sure about the Outdoorsman sticker though.

Yes i had some fun with Paint. Got 3 new picture now... Damn it make it even harder to decide, lol. I will had them in the original post.


I'll try to find the 3M stripping wheel. What is it exactly? Is it some kind of pad for a buffer?

Fits on your drill. Check out this video to see one in action. Do a Google search to find the best price. I think mine was around $20 (shipping included).
