Default Debadge Connundrum

So I've decided it's time to ditch the badges but I literally can't decide on the level of the debadge. I do like the clean look like Brad12k but I also like the Hemi badge left like Bordin. So please help me decide.

With a little photoshop magic here are my choices. Sorry not the greatest pics but you get the idea.

RAM 1500 Gone



1500 and Hemi Gone



Nuke it all or keep the Hemi badge?

I personally like the badges but IMO, I say leave the HEMI badge and lose the rest.

Like Cajun, I like the badges. Especially on my truck because it is an SLT with chrome door handles and chrome bumpers. With that being said, I like the Sports when they are de-badged because they have the body color handles and bumpers, but I would definately keep the Hemi badge unless you are looking for more of the sleeper look!!

The skin on my fingers is only growing back now from doing this. Lotsa glue to peel off Man, but well worth it.
I like the "Clean Look" and that's why I did it.
To each his own, they're nice trucks no matter what you do.

Take them all off. The clean look is the way to go.

Remove them, with your exhaust they will know its a Hemi and I have yet to have someone come up to me and say "is this a Dodge" their is around 14 ram head and badges so a few off is just a little less NASCAR

Get rid of them all. I did and I have had so many compliments about the way my truck looks now.

I have been giving this some serious thought recently also and I have to agree with Cajun on this...leave the hemi badge the side. It just looks too "nekid" without it

Well even though the votes say "nekid" I left the Hemi badge on.

I didn't document anything as I think this topic has been well covered and I'll shoot some pics tomorrow in the daylight. What started as an adventure turned out to be one of the easiest mods I've done. I read through Brad12k's post on his debadge adventure and thought I had learned from his mistakes.....wrong!!!! I did....emphasis on DID have a roll of gaffers tape left over from my band days and set out to tackle this thinking I had it all ready to go. I sawed the badges off with ease and then went looking for my gaffers tape. Well it's not where it should have been and I find out my 6 year old used the rest of it to decorate his brothers power wheel jeep! Knowing the only place I can get gaffers tape is the music store 45 minutes away I said the hell with it and tried to tackle the sticky with goo b gone. An hour later under the 32 C / 90 F sun I had the R and half the A removed. I said screw it and headed into town for an eraser wheel. Now for my fellow Canucks don't go into Napa, Bumper to Bumper, Canuck Tire or any other auto parts place and ask for a 3M eraser wheel as everyone will look at you like your on crack. What your after is a pinstripe removal wheel. Everyone has them except Canuck Tire! Within 15 minutes of being home I had the drivers side done, buffed and waxed. It took a total of 20 minutes to debadge the passenger side from start to finish.

The key with the eraser wheel is let it work. Cut the badges, hit it with the eraser wheel, clean up with the goo b gone, hit it with your favorite wax, buff DONE!

Now the funny part is I don't know if I like it!!!! I'm going to have to get used to it, but it does bring a smile to my face knowing I don't have to detail around those damn letters ever again!!!!

Just for the resident pic junkies (Me included) here is a photoshop debadge to hold you over until I post fresh pics tomorrow. Oh and I'll have another little detailing review as well
