Default Re-Badge?

I just picked up some challenger badges thinking they would look good here.

Also thinking of putting my Hemi badges back on but I don't want to put them back where they were, thinking of this spot on the door.

Stuck em with some blue tape long enough to snap pics so I can look at it for a few days and think about it.

What say you? Anyone have any better ideas on where these should go?

I am NOT a fan of upbadging.

Unless you're running a 6.1L motor, then I personally think it's in the same realm as fart cans, huge spoilers, and people who talk at the theater. Why would you put SRT8 badges on it and keep the 5.7L badge? You may was well throw a longhorn and laramie badge on it while you're at it. I am all for brand loyalty. but don't put anything on the truck unless that's what's IN the truck.

I saw that coming.

You do know the challenger SRT8 is a 5.7L Hemi right?

Also Rams have been produced as SRT10 but thats precisely why I didn't buy those badges, because I dont have a 10 cylinder engine.

The SRT's typically don't include anything that different, you are talking about premium sound (I have the Alpine upgrade) and stripes (no thanks) and on the new models they get the big brakes (Really want some Brembo's for mine)

So, I disagree about it being "false advertising"

SRT-8 used the 6.1 and now 6.4 HEMI. It's more then just brakes as well. I would keep the truck debadged, looks cleaner IMO.

to my point... from the interwebz....

"This 5.7L HEMI SRT8 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Custom Truck is set to blow the doors off your competition on the street, strip, or track. This HEMI powered truck is ready to go head to head with any classic muscle car or hotrod with high performance features like a Speedfactory Performance engine calibration, suspension upgrades, enhanced body styling, Rhino bed-liner and upgraded interior appointments."

So the differences between that truck and mine are as follows...

1. engine calibration. lol ok.
2. suspension upgrades. oh noes! I'm a poser!
3. enhanced body styling.!!!
4. Rhino Liner. I have stupid Mopar drop in.
5. Upgraded Interior.

I don't see a problem with putting on an SRT8 badge by I guess I must be in the minority.

There isnt a problem with putting the badge on your truck, you obviously want to. If you like it then that's all that matters. I'm confused since when was there a srt8 ram?

It's YOUR truck, have it the way YOU want it! You don't need any one's approval. You don't need to defend your likes.

That's just a sales blurb on a website advertising a SpeedFactory product. No emblem there either.

That said i would get the emblem from a SRT GC since they are larger and throw that on the tailgate. That will be more viewable to onlookers than the side of the hood.

No such thing, trust me, a srt is a 6.1 or 6.4, never has been a 5.7 srt. Are you talking about a r/t , and its not available in the quad only the reg. cab.

Personally, I prefer no badges. It's nobody else's business what you have or do not have under the hood. However, as others have stated, it's your truck so my opinion (or anyone else's) doesn't mean squat. But if you want to go with a badge, I would recommend you try only one and put it on the side of the hood "scoop" (not so much a scoop as a nice rise in the middle of the hood) and see what that looks like. Nice thing about the tape is you can try before you buy.
