^^ at least those examples were probably just trying to be funny - seems some people here actually worry about a badge.

Seems like:

* If you have a Limited or above model with chrome, people want to de-chrome them.

* If you have a Laredo or X without chrome, people want to add chrome.

* If you have a model with lots of badging, people want to de-badge them.

* If you have a model with minimal badging, people want to add badges.

* If you have 20" wheels, people want the 18" off-road wheels.

* If you have 18" wheels, people want the 20" wheels.

I guess this is "customizing" in the 2010's...

In the "old days" we added fuzzy dice to the mirrors, side exhausts, wide tires, ladder racks, air shocks and jacked the rear-end in the air. Flares, flames, moonies, and on it went.

The more things change, the more they stay the same for us motorheads...

Ain't that the truth. I never understood the whole "blackout" craze. No thanks.

I like black wheels and tint. But to darken your only visible safety device for when it is dark (black out tail and head lights) is just dumb. Don't see why you want to decrease your visibility. Oh well. I only debadge the dealership name typically. I may add a trail rated badge to the passenger side.

I have a Laredo X with Off Road Adventure II. the package added:
  • Delete Rear Tow Hook
  • Front Suspension Skid Plate
  • Fuel Tank Skid Plate Shield
  • Hill Descent Control
  • P265/60R18 OWL All Season On/Off-Road Tires
  • Quadra-Trac II® 4WD System
  • Selec-Terrain™ System
  • Skid Plate Group
  • Tow Hooks
  • "Trail Rated" Badge
  • Transfer Case Skid Plate Shield
  • Underbody Skid Plate
However because of the horrible Michelin Latitude Tour tires you can not use it off road. IMO if you added the skid plates and upgraded to a decent tire you are more "trail rated" than my "officially trail rated" WK2. Yes I have low range, which is a good thing, because with these tires I can barely make it down wet Forest roads, and forget about hunting trail or mild off roading.


So as an owner of a trail rated Jeep I way wear you badge proudly.
