Is this Authentic or not ?




Brickell Motors in Miami Florida has this WK for sale and in the photos of the car I found this and I have not seen this on a Jeep before. Looks like a Dodge Ram emblem to me.

Can anyone tell me if this badge belongs on a Jeep or not ?

It looks like a MOPAR hemi badge to me, possibly from a Ram. But they were never put on Jeeps.

Someone did some re-badging on that Jeep....the Trail Rated badge is on the tailgate instead of on the driver's side fender where it should be.

Nice color though...the dark blue looks good on WKs.

It should also have a Limited badge on the back as well. Kinda spooky. It'd be interesting to pop the hood and see what's inside.

That is a Ram badge, verified it today by a Ram at work.

Looks like a really bad glue job on the badge too. I'd stay away.
