Saw somebody on here use it to cover the hole left behind from relocating the antenna.
I think it looked good done like that.

I actually noticed that I only had 1 on the driver side today. Nothing on the passenger side.

Why would you put one on your 2WD? Are you going to put Rubicon stickers on the hood, too?

That's a nice looking Jeep but
I will never understand why they sold that model.
I guess they feel the same way.

It's also not Trail Rated. It's been converted to 4x4. By that reasoning, every Sport/X with uprgraded front axle, lockers and disco should be rebadged a Rubi.

What I am lost on what you are trying to say , so let's see if this is right

My jeep that I converted to a sport does not get a badge for what reason ( even though I did more to it then when you buy a sport or a Sahara

And if somebody took a sport and put Dana 44's front and rear with lockers and a rubi case is not a rubicon ( sorry I don't count the swaybar since it really is a so so item )

Does this sound about right

"Trail Rated" is just a marketing scheme. Don't be proud if your Jeep says "Trail Rated", it just means you paid a bit more of a premium.

Anyways, if you think its trail rated, buy a badge and put it on. Boom, done.

We could take this as long as there is a back way out.
