Front "Jeep" logo mods/pics/anything&everything

I've been searching for threads about the front "Jeep" logo to see if anyone has done anything cool or interesting and haven't found anything! Unless i'm not searching correctly...

But anywaysssss.... I want to see your front "Jeep" logos! Modded or completely removed.. whatever.

Here's mine.. going to paint over the plasti dip soon

Why? It looks great!

I removed mine, prepped, painted it black, replaced the adhesive tape, and reapplied. That was before I knew about Plasti-Dip.

From what I have read here, Plasti-Dip would have been MUCH easier. No? Does it not last?

Pulled my logo off, sanded it down and painted it satin black.
Put it back a "little different". No one has caught it yet.

Just the Jeep logo, or your entire grille?

Jeep logo, good. Grille, no.

I actually bought stock in Plasti-Dip last week, so I think that's the best bet for any Jeep mod. Stock wheels (hell, aftermarket if you can get chromies cheap), grilles, floorboards (little help MTH?), windshield brackets...

Feed me.

I have completely de-badged mine except for one little thing. I moved the trail rated badge and put it on the tailgate.

Im going to keep it all plasti dipped but paint over the "e" red then next "e" yellow then the "p" green I really like that color combination so I want to test it out and see how it will turn out.

Plasti dip is very easy! Mine has been holding up very well. I didnt even prep the emblem at all. Just got right to it after taping around it.

I think it's a little more about the vehicle being distinctive enough on its own to not require a sticker telling you that it is a Jeep Wrangler.

I removed the badge from the front as well as the stickers, but left the Rubicon decals on the hood and the Trail Rated badge and added a second TR badge to the rear gate. -an idea that I totally lifted from Sunnykk, who posted above.

A proud Jeep driver who calls it a car? Contradict much?

Normally, this would result in the death of a cute, fluffy kitten. But, your contradiction has caused a shift in the realm of the norm, so now this is happening!
