I have two options: A. on the door which is similar placement as the Citadel emblem; or B. on the fender.
Before I make permanent, which do you prefer? (Sorry pics are not the best)
Thanks for your input!
I too just picked one up, but I got the same one they used on the 2004-2009 Durango. I plan to put it on the tailgate under my "Citadel" emblem. I'd consider putting it on the side if I wanted more stoplight challengers, but this thing is (currently) pretty gutless from a dead stop compared to my 2005.
I was also wondering why they would leave the Hemi badge off, and if I had to guess they are looking ahead and realizing that eventually EPA numbers and public demand will lead to a decline in V8 demand and practicality. When was the last time you saw a Hemi commercial? I have to suspect you'll see more beefy V6's since many are up over 300HP already. Perhaps they'll preserve the Hemi name in the form of a Hemi V6, since Hemi refers to hemispherical combustion chambers, not necessarily the V8 that usually comes to mind. I predict that the Hemi 5.7 will be history by 2015, and you may only see 6.1L+ Hemi's in the SRT line. And maybe a Hemi V6.
