Made my own 4.7L badge

I saw a thread about this a few months back. I think the 4.7L badge is only avail in Europe or something. I liked the idea and decided to try it myself. I got the numbers/letters from Autozone .99 each, used one of those stick on laser levels. Took about 20 minutes. I like the outcome, just hope they dont fly off in the car wash.

What do you guys think of it?? My first MOD!

I think it looks good.
The other way is to buy the 3.7 badge and 4X4 badge from a Liberty and mix-n-match as required.
I suspect your approach was about one tenth the cost of the Jeep parts though.

Looks good but, I think the "Dot" should be smaller. Just my $0.02.

Looks good! I agree about the dot too but overall looks very factory-like. I like your hitch step/rear guard too, I always wondered what one of those would look like on a Commander.
