So I was never crazy about Chrome on a car and I'm big on oem styling and keeping things original so I ordered my self a full set of blacked out badges off the trailhawk version ! Was also going to order the 7 grill inserts but when the dealer asked 220$ each and I need 7 I said to myself I'll stick to plastidip for this....and put aside my whole keeping with oem parts... Also I'm debating on removing the renegade name plates .

You could also look at the badges off of the Cherokee Trailhawk. They have the same exact color (anthracite gray) and are OEM factory parts. You can get the 4x4 and the Jeep badges that way.

Another idea, is to wait a model year or two until they (inevitably) come out with the Altitude version of the Renegade. It'll have blacked out badges (gloss black) all around. You can generally get badge sets from Amazon or Ebay for a few bucks.

How was taking off the badges and how did you do it?

Used a hair dryer to heat up the area then slowly pulled
Away the emblem all the left over glue was removed with a glue remover called goop off ! Then I just polished the area to make sure it's really
Clean and smooth ! Also make sure to mark the position of the old
Logos before removing them I used painters tape to box an out line of each logo to make sure they go back
In the perfect place !

How did you get them to go back on? I feel like taking them off is easy but what kind of adhesive do you use to make sure they stick?
