    I am kinda mixed on the hood decals whether its "Wrangler", "Rubicon" and what not.

    I think on some colors it looks good, while some do not.

    What do you all think?

    (This isn't to bash anyone who currently has them on their rig), Just wanted an overall assumption. Perhaps a poll would have been better, but I like reasonings too! :)

    I love them. I like on older Jeeps when people put the name, but I am not willing to pull my Rubicon stickers and replace it with Marshmallow.

    I am apparently a more is better kind of girl. It is just one more thing to personalize the Jeep. (My love of stuff like that drives my brother INSANE so added bonus.)

    I also just don't take it all that seriously as "the best, most capable rig ever," so my plates are MALL R8D, and there are marshmallows hanging from my mirror. I think Jeeps should be fun.

    Honestly, I think I'm going to pull the Rubicon off when i get mine. Probably replace the jeep and the trail rated badge with the silver versions versus the red tinted version. (assuming I have to).

    Im a less is more.

    If Paragon still existed in PA, I'd replace Rubicon with Paragon... Rausch Creek just isn't as much fun as Paragon nor as cool along the side of the hood :)

    I love them and agree with Michelle that Jeeps should be fun. One of the best platforms to customize in any direction you want to take.

    I really like the current Rubicon decals. To the extent that the hood looks bare without it to me. And I've never thought that before until the JL. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I thought about getting one (something) when I first bought it, but since then I had my entire front end clear bra'd and don't wanna mess that up but adding a decal on it, especially when I probably couldn't make it straight anyway, lol.. (Grill, hood, and around the windshield are protected now)....no rocks or bugs anymore. Just wipe it off once you get back home.

    I have something on order from @pixeldecals related to Marshmallow, but it isn't the hood decal. :)

    Some are ok but personally don't like them. That's why I took ALL decals of my Rubicon

    I REALLY like the Rubicon on the JL. Very bold and the black lettering with red outline on the Punk's is very striking to me.

    I personally really like the Moab decal on Mojito! This picture doesn't do it justice, but I like the matte-black letters with glossy-black outline :like:

    Generally speaking hood decals and faux vents bug the hell out of me. But not on the Rubicon. I won’t start a war by naming some of the other decals that came with Jeep special editions (and no, I’m not talking about Moabs)

    By "faux vents" are you talking about the ones on the hood or the ones on the side. Just curious...
