Pic 2. Pic 1 looks like a red letter "i" which reminds me of the international harvester symbol.

I'd just put the Hurst one on the front if anything.

I'm a big fan of the badgeless look. Its cleaner. Badges detract from the aesthetics of whatever theyre on for the most part in my opinion.

I DO want to find a period correct v-6 badge to put on my twin turbod LS caprice wagon though. Opposite of your 5.0 badge lol.

I might be putting centrifugal supercharger on the ranger.

The 5.0 badge is period correct....
Just not vehicle correct.

That would be one hell of a ride. I just hate how much those kits cost -_- they're a lot of money for half of a turbo that's driven by a belt lol. I'm over simplifying but still.

But yeah the badges, slap the Hurst one on the front up high like pic #4 and leave the 5.0 off. The square rangers look really good down the sides, it would be a shame to muddy it up with badges. Plus, sleeper points. Sleeper points are big.

If it was me, it would be hard to resist advertising the 5.0 too, but Blmpkn has a good point about sleeper ...points.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Subtlety is key. But in the grill or on the tailgate with the Hurst badge and the 5.0 on the fenders

The kit Im looking at getting was a dealer option in that time period.

It sounds nothing like a sleeper...... everyone knows its packing some shit just at idle...

Might as well put the 5.0 on the fender. Otherwise, every time you start it up, somebody will ask what's under the hood. :icon_hornsup:
Carry on then...
I'm jealous.
