The local plasma cutting place finally got a hold of me to make the raised metal door emblems for me so, I've gotta decide on what exactly I want to put. For some reason i've been really debating about going with just "Dakota R/T" My orginal plan was just to do "5.9 R/T". For some reason, I think the longer emblem would look better than a short one on the side of the door. For the tailgate, I'll still go with the "5.9 R/T" on the back right side.Any thoughts or other ideas? The emblems will be raised up around 1/4'' inch or a little less and will be polished up.

1/4" seems a little bulky, going with stainless?

I'm pretty set on going with Dakota R/T on the doors and 5.9 R/T on the tailgate. Got a few other plans up my sleeve for the truck, but no more info or pictures will be posted until It's done and complete at the end of spring :) For the price, it varies but I was quoted at 40 bucks a set back in summer.

how are you going to finish up the emblems after they're cut? Plasma cutting normally leaves some nasty edges with thicker metal

I'll polish them up myself. The sample they showed me look pretty good, but yes I will have to clean them up some before I put them on the truck. I'll use some thing 3M tape to hold them on as well.

I think Dakota R/T on the doors

then 5.9 R/T on the back would look best.

maybe even DAKOTA 5.9 on the door?

I wanted to put DURANGO 5.9 on the Durango. I actually found it online to buy similar emblems but they cost too much
