Why do you/others Debadge?

Just wondering why and who likes to debadge and what their reasoning for it is. Some people take the ram off the hood and the dodge off the back and everything. Others like a complete stock look. I wanna hear both sides of the story.

I like a happy medium. I like most emblems, some that I dont like or I think dont belong there I remove, but will never remove all of them. I have hood and trunk badges, but no side badges.

IMO the car looks too plain without any badges.

Lol i think everyone will know what an intrepid is even if you debage it. Out of all the second gens i think its the best seller, as i see one every 2 minutes or less on the road. I like my lhs though as the only badges on it are LHS on the sides of the door and nothing else besides the chrysler logo on the front and back. I've been pulled over a couple of times and the cops ask what kinda car it is though.

See, I totally disagree with debagding so people don't know what model of the car that you're driving. That is a typical ricer trick. I am totally debadged because I love the clean look. I even took off the door moldings and pin stripes and I love it.

Now I'll agree that some trunk badging could be fine, but the sides of the car look so much better without any crap on it.

Personally, I think just having "Intrepid" on the trunk lid is enough badging. Im not a fan of the "Dodge" on the doors on the 98-01, and I've seen too many Treps without the hood emblem so it looks kinda tacky when its there lol.

EDIT: Debadging is almost required when the chrome in the badges peels off, leaving the letters the color of dried glue.

That's why I first debadged. I had new badges in hand and then before I put them on I stepped back and the decision was easy to leave them off, I've never looked back.

I need to throw the INTREPID back on the trunk lid because you can see where it faded around it, but those letters were peeling really bad.

I think it just looks cleaner without all the badging on the cars. I think just having "intrepid" on the back is good looking too, but from factory with "dodge" and the trim level on the back, I think it gets a to be a bit much
