So this may sound strange, but I really like the look of how blocky the 5th gen badges are so I'll be swapping all the fender/door/tailgate lettered badges over to the 5th gen style black badges.

I know the 5th gen rams head (grill and tailgate) are a different overall shape, but does anyone know if there is a 5th gen style ram head that fits the 4th gen?

Someone on here installed a 5th gen tailgate on a 4th gen truck and it didn’t seem to hard. You can try to find that thread..

Today I saw a Silverado with Rebel badges. Just shook my head.

Damn hillbillies. :D
Can't take us nowhere...

But in all seriousness, swapping out the tailgate just to get the badge sounds a little backwards to me, albeit still technically a valid answer.

I'm really just hoping to find a ready made solution, and I'm really kinda surprised that this is as challenging as it is.

I didn't assume I was the only person out here looking for a 4/5 badge swap kit or something. I know there have to be others looking for something similar, right?

Was thinking the same thing. If you have one, or know someone with one. There few on thingverse or other sites you can print. Or make up your own.
Just print with ASA or high temp filament, coat it.

I have many printers. Now a days, they are relatively cheap. As long as you are careful, and learn.
Easy to use. Just don't want to burn your house or worse.
