I vote tailgate 1.

And I like fender 2, but either center it under the Cherokee word horizontally or line the right edge of the decal with the right edge of the last e (pass side) & lefts on driver side. And of course, lined up vertically with the side marker.
keep in mind that the “Cherokee” is flipped on the other side, so trying to align it with one is likely going to be off on the other. I won’t be able to stand knowing they’re different, so have to pick something that works on both when identically spaced from the signal.

I really like fender 3, but understand your reluctance to put it on the OEM decal. The lines work perfectly there though, and it doesn't detract from the rest of the OEM FSJ fender aesthetic. Short of that, fender 2 is your obvious choice for the reason posted: that's the approximate relative location used on the Javelin. This is also the reason why I put my 401 emblems on the hood; there's no other appropriately vertical surface on the CJ in that general location. And as for the tailgate, I vote for option 4. Or consider dropping it down, centered below the QuadraTrac, but at the very bottom of the tailgate; maybe aligned with the license plate for up/down. The ZJ has the V8 and 5.9L emblems in this location (and remember, the ZJ was still originally designed by AMC).

Ya, they are a little different. Dilemma, hmmm. Maybe split the difference.

I really do like it in the stripe best but I just can’t put it there :shrug:

I tried that spot on the tailgate but it would need the larger decal and I just thought it was TOO much

I like behind the turn signal on the fender, but I’m not sure on the tailgate. Have you tried the bottom corner?

Man, I like fender 3 option. It looks like it belongs in the original decal!! But since that's likely a wasted vote, Fender 1. And tailgate 2 is my favourite of the tailgate options.
