Cummins Hub Cap Logo!

This is the second part of what appears to be a 3 part series (Minus -1) on removing “Ram” Logos, and replacing them with Cummins logos. (I have debadged my truck, which unofficially, was modification #1.) My original reasoning was because I’m going for the whole “Silver and Black theme”, with a reduction in gaudy chrome badges, (Obviously, chrome Cummins badges don’t fit into my “Gaudy” filter!) That is because I’m not particularly “dissatisfied” with Dodge, but I AM particularly pleased with the Cummins aspect of my truck, which should kind of help you understand where I’m coming from with these mods. Clear as mud?
Here we go!

If you decided to debadge your truck, and NOT do the front grille mod,
(SHAME ON YOU!) You will have 2 Cummins badges to work with. If you DID do the front grille mod, you have one left over badge.

Either way, all is not lost!
The dealer has plenty of logos for you. The part # for the 2007 Cummins "C" is 55078116AA. You could probably also use the 2005 Cummins "C".
My Dealer wanted $20.00 each for these. I’m hoping your dealer is cheaper, but on the bright side, so far, no problems with mods for warranty. :Fingers crossed:

Geez! I’m getting a little windy here, so let’s get to the actual mod, shall we?

OK. The very first step is to remove all your hub caps. Turn them over, so you can see the inside of them. Note that at the center of the cap there is a protrusion of plastic.


This needs to be removed, a couple of smacks with a hammer does the trick.


Next, we are going to use this reference to transpose a “Center” to the outside of the hub.
Take a soldering iron with a pointed tip, and with it fully heated, melt through the inside mark, until it burns through on the outside. Doesn’t have to burn through much, an 1/8” hole is great plenty.



When you are done, you should have a Ram head with a “Bull’s-eye” hole clearly visible.




After you have treated all 4 hub caps to the same procedure, it’s time to move on to prepping the “Cummins” “C”.

In order to shorten this tech article, please refer to this article for how to prep your “C”.
Pay close attention to how to separate the “turbo charged" portion of the logo.


https://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/te...rill-logo.html

In this pic, I show the Ram head being drilled out, but the actual technique was to use my feet to hold the hubcap while drilling. The hole saw you use to completely remove the Ram head is 2 1/2".



When you are done, it should look like this:



It’s not really important if the hole you drilled is perfectly centered, what is important, is that there is NO remainder of the Ram’s head. A flat surface is what you are after. If your hole is a little off center, remove the protruding Ram horn so you have a flat surface.




Just a shot of the Ram head that was removed…



Next, we cut a 3 ľ” hole, I decided on plastic, because it’s easy to work with, if all you have is metal, you could do that too, And actually come up with some custom variations of this modification. Do not think you are limited by what I did. Your ONLY limitation is your imagination!
Here is my piece:




After some trimming of “Plastic Burrs”, it will fit nicely.



Scuff the plastic (Or metal) pieces for paint adhesion.




OK. Admittedly, I painted my pieces Black BEFORE filling in the Center hole…
Live and learn… BTW, I used a hot Glue gun to fill in the center hole. Worked great!


I would recommend you fill in the center hole before painting your pieces… On with the article…

This is the paint I used,. Honestly, if you do one coat, even if it’s heavy, your results will be better than mine. In other words, a touch up coat with this paint is difficult.




Ok, once the paint is dry, it’s time to glue the new piece to the hub.
My choice was RTV, Black. Run a bead along the ledge on the hub cap.





Place the new piece on the hub cap, using a light “Rotate and grind” motion.
All 4 of these are done.



Flip the hub over and ensure the RTV has purchase on both the hub and the cut out piece.
Just use your finger to ensure the RTV sealsto the hub and to your new piece.

No Pic… (I was drinkin’… SUE me!!)


Anyhooo.. let’s move on to the Cool part of attaching the “C” logo!! It looks like this when it’s done.



OK on the truck it looks like this:



Disregard the truck cover…

OHHH, QUIT!! You guys! I'm Blushing!

ok. whatever.

Seriously, thanks for the props.

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind all that, if you Debadged and then did my grille mod, then this will cost you $60 Bucks, if you have both of your debadged Cummins logos, then its only $40 Bucks.

Just sayin'...

But then again, I don't CARE!! My truck is ORIGINAL and COOL!

Want your's to be?

Thanks you guys!
I edited my post to include the right size hole saws, and I see now I also forgot to include the part number for the Cummins "C", Guess I'll go back and put that in!

You could do this with stock tires and wheels. Those are stock hub caps. :thumbsup

Hub cover snap on ?

Wildcat,

Did your stock hub covers snap right onto the Cragar wheels or did you have to make a mod?
