Question Help with emblem placement

Hello all - I recently had some body work done on my liftgate (got rear-ended. again.) and the shop removed my emblems to do the body work and then replaced them. Thing is, they did a crappy job and they are waaaaay off. At least 2 inches higher than where they should be.
They've agreed to re-do it, and I thought I would help them do it properly by asking for some assistance with measurements that i can supply them so they put em back in the right spot!
Wondering if anyone has a moment to provide some measurements/guide for the correct positioning. I'm attaching a pic with what I think i would need - the exact measurements for the 2 green dots from the liftgate - the left-most edge of the 4x4 and the left-most edge of the trailhawk emblem (in my case, blackhawk) in relation to the liftgate - ie. numbers 1,2,3,4.
I *think* this is the way to get the info - if anyone has better ideas let me know - and thank you in advance!

edit: just thought of something: @JeepCares - is there a template provided by FCA to be used for this purpose? some placement guide document or something? TIA

4X4 is 1.75" in from the left edge of the gate, and 3.25" up from the bottom of the gate

Trailhawk is 1.75" in from the right edge of the gate, and the bottom, center point is 2.5" up from the bottom edge of the gate

@ddh3 thank you that's very helpful.

Just to be super clear on which exact points we're talking about I'm attaching new pics here

- for the Trailhawk measurements you're saying that point #1 (on my new pic) is 1.75" in from the right edge of the gate and point #2 (on the new pic) is 2.5" up from bottom of gate correct?

- and the 4x4 point #1 (on the new pic) is 1.75" in from left edge and the SAME point is 3.25 up from the gate, or a different point on the 4x4?

TIA!

I thought it might be easier just to measure the distance from the edges of the gate to the edges of the emblems, without including the measurement of the emblems themselves. Actually, I measured to the bottom of the first 4, from the bottom edge of the gate in the 4X4 emblem, and point #1 for the edge of the first 4 to the left edge of the gate; and you are correct on the TH: the center of the bottom point, and right edge.

You as well. When they reapply the emblems, make sure they use isopropyl alcohol on the painted area where the emblems will be placed. This will remove any wax from the paint and enable the tape to stick.
