how many of you guys removed your side stickers and how did you do it?

Been looking at the Sahara sticker on the side of my jeep and thinking it would look better with out.

How many of you guys have done this? How did you do it?

Here a pic for looking

The Very first thing I did!! Does not match the Deep Cherry Red at all. The decal pealed right off no heat needed.

Good choice on color BTW!!

I took the Sahara off within the first hour of ownership. I am debating ordering the rubicon style Sahara for the hood but I am still on the fence about that. The sticker pealed off easily.

Side stickers peeled right off and cleaned up with glass cleaner. That hideous hood sticker on my new altitude was a miserable bastard to remove. The sticker actually peeled right off. The glue on the other hand took me about 3 hours to remove without damaging the finish using 3m adhesive remover and elbow grease. It's completely debadged now including the jeep letters on the grill. Love the look without all the advertising.

Well, in my neck of the woods you can get by. My brother is a Cop and he says that you really only have to worry about the State Troopers. I have however i mounted mirrors onto my vents which makes me legal..

Removing all of the stickers was the first thing I did when I brought ours home. I didn't have it in the shop ten minutes before the heat gun came out and the decals came off.

I removed all of them especially the Black Opps stickers. Yuck!

Heat gun slowly bathed over the sticker, start an edge with finger nail and stay just ahead of where the decal is releasing from the sheet metal with the heat gun. Afterwards a quick wipe with some adhesive remover (hardly any residue left behind) and then an application of hand glaze (polish).

Mike.

I used a razor blade and VERY carefully removed every side sticker. Then replaced with Wounded Warrior Project sticker on one side and Zombie Outbreak Response sticker on the other. Military green color Jeep and matte black stickers. Looks pretty good.

You can use a hair dryer or just use direct sun for a few minutes, and finger nails. They come off real easy either way.
