My Rubi will be here in a week or so. Some of the decals I will want to remove and the usual way is with a hair dryer to warm them up a bit. I'm wondering if I should wait a month or so since the paint is pretty new ? Is there a goof way to remove them w/o applying heat ?

I just let mine warm up in the sun then started the corners with my finger nail and they came right off. Used a little goo gone to remove the residue. Being that your jeep is so new, you should have no problems removing them.
I have removed decals from several new vehicvles typically I just pull them off, use WD40 or goobgone for the residue, and then wax the area if not the whole vehicle. On a couple of occasions like on my wifes 2011 GC I had to get the hair dryer to soften them up. I have had no problem at all with the hair dryer and the paint
Factory auto finishes these days do not dry to cure but rather cure with heat. The bake process immediately after being sprayed crosslinks the paint molecules to a complete cure when it leaves the oven. This paint would never cure without heat, it's a completely different animal than paints of the past.
I found the hairdryer helped remove the vinyl with ease but left most of the glue. On the other side I just got my finger nails under the sticker and pulled it off without heat and it pulled most of the glue off too when not heated.
