Sticker Removal?

Hey this may seem a silly question, but I want to remove my Sahara and wrangler stickers from the sides of my jeep. Best practice for this? Nervous about razor blade on paint action, and don't want a bunch of sticky crap everywhere. Thx for the help.

Heat gun and fingernail work good, or a nice hot day and fingernail. Then after its removed use a automotive degreaser to remove the left over adhesive. Then a nice coat of wax to shine it back up.
Unless your really experianced stay away from the razor blade.

I never used any tools besides a hair dryer and my fingernail. Heat up the sticker for 15 seconds lift with your nail and peel away. Afterward I rubbed a little goo gone on small spots of glue left and VOILA!!

Oh and a good not so harsh adhesive remover is window cleaner. But make sure it has amonia in it. wont come off as easy as the good stuff but its not as strong.

I actually just scraped the corners of my decals with a credit card until i had enough to grab with my fingers and peeled the rest off. No heat gun or anything... Whiped off with goo gone and its like they were never there

Hair dryer, thumb nail, goo gone.... Be wary of the heat gun if you value your paint. Too much heat will remove the paint and the stickers....
