I actually added a second one as an antenna delete.

I think if your going to remove all the badges and decals.. at least it could have been on the Sahara Wrangs.. because it would achieve that "euro" styling.. painted bumpers, fenders etc.. I've ssen a white JKU around town that's been done this way.. I'll have to see if I can grab a pic next time..

I actually used one to remove the Wrangler decal. An older/duller blade worked better that a new one. The new one felt like it was catching.

My JK after removal

I used heat (blow dryer), and this orange plastic tip from adhesive remover (Floss was not successful, purple fingers and it kept snapping)

... and then "relocated" the trail rated badge :-) just in case I need to prove to passengers that it is still ready for the trail, but can hide it when it annoys me

I did de-sticker though.

I vote relocation as opposed to cancellation unless there's absolutely no consideration of consolation.

Love the bottle opener!!! Badge looks good there too!!

Holy thread revival Batman!!!



My came off fairly easy with a hair dryer, but was only 2 years old. No paint discoloring or anything.

Replaced with the lighted version.

Just removed mine. I should have read this thread before I did to see the idea about relocating it right away while the glue is hot.

Now that I have it off and the glue has already cooled, is there a good way to glue it to move it a different spot? Thinking of trying gorilla glue and re-gluing it to the plastic on the inside of the tailgate.

This is the way to go. An actual heat gun will work better, but the wife's hair dyer will work in a pinch.

I'd avoid using anything as permanent as gorilla glue. Maybe try scraping off the factory adhesive and picking up some similar adhesive tape from lowes and cutting it to fit.
