I did the hair dryer on one side and it did make the decal come off easy but left all the glue behind which was still hard to get off. The other side I just tried to remove with my finger nails. It was harder to start but once it did start most of the glue came off with the decal making clean-up a lot easier. Cleaned it good and then waxed the area with paste wax to blend in the shiny spot with the rest of the fender

Mine peeled off most easily with just my fingernails. The side in the sun left the adhesive, but goof-off took care of that.

I just did this to mine about two weeks ago. I used a hair dryer to soften the decal and glue then just pulled them off. I then used the hair dryer to soften the glue again and used goo gone with a paper towel to rub the rest of the glue off.

I personally think they look great without the all the stickers. I removed mine the day I bought the Jeep.

I just peeled them off. Then got goo-gone and it came right off. I tried other things like alcohol and fingernail polish remover. Only the good gone worked. Believe it or not a friend told me windex worked. I didn't try it though.

I have yet to do mine. Only one I removed so far was the dealership sticker on the back. I think I may remove the "Sport" and "Unlimited" and just keep the "Wrangler". Or take all three off.

Removed mine along with the Jeep emblem from the front on a 45-degree day using fingernails.

I would definitely remove the SPORT. I left WRANGLER on for a few more days and looked OK, but removed it anyways. It was white and was thinking of getting one in black later should I decide. But it looks good with no stickers as well.

Little bit of heat and they should peel right off, then goo gone or any other adhesive remover should clean up the excess glue in quick order. I just recently pulled mine off of my 2000 sport and I didnt have to apply any heat at all. OFC living in S. Florida means everything on the Jeep is always hot lol.

I used an old gift card. Gently scrape the decal off and then a wee bit of campstove fuel on a paper towel to get the rest othe glue off. There's not a trace of them left.

Alright guys. I just did it- peeled with fingernail- came right off- then goo gone to remove all of the sticky left behind. I like it. Removed the "SPORT" and I really like it much better. "WRANGLER" your next- so you better look out! But first I have an idea that I'm working on that involves Wonder Woman
