Didn't remove it, I masked it off with tape and newspaper, sanded it down a little bit and gave it a couple coats. Much easier and worked great. Kind of scarey to begin with but very happy I did it, really cleaned it up, I wish I took before pictures so u could see the difference. As for the sticker, I don't have an answer for you. Could be original or put on by the previous owner, no idea!

Rustoleum spray on bedliner. comes in a can. I took the hood latches, the milk jugs, and the mirrors off to spray them. left the fender flares on and the door handles on and just masked them off.

super easy, take your time masking everything off you'll be fine.

Found my front pinion is loose AGAIN and now the pinion seal is leaking...Time to make an appointment to take it back to 4WP and have them fix it, on their dime, since it has not even been 7 months since the did a full master install kit repair on it for same thing.
