Chrome Grill Overlay Removal

I've got a chrome overlay that I want to remove. Anyone done this before?
Any tips?

If it just sticks on like most things like that you will just have to peel slowly and use heat if you can to loosen the glue's hold. Then clean it up with some goo gone or wd40 or whatever you have layin around to clean up glue stuff. I've never taken off one of these but several emblems and rocker gaurds for example and they all work the same.

Go online and find the installation instructions, then do the reverse.

Took mine off within a few months of getting my Jeep. Been a few years - so I could be off a little, but there were some body clips (christmas trees) along the top (3 or 4 I think) and 2 more on the bottom. I don't recall any actual screws. And no glue or tape at all. Took out the clips and removed the overlay. Very easy.

Mine just snapped right in, or is it like a sticker that covers the whole grill.

It's a "snap on" type. Really haven't looked at it too closely yet to see what kind of fasteners it has, but seems easy. It's good to get some insight and a confidence boost before ripping the front of your Jeep off.

Ok, yea just grab and pull them out. Mine didn't have any fasteners whatsoever. Good luck trying to get rid of them I havent been able to give mine away in three months.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
