twalk482 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 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.

JeepWranglerNation 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..

Fishing line is no good. You need something more abrasive. Try dental floss.

Wow does that look clean ! I love the look !

pkmcd99 Sounds crazy but this works.and is not harmful to paint. Pull from top with fingers slowly puting them under as it pulls away from the adhesive. It will come off, your paint and clear will be untouched. Using a razr to cut foam back adhesive on badge side will help it detatch when you do the above also.

strider_mt2k I like my TR badge so much that I put a second one where Sonny put his!
I did de-sticker though.

cheap4tw FYI

Jeep Wranglers with a soft top would make a terrible zombie outbreak response vehicle. With the hard top it's acceptable.

Zombies would rip apart a soft top!

You can see where I relocated it to the rear of the jeep, just under the handle.

That is exactly what I did. No dental floss. Just used my fingers to remove it. If you heat it up real good, you can take it right off with your hands and then stick it right away on any other location that you choose.

Casotakar1229 honestly, I wouldn't feel to safe around you during a zombie apocalypse if you are afraid of removing the trail rated badge haha. good luck, it's one of the most simple "mods" you can do.

+1 and patience. Removed badges from my motorcycle by being patient, heating the badge throughly (more than one time) and using some fishing line. like them on the rubi
