I put the same black Jeep emblems on mine, too....started by replacing the one on the grill & liked it so much that I wanted them on the sides as well. But I still have my Sport & Wrangler decals on it.....for now. Now that I see yours without the decals, it's making me want to remove mine

in2life53 Peeled the Sport and Wrangler decals off with fingernail , cleaned it up with Goo Gone, washed it up and put a good layer of wax on it.... Job done. I really like the clean look!

Any recommendations for getting the swirls/scratches out?
Get some nice microfiber cloths and try meguirs scratch-X (which you already mentioned). It's worked wonders for me with other vehicles and even headlights. Just make sure the area is BUTT CLEAN before you start.

KMM Fingernail and goo gone worked perfectly for me. Hate dealer stickers.

Sylverion I just did this last night with my 2013. I bought Goof Off from Lowes and it cut all the residue off instantly.
03-29-2013 01:02 PM
Jeeps_and_Boats Do the decals get stuck on harder as time goes on? I'm guessing yes.
03-29-2013 11:45 AM
DarthGromit bought my 2010 used couple months ago, when i took the Wrangler and Sport decals off, the paint matched fine, no fade or anything or markers around it. i did the heat/peel/goo gone method, worked fine. just dont get in a big hurry.
03-29-2013 11:09 AM
rickyshaun I also was facing this problem. I was willing to remove the residue from my car. I was afraid that removal of it with the razor may not effect the paint. I visited here and the representative told me the same thing. I used the petrol and the residue was removed.

pamela50 Use the hair drier and then apply thinner, spirit or the petrol for the removal of residue. I have been trying this method for number of years. Try and tell.
12-13-2012 12:21 PM
snochick Granted I did it in the summer time but I just park in the sun for a bit then peel off with my fingernail. Nothing special was needed for the adhesive. Heck I think I used windex. Now that stupid dealer decal on the back, that one was a pain.
12-13-2012 12:11 PM
TheKid23 I think I've seen the spray. I like putting a little bit on a shop towel instead of spraying directly on though. Either way works!
12-13-2012 11:47 AM
Timberline ^^ Yup, that's the stuff but mine was in an aerosol spray can. Maybe they don't make it as a spray anymore.

Timberline Use the hair dryer method or for real stubborn decals I use a 3M product in a red and white can that you just spray and it gets rid of all that nasty glue residue.

I do the same with the dealer sticker. I removed that the day after I brought the Jeep home.

I still have the side decals on though. I'd like to at least remove the Sport decal.

Amen... They didn't pay me to advertize for them so it all comes off... even that new spare tire cover they nicely painted their name around "Jeep" came right off.

Mine had all its side decals gone from the previous owner. Looks clean and neat. The only thing on it is the one drivers side Trail Rated coin.

BillyPete I used a rag with a small amount of acetone to remove the sticker glue off, one swipe and it was clean. No paint or shine damage either.

Unlike the good old days when dealers would pop rivet their name to the trunk lid, those decals come off easily when you heat them up for a minute with a hair dryer. Then just start at a corner and they peel right off. Any adhesive residue cleans up with something like Goo Gone.

Orange Peel Turtle Wax makes a product called "Label & Adhesive Remover" I know......it's such an original name, but it works very well in getting the sticker glue off. So fast that you better be prepared to wipe with a cloth when you spray it on.

I've always used gasoline as a makeshift solvent when in a pinch. It'll remove just about everything except the paint.

VaderJK12 I have not removed any decals yet, bought the Jeep back in March, if I were to remove the "sport" decal will there be a difference in color? I'm not sure if over a period of time the paint fades, etc.

Dear you can use the hair drier for removal of the decals. The heat of hair drier will make it possible to remove these, but be careful while pealing off, use the nails to remove and remove them gradually from one corner. wish you good luck dear.

NWranglerS Thinking about removing the sport sticker from the side of my jeep and keeping the wrangler sticker, or possibly removing both all together. Has anyone done this and kept it all blank, or are you usually adding your own sticker. Would like to put my own sticker on but haven't come across one yet.

On a side note a bunch of glue was left on the rear or my jeep from where the dealer put their sticker.. Goo gone took it right off

I left mine in the sun for a couple of hours, peeled SLOWLY from one corner. Decals came off nicely in one piece. I bought Turtle Wax Label and Adhesive Remover. Sprayed it on the adhesive. It was amazing. Just disolved the adhesive, and I wiped with a cloth. Came right off. Couldn't have been easier. That stuff is great.
