X2, that's what I did, worked perfect. I used the goo-gone, it worked, but it took a while. Also I used a heat gun and pried them off with my fingernail..

Abnormal-JK Zippo lighter fluid works better than Goo Gone, and leaves no residue.

chisox711 Blow dryer and dental floss. Super easy to take off. goo gone didnt take the residue off mine very well. Ended up benefiting me because it gave me a reference for where to put the new logo. Looks much better.

Abnormal-JK Wish I'da thought of that...

Gewch Maybe I should put the new one on like this...

So, just saying... it's worth a try.

PS And it is slightly original, haha.

This?

I have almost purchased the new badge but concerned that I won't get it lined up as perfect as it is now (I have severe OCD). Because of this I am thinking of going the plasti-dip route...

i don't think the jeep will start without the badge...

fishin shane WD 40 uses # 666 adhesive remover. Plus u can hit several other things on your wagon w/ it.
So save ur $$ on the Goo Off.
05-17-2013 07:14 PM
PhotoWrangler I've heard that dental floss works too.

You really can't remove the old one to paint, and put back on without adding new foam sticky back, and taping the thing off would be a job in itself.
And i could mess it up with a big fat run...

By far, the easiest thing I have done to my jeep... second perhaps to ripping the carpet out and pulling the drain plugs.

legitposter Heat gun, fishing line, micrfiber towel+adhesive remover for cleanup.

Strokerswild When I did mine, I found that WD40 did the best job of getting the leftover adhesive off, much better than Goo Gone.

That glue is nasty stuff....

Yes and after taking off the tape with goo-off make sure you apply a coat of wax to protect it.

Classical guitar strings work too (the nylon ones) if you don't want to buy a spool of fishing line. FWIW.

TrueBlueJK Good thing about plastidip is you can peel it off when you get sick of it.
05-17-2013 01:28 PM
Justin_Griffith I would rather purchase a new one than paint the old one.
05-17-2013 01:07 PM
Bayouwolf

I simply don't want mine to look like anyone else.

I figure being an original is worth more than a measly $2 savings.

Because I'm not the most patient person and i couldnt stand waiting there watching paint dry, and i also dont want to have to redo it
