Just go slow and if you wear the disc too thin use caution it is molded around a metal disc. Won't hurt the paint when done right. Takes care of the sticky left behind too. Then wipe it down with rapid remover or similar product. Happy Jeepin!

Wranglin4Life I guess I will give the heat gun a try and see what happens and then get the eraser wheel if needed.

lindel All I had was the standard TJ lettering. I peeled all of it off with a thumbnail until I could get a big enough piece to pull the whole thing off.

Cleaned it with alcohol to get the residue off, then put the new lettering on.

And be glad it wasn't them splash graphics. Mine were on for ~10 years, then got pulled off. 9 years later, you can see a sheen where they were, but it's not bad at all. Way better than leaving em, though I like the purple hood pinstriping. =)

AAAAAgh!!! Kill it with fire!!!

Seriously though +1 on the heat gun and eraser wheel.

krisbman Either a heat gun or an eraser wheel will pull them off. If they've been on there for a grip an eraser wheel will probably be the best bet.

sandnsaltwater A local body shop should be able to do it for you. Should not be much...I had the dealer take mine off. They just put a heat gun on them and peeled them off. Good Luck!
