Maybe warm them up with a blow dryer first....I picked mine off on a hot day, while waiting on the wife to get us ice cream. They peeled right off...

Others say that the 2010-2012 visor decals are fused on, not glued as earlier models, and recommend against trying to remove them because you will only succeed in damaging the visors. From the looks of mine, I'd agree with that assessment. Cover them with the pixeldecal visor decals instead.

The switch was actually in 2010.

Starting in that year, Jeep changed the type of adhesive used on the visor decals. The practical effect was that the decals went from "stickied on" to "bonded." I chipped at mine in my 2010 for a little while, but it was hopeless.

The best answer I've seen is cover-up decals, as used in the thread I linked in earlier.

Swap them from Driver to passenger side. at least the sticker is out of view from the cab when in the stowed position...

Not just 2011/2012 but also 2010 models. They are molded into the visor now. All you can do is turn them around or cover then up

Can't do it on a JK, as far as I know. Unlike the flat TJ visors, the JK visors have contour that I'd expect would prevent a proper fit.
