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!

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.

So my wrangler came with these horrible looking graphics that I would like to get rid of... What's the best way to get them off?
AAAAAgh!!! Kill it with fire!!!:eek:

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

But let someone do it who has done it before... Ive seen more than one disaster with a heat gun and eraser wheel. It doesnt take alot to burn right through the paint!

^ or maybe a detail guy VERY experienced in high speed orbitals and paint restoration...

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. :rofl: :thumb: =)

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.

I wish I'd seen this post earlier. Hope its not too late to help. They make a vinyl eraser that is a 5" diameter wheel that you put in a drill. Use the cream colored type not the red. Gettem from parts house that carries paint n stuff. That's what we use, I work at a vinyl shop. Takes the struggle out of removal. 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!
