Same thing with my wife's car and the licence plate thingy. Went in the trash before we even left the dealership.
I usually let the license plate frame with the dealers name stay on up until the plate comes in. Then it goes in the trash.
This sticker thing just p**ses me off though. They assume someone wants their ugly sticker on their car so they can get some free advertisement.

Decal altenative

I'm new to the forum, but I traded in my Outlander Sport on my Cherokee. For those that don't have the TH but would like the option of the decal for much less than 150 and would like the ability to peel it off with no damage or ill-effects, look at PlastiDip. I dipped my front end, hood, and roof, all for about 25.00. You can get balck and white at Home Depot in the paint section for around 2.50 a can. One can would do the hood decal.

Havent dipped the KL yet but my OSport held up just fine. Even held up to automatic car washes and pressure washers.

btbean, didn't think it stand up to that. i was always afaid moisture would seep in through little pin holes and cause rust. may have to rethink this.

Oh yes, plastidip is a wonderful thing. I had some hard edge peel-back with a pressure washer once but it was my fault for going light on the coating near the top of the hood. With 6 or 7 coats it wont do that.

When I bought my TH I told the dealer no stickers on it or I wouldn't take delivery but I'm ok with the plate trim because they have taken very good care of me through the whole buying process.

The dealer removed the hood decal on our 2013 GC Trailhawk with no ill effects to the paint. Now I have a hood with beautiful black metallic paint instead of a giant sticker.

After 45 days of ownership, the hood decal was still not making me happy, so I removed it. Pretty easy, just started peeling by the windshield and worked my way towards the front bumper. I worked the whole windshield edge loose first, then tore 2 -3 inch strips off at a time. It seemed to me that there was a lot less adhesive left on the hood if you bent the sticker all the way over on itself while peeling. Took about 10 minutes to peel the the decal, and 15 - 20 minutes to get all the adhesive off. I used goo -gone then washed and waxed. I thought I might need some heat ( hairdryer or afternoon sun), but I did it in the morning and the hood was just slightly warm and it came right off. Goo - gone worked, but not as fast as I was expecting.

Decal Removal

Purchased my Mango Hawk in July, I believe it is a May 2015 build the dealer had to trade with another to get the equiptment I wanted. I had the selling dealer remove the decal in his body shop before I took delivery.
Perfect job, no marks or paint fade, he charged me $ 75, but gave me a credit for service or accessories.

Decal Removal-

abadiej old bean,

I so glad your anti-decalcomania went so well. My guess is that the Mango paint would not be kind to that sort of thing. Glad your's went well!

I hope your $75 "credit for service or accessories" is better than the usual "Official Key Chain & Cap" many dealers try to get away with. Even a "Jeep owners do IT where?" shirt would be better.

I hope all of you new "Cherokee" owners have been enjoying lunch with the "devil". In your new "Robot Cars "Christine's" (for you old horror show fans). First time I suggested I kind of like the new styling and aspects of the new car, the old XJ owners all invited me to more kinds of Bar-B-Q this old country boy knew existed, all with me as the main course! Some didn't even offer a side of baked beans to go with my succulent flesh. Darn!

Hate to admit I'm still playing with my '89 XJ. Guy in the bar "swore on his Mothers grave" it was the winning lottery ticket! Little did I suspect his mother as at the next pub over "swearing on her dead son's grave" it was the winning lottery ticket. I understand they correspond quite often now with nothing much better to do.
