I'd have to agree.... Even with the super aerodynamic design of the newer JKs, I think they will be hard pressed to stay in the shape you have them in now. Good luck with them!

Brilliant! I wouldnt think it would be that easy. First sign of weather warm enough to take them off, cut and paint them its being done.

A heat gun works even better instead of paint

This tells me they use a BOATLOAD of pthalates in the fenders. It looks like it works really well, just be careful to reduce contact with the "sweat". If it behaves that way its likely a carcinogen and an estrogen mimic. Again, something where my career provides useless yet interesting information.

Just dont do it at night. And only donit once. If you keep going over the same area for some reason it will look like crap. And dont sit the heat gun lightly on the flare. I have a small streak in mine now.

2) Hair dryer and razor blade (this almost always works)

3) if just the dryer isn't working, soak the sticker in denatured alcohol for a bit. The alcohol will almost always take away residue as well

4) Industrial strength Goof off

5) Gasoline

6) and one special chemical that will burn your lungs out for the really, really hard stuff

Heat and an agent to loosen the sticker are going to be your best tools. Slide a razor under there and your sticker should just pop right off
Rain-X works great for removing Sticker residue!
