I just bought my JK last saturday and I used a heat gun. As long as you do it while the stickers are fresh a little heat and your fingernail is all you will need.

WD-40 works well too. Spray some on, let it soak for around a minute, and a fingernail at the corner will take them right off. Just wipe the area down afterwards with a clean rag.

Might not even need the heat gun if you park it out in the sun this week.

hair dryer, or if you have a dark color just park it in the sun and go peel them off around 2:00pm.

Heat gun or Hot sun.

Just be careful if you take of the letters on the grill off.

Please tell me about taking the letters on the grill off, I am planning on doing that and replacing them with black letters.

Any warnings? Hints? Tips ?

Thanks in advance for any constructive input !

Like this? Just park it in the sun and pull them off. 3M makes adhesive remover that I use but WD40 or contact cleaner will do the job it's just a little slower.

for any emblems use dental floss. It will break if you buy the really cheap stuff so buy something decent. Run the floss behind the emblem and "saw" your way through between the paint and tape. The wax on the floss will help to protect the clearcoat.

I did this on a black truck and just touched it up real quick with some mild polish and wax.

I used a hair dryer to remove all the side stickers and the grill emblem on mine. Then cleaned any residue off with Goo Gone. Dental floss helps with the trail rated and Jeep badges.

If you want to make your Jeep badge on the front grill black, just spray it with Plasti-dip. You Tube it and you'll see examples. Super easy and looks great.

It works better if you wait until about 2:15pm

With a plasma cutter you don't have to wait at all. Works in any temp.

Of course how to fill the holes is the next post.
