Removing TRD offroad decal/sticker

Hey, was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on removing this..
Its on the side of the bed, and I am going to put a decal from sockmonkey in place of it in a few weeks. I don't know how strong they are, and if I need to be worried about damaging the paint. Maybe run some warm water?
Before I put the new decal on, anything I else I should do other than washing, and waxing the area considering I won't be able to for years?

For anyone interested in the decal I plan on getting from Sockmonkey, this is it. That is how it will look on my truck. Approximately. and this is how it looks without a truck behind it per se.

Ask for mirrored flags in flat black vinyl. and they are 10" wide and will run $13 for the pair (shipped) from sockmonkey. I'll post pictures once installed!

Hair dryer to heat it up. Should pull off. Might have to continue to heat a bit as you go. Goo gone to remove excess adhesive that remains.

Ive done this before. I used a hair dryer to heat the decal up. Then slowly peeled it way. After the decal is gone I used Goo Gone to remove the residue. Finally I cleaned the area with dishwashing soap and water.
Dont use a plastic scraper, it will leave scratches. Go slowly and take your time. The hardest part is removing the residue, it takes awhile and requires alot of patience.

FYI when you are installing your flag make sure the blue union square always faces the front of the truck. This is how its done on USAF aircraft. It makes the flag look as if it is moving forward to the enemy.

I used the pressure washer at my local car wash. Just point the tip about a half inch away and watch it fly. Be carefull if the tip does not have a rubber end piece. Took about 2 minutes each side and no paint damage

Did you get your decals from sock? Why is it most pictures I see this guy post are down or won't pull up? Seems sketchy. I love his work though. Just wondering if it ever made it on the truck and how it looks considering this was 2 months ago.

He's not able to make them anymore, think he lost access to the equipment. That may explain why pics are down as well. Not sketchy, he's been around a long time.
