    Afternoon folks.

    I think I want to remove those goofy bed decals and was wondering if these can just easily be peeled off (maybe they are under clearcoat) or if there is something tricky about removing them.

    Please advise, thanks all.

    Oh, and have a good weekend. :D

    yw....

    I just debadged a week or so ago... Its SUPER easy! Took about 45mins and I took my time.

    I will suggest to get 25LB fishing line..... the cheap stuff (4-8LB) will just keep breaking..


    Just heat up until the badge is hot to touch....start on one end in a sawing motion... you will be happy!! :D

    Good Luck... DO it and post pics!

    Perhaps I wasn't clear with my terminology. I was refering to the "TRD Offroad" decal at the back of the bed. My main concern is that there may be a coat of clear over the decal but since I know about as much about auto-body work as I know about space travel I thought I might ask if anyone else has removed them.

    Thanks again.

    I believe that you just start at a corner and they peel off. They are above the clear coat. May be wrong tho

    Ok for stickers (like your TRD one) head down to your local parts store and ask them for a tool called an eraser disk or eraser wheel, Its just a big rubber wheel on an arbour that you put in your drill and it will peel any sticker, rubbery goo or anyhting besides paint off your rig they run about $30 and are a LIFESAVER
