    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Lift a corner with your finger nail. squirt 3M Adhesive remover liberally as you pull back the decal. Work slowly and let the adhesive remover do the work. [​IMG] Good luck!

    ^^ The 3M Adhesive Remover saves the elbow grease. Another thing, use microfiber cloths only on the paint! Cotton or terrycloth will scratch the living shit out of your paint! In other words, don't use your old t-shirt..or you will be sorry.

    like some said it was already warm out in summer and I just grabbed a corner and pulled it off slowly. I kept the sticker close to the surface rather than pulling outwards to minimize tearing and leaving residue.

    I didn't even need to use a chemical when done, just some water on a cloth to clean it off. I then put on all black/grey TRD stickers, no need for the red shadow :)

    You can also use Plastic razor blades to get things started... finding good ones isn't easy though. They won't hurt your paint if you are even remotely careful.

    The wife's hair gun didn't work for me but have some type of goo gone or any chemical remover helped.

    As someone mentioned, it takes longer than expected...

    x2. I can attest to this eraser wheel. I've tried goo gone, wd-40, etc..for the residual adhesive and none works easier, faster,with no clear coat damage than this wheel. Pricey but will last a while. Can't be easier than put it on my cordless drill and go.
