    I would either wait until you have access to electricity or since you're in GA just wait until summer when it's parked outside in direct sunlight and the temps are near 100.

    Out here in summer the sun is intense. I just waited until it was late afternoon on a 100+ degree day and the badges pretty much just peeled off with just my fingertips.

    It'll also make removing the adhesive a lot easier too.

    Get the 3M automotive tape with the red backing.

    I'm pretty sure that's the going advice, don't quote me on that.

    undercover tonneau ,bug deflector, removal of all tacoma emblems added a set of component speakers behind the rear seat egr in channel window visors
    i took a piece of fishin line and ran it behind the badges and worked it back and forth .that worked well for me . any residual glue came off with some bug and tar remover.
