    EGR in channel vent visors, low profile tool box, tailgate hose clamp mod, trim mud flaps, LED dome, maps, reverse lights and license plate lights, tech deck, clear view rear view bracket, plastidip badges (removed) and grill and rear bumper, G Tek Fab door sill protectors, tinted front windows to match rears, deleted silly rear seat access cab headrests, debadge, added black vinyl badges
    Debadged my 2014 yesterday. Hair dryer for a minute at each location and 50# test fishing line with a finger loop at each end to have grip on it worked great. Took about 30 seconds per badge to get them off. Then about 30 minutes with finger nail and goo-be-gone to get the adhesive and leftover tape off. I broke about 2 or 3 fishing line setups, but it worked great.

    If you would have heated that leftover adhesive, it would have some off super easy. I too debadge everything. Even my daughter got it off in one piece:)

    I used a hair dryer on high for about 30 seconds on each letter and slipped my college ID under the badge to get it off. Came off pretty easily. Some Goof-Off and a microfiber rag took care of the rest.
