    I took mine off with a hair-dryer. But since you have an 02, there will more than likely be faded areas and such, so you may want to peel a tiny portion off one side and see if the color is different. Very easy project and looks better IMO.

    Astro Eraser wheel!!!!

    It is basically a big eraser that hooks up to a pneumatic gun and removes foam tape, pin striping, decals, etc. I got one to remove my TRD decals, and foam tape for the Tacoma badges. Worked amazing, doesn’t hurt the paint. They cost from $15-20. The only possible issue will be finding one, call your local body and paint shop suppliers.

    Definitely worth the money!
