    How difficult is it to remove the TRD and/or 4X4 decals from side of the bed on a brand-new Tacoma?

    Not difficult at all, heat them up and pull them off.

    Not very hard. Get a hair dryer or leave it in the warm sun. Peel and remove residue.

    I peeled mine off when I got home. Go slow so it doesn't keep ripping and comes off in one shot.

    Easy.

    Like others have said, the longer it stays on the harder it is to get off. Hard is relative though because I took mine off my 2017 just the other day and after peeling them off and a little goo gone there is zero evidence they ever existed.20200706_152441(1).jpg

    removed the SR5 sides and the two on the tailgate.

    '17, 35k miles.

    The tailgate ones didn't leave the shadow, due to angle. The SR5's, especially on black, we're uggggly.

    This stuff, and 2 gentle applications wiped it clean. Also wonderful for light scratches and tar removal.

    Do it by hand if, unless you have good skills with a buffer.. don't mess around.
