    Ya I just heated mine up and they peeled right off. Then I used some automotive adhesive remover from an auto paint store that got the sticky stuff right off.

    When you got the decal off were you able to see where it was on. I am going to paint my box sides and need to remve the decal and I may replace them just not sure as of yet.

    Be careful with the heat gun. You can do a lot of damage in a hurry with a good heat gun. You just want it warm enough so you can peel the sticker off, not melt it to the truck or burn the paint. It's a simple process removing decals but just throwing that disclaimer in there... You might be able to see where the decal was once you remove it. It's easier to see the paint fade of the years on darker colors. The paint underneath will be nice, shiney and new. You may have to look hard to see it but there will be an outline.

    After I used the adhesive remover I couldnt tell at all where the sticker had been. I even put my new decals in a different place.

    I was thinking about doing this myself, I myself might stick with a hair dryer though. I'm afraid of what I might do with a heat gun! And I have always had good luck with some WD-40 to get anything left behind, and its safe to use on the paint.
