Easy just pull those suckers out and clean up glue with WD40. You can use fishing line to start them up.

Dont follow those instructions our 2011 and 2012 GC do not have clips to hold the moldings. Many people have already change to the SRT8 lettering instead of the molding.

Removal of the front 'Jeep' badge & the lower Chrome Door Molding
I had de-badged the rear a few months back and debated on the Jeep upfront. So, I took a pic and edit the Jeep out, liked the way it looked so I decided to take it off. I used my finger and some dental floss. Then, I cleaned the glue with 3M Adhesive remover and re-waxed.

Then, I attacked the lower Chrome Door Moldings. This was pretty easy. I used a library card to help pry the glue on the moldings. Dental floss, like I use on the badges, wasn't strong enough and I am not a fisherman so I don't have any fishing line lying around, but that would probably have worked. Then, I cleaned the glue with 3M Adhesive remover and re-waxed.
