Thank you! Now I just have to decide if I like that lettering/font or the lettering/font that's on the new GCs better. My husband says I'm putting in too much effort and time into deciding, but as I'm sure you know, looks are important to women.

Re: That chrome...

Haha at least you admit to it and what's on the inside So good think I have the overland.

As for lettering. I prefer the 14 altitude lettering. But that's just my opinion on it.

I bought the black side 'Grand Cherokee' letting and planned to replace it. When I got the chrome letter off and it was all cleaned up, I liked the stripped down look. Held off putting the black letters on and I'm liking it.

Are you interested in selling your lettering?

Holding onto them for now just in case I change my mind. Just got them off yesterday, so I'm going to wait and see how I like it.

I have read that people also use goof off? so wd-40 works too huh. I have also heard of people using rubbing compound.

On another note, I ordered the color matched grille and rear brow. Should be getting them tomorrow.
So I did this mod a few days ago: Used only fishing line to swipe off the all of the emblems on the my Jeep. I know many say to use a heat gun, but it's 95* in Texas and 10lb fishing line ($1 from Wal-Mart) worked fantastic. No issues at all, but it did snap a few times - might want to try 15-20lbs if you want to avoid the snapping, but it's no big deal at all, it was like a 200ft roll.

For the extra adhesive left, I literally took the pad of my thumb and rolled the big chunks right off. Was mildly rough on the finger tips, just due to the sheer volume of all the lettering . For the tiny parts/spots, I just used some bug and tar remover. Let sit for 1-2 minutes and it literally wiped 90% of it off on one sweep.

Whole thing took me under 90 minutes to remove the "Limited" "4x4" "Grand Cherokee" side molding x2, Rear and Front "Jeep" Emblems, to peel all the glue/clean it up, and attach the gloss black front/rear "Jeep" logos. Hardest one was the Rear emblem. Used some fishing line to snake behind it and than used a plastic trim tool to very slowly pry back, saw, pry back, etc.

Think it came out pretty well.

Re: That chrome...

My black jeep and grand cherokee badges will be in today, but I've been looking at the clean sides and I'm not sure what I want to do yet.
