Since then I've used WD40 on my bikes and vehicles worry free... works fine.
Caught up with my friend this a.m. Just as I remember, he was using goo gone while removing the dealership sticker. He could see a haze in the clearcoat immediately afterwards. (Sitting in the hot sun was not involved and neither were paper towels, lol)
We're talking about an older guy here who knows his way around vehicles and has a nice collection for himself. When it comes to detailing, etc he is very anal about it. Luckily the dealership took care of him... this being the ninth vehicle they've purchased from them over the years. The body shop mentioned the goo gone could have reacted with the clear and that they had seen it happen before. His bottle of goo gone is in the same place mine is, the trash. Just food for thought guys. Not the best thread for this but seeing as how the first thing a new jeep owner around here does is to remove decals......

Welcome aboard Tommy, I pretty much ordered the same as you. Minus two doors, got the 130 and no supplemental airbags or auto temp control for me.

I asked my salesman to make sure no stickers/decals/badges went on my Willys. I got the best answer: we don't do that anyway, just doesn't seem right. He put a tiny decal in the corner of the windshield, inside, so I can claim my free washes...and asked my permission first.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I went to talk to the guys doing my mods & they said no no no to the goo-gone and pretty much no to the heat gun as well. I brought her home & just peeled the decals off - took 15 or 20 minutes. Didn't need to use anything. Started with my fingernail & just peeled. Rubbed a little with my finger in a couple spots to get the little bit of stick off the Jeep & nothing else was needed - EASY!
The stupid decal design is also on the dash but not as annoying. I didn't take any before pictures - I was just too excited to get those stickers off. Dropping her off on an hour for the mods but was told the armor won't be back from powder coating until Tuesday or Wednesday so she should be ready on Wednesday or Thursday for me to pick her up.
I was happier picking her up at the dealership than I was on my wedding day.

On the dash or instrument cluster?
Is the rear decal up under the hardtop? Did you have to remove the top slightly to get the decal?

Must have missed it but what mods?

I was thinking of a winch, but until I measure the bumper not sure the Warn Zeon will fit. Although Warn shows AEV as compatible.

Yes, on the cluster. Didn't have to remove the hardtop, they were all pretty easy and are separate ones from the body & the fenders.
There is also a little Jeep on the passenger side of the windshield. We break a lot of windshields & have to get them replaced, I am wondering if we can replace with the same one as I am digging that little Jeep.
Mods - getting a 3 inch Teraflex lift, 35 inch BFG Mud KM2 tires with Fuel lethal rims that are going to have some of the milled parts purple. Getting the Poison Spyder Body Armor Powder Coated black with the spider showing the purple. Was looking at making the dash lights purple but wasn't sold on that so have not committed to that one yet & the winch will be a little later because we are going to get one for each Jeep. More to follow but that is what I wanted right away & am already $2,000.00 more than I wanted to put into it at this point.

I have had two windshields, so far, and they were replaced each time with I assume Mopar because I have the grill at the top and the little Jeep on the corner. Maybe it is State Farm, but I didn't ask for factory.
