My Debadging Experience
 
Just from general chat with guys from the JG forum I gathered up a few materials to start my debadging. Here's what I used..

WD-40, Waxed floss, Hair Dryer, Denatured Alcohol, and a plastic spackle spatula.

First I sprayed a little WD-40 on the lerrering and let it sit for a min. They I put the hair dryer on it for aprox 30 of heat to soften the glue. I don't know about older models but the badges were being held on by black double sided tape. Then I took about a foot of dental floss and sawed behing the lettering with the floss and badges came off easily.

the larger letters (Jeep, 4x4) required a little more work. I had to use a plastic spackle spatula for them.

I repeated these steps fot the 4x4, limited, and front and rear jeep lettering. Where there was a little glue left behind I used denatured alcohol and it came off easily. Here is the finished product...

After... (Sorry it was dark out when I finished. I took a Tack Bell break after debadging and before washing)

Just for the debadging took aprox 10-15min.....
I recomend. IMO it looks much neater and cleaner.
Good luck guys...
