To debadge the hood or not to debadge, that is the question.
 
I am a big Jeep fan...have had at least six new ones. But I am thinking of removing the "Jeep" badge from the front of the hood. For some reason, I think it would look good...

As I understand it from reading other threads, debadging is easy and the paint underneath should be just fine....

Any thoughts??? :confused: :confused: :confused:

To each his own. I like the "jeep" on the hood. Just me though....I've seen some pics of a jeep with the side rub rails removed, now that looked kinda sweet.

Did mine, love it. :thumbsup: Seemed a little redundant with the classic grille already there.

Goin nekked is the first mod. Bare frontal, bare arse. Heat gun, dental floss, glue gone, wax.

how do you do it again? I heard too much heat can melt the chrome...

+1 a hair dryer is plenty, just enough to soften the adhesive. If you use a heat gun, just a touch, say 10-15 seconds.

Once softened, gortex dental floss will saw through it without damaging paint finish whatsoever. Then hand pick off 3m adhesive remnants, and wipe off with glue gone. Easy peasy.
