JKF sticker removal

The vinyl of the JKF sticker is so cheap/thin, I had a hell of a time trying to get it off



So we resorted to more drastic (and appropriate) measures




Yup, that worked

we were working on mounting a custom spare tire carrier (RockRash4x4 prototype). The carrier is on, but not ready to show pictures of it yet- still more work to do on it.

Ya'll must have jumped on that sticker first thing... it was long gone when I got there. Now just take the flame to the sticker on HippyJ's heap.

I feel like such a wimp... I used a hairdryer to heat up the decals on my jeep when I wanted to remove them...

I have SO much to learn!

you can also go to your local body /parts store and there is a rubber wheel you can get that mounts to your drill.
it's mainly used for pinstripe removal but works well with all decals
and will not harm your paint

I’m taking my JKO (not JKF) stickers off. The font doesn’t match and you can’t read the forum URL anyway. Nothing against the forum, they just don’t look very good on the Jeep. I'm not much into stickers to begin with.

Looks like you put it in the wrong place Alec. It's too far forward down there. They seem to look better on the cowl corner

Mine are hanging on the cork board in our computer room. I just removed the X stickers over the weekend and would put them in that spot or under the Unlimited. Wife isn't really into stickers so for now they remain in the house.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...

Are the shocks upside down alec? I know initially they were designed that way but I thought they reversed them pretty quickly to have the res on top due to damage/rubbing etc...

They did redesign them and I kept meaning to send them back to fox and have them swapped. In the mean time I wheeled the crap out of it like this and nothing rubbed so I left them like it

With the help of mother nature providing 90* temps and plenty of sunshine, my stickers practically "fell" off the jeep today. no worries jkf-tard management, i won't be showing your precious logo in my new home.

and just for the record, mr edwin, robneckjeep cost you another whole section of your site. how do you like them apples? great job in your selection.

Mine came off in about 1000 little pieces...even with the help of an adhesive remover...the vinyl is cheap but the glue is strong! I guess someone really wanted to "leave his mark"
