Dealer Stickers

Can anyone tell me the best way to take the stickers off that they put on. I can not stand them. If they want to advertise on my Jeep, they can pay me for it. Otherwise they are coming off. Told them not to put them on there and they did it anyway.

Not trying to be a smarta$$, but your fingernail. That's how I took mine off...worked just fine. You could warm it up a little with a hair dryer first...sometimes it helps. I didn't need to do that.

I know how you feel. If its the big plastic kind I used a razor to cut the foam two sided tape and then used sticky/gum remover.

I used a light switch cover, it is sharp and the plastic didn't scratch the paint, then removed the rest of the glue with WD40 on a rag.

For those big ones, next time try dental floss instead of the razor to save yourself from holding your breath.

I've seen dealers use a heat gun on low or a hair dryer set on high to get stickers off of their trade ins.

i sell cars and my dealership doesn't put stikcers on - we have plate frames.

i always find this topic funny and wonder if people who care about this debadge their shoes, clothes, sporting goods or anything else with a label on it.

also, why not buy from a dealership you don't mind advertising for?

i don't understand - aside form some of the stickers being butt ugly - why would you buy from a dealership if you didn't like them enough to have their name on the vehicle?

again, aside from looks, why then keep the brand badging of the vehicle on the vehicle? jeep isn't paying you to drive their vehicle?

I tend to not buy any products that turn me into a walking advertisement.

I have a few Jeep caps and t-shirts, that's about as far as I go.

I think some of it is about individualizing the vehicle also. A lot of us want to stand out from the "soccer mom" mentality. Plus there is some perceived notion from other jeep (TJ & CJ guys) that most JK's are worthless, so some of us take em off to look a little more "old-school". I never thought about removing the "Wrangler" stickers from the sides...until I saw some guys that had done that and replaced them with the older "Jeep" sticker. Gives it a sort of retro look, that looks really cool. I removed the front grill "Jeep" letters because I didn't want to be mistaken for a Commander or Liberty. Plus it was chrome...yuck!

Oh- I also remove any dealership added frames or stick on badge, whether it's a Jeep, Toyota, etc... for various reasons. Usually because I know they tried to screw me.

How about the Jeep stickers? Do they come off that easily too?

As Stub pointed out, some of it's individualizing the vehicle.
On the dealer thing, some areas don't have but one or two dealers, so you pick from the lesser of the two evils. I have yet to buy a car from a dealer that didn't try to screw me in some shape or form.

I've taken everything off the sides and put the old school Jeep emblems back on. The front chrome thing is long gone, same reason as Stub.

IMHO, the Jeep just looks better de-badged.

I would expect this response coming from a car salesman. First of all the stickers are ugly. Second, I told them not to put them on there because I knew that they would. I had the Jeep delivered to my work and did not do a walk around when it arrived or I would have told him to take it back and take them off. Did not feel like the hassle to call them out on it. Third, I am sure I payed the untruthfull ba*tard salesman plenty to not have to advertise for free for him. I am sure that you would not let me put a sign advertising my business on top of your dealership if I sold you something. If they want to advertise on my soon to be bada*s Jeep that I put my labor and time in, then they can pay me for it.

My nike shoes don't have a Footlocker sticker on them...that's where I bought them. My shirt doesn't have a Macy's logo stitched into it - etc.

Branding by the MFG is one thing, branding of the seller is another.

I don't buy the comparison between jeep dealer stickers and shirts/shoes. You pay for a Jeep, you don't want anything else on it, just like if you buy Air Jordans, you don't want a Footlocker sticker on there...no matter how much you like the people in the store.
