First get some strong fishing line and a pair of gloves. put the gloves on and use the fishing line like dental floss to slice through the adhesive backing. (Some say to use a hair drier to warm it first but it didn't seem to make a difference to me). Then use goo gone and a rag (and lots of elbow grease) to strip the foam type adhesive off of the truck and badges. Then (you could probably skip this because you're putting yours back on, but jik) go to NAPA and get their pin stripe removing wheel (looks like a rubber disc). put it in your drill and "grind" off the rest of the STUBBORN adhesive. ( This does not damage the paint at all) Good Luck! Oh remember that the fender badges have a pin the sticks INTO the fender, so you'll need to work the fishing line around it. otherwise you'll be snapping the line all day wondering why.

You will need an adhesive to reinstall them.

no you'll need some 3m adhesive backing (advance, autozone etc.) it's like a foam backed tape.

yeah, don't use liquid adhesive. Some moron did that to my truck before I got it and it's ruining the paint around the badges. I need to pull mine off and get that area fixed by a paint shop. I want to put on the newer chrome badges anyway but i wish i didn't have to fix the paint. Good info on the pin hole though, I'm glad I saw this thread or i would be the guy wondering why i was breaking fishing line. What test did you use? I think the strongest stuff I have it 12lb test.

I think i used 20lb but it doesn't really matter you could probably use dental floss or an old guitar string or thin wire just as long as it cuts, if it feels like it could cut your finger then it will do the trick

12lb will be fine. It will take about 10 minutes to get all 5 badges off. The worst part is getting the double sided tape off, it seemed like it took me 2 hours to get it all off.
