thinking of taking the FX4 stickers off....

i'm not a fan of stickers and have been thinking about taking these off since i bought the truck. it's an '08 that was built in '07. if i remove the FX4 stickers, will i be able to see the "shadow" of where the stickers used to be?

Depends on how often you waxed and cleaned your truck. The suns UV can diminish the paints color over time, but if you kept your truck clean and waxed regularly, it probably won't have had enough time to be damaged.

I removed my stickers the first weekend I had the truck, no issues with the pain or anything after removed.

I removed mine after about 4 years. I don't wax my truck, and probably don't wash it as much as it needs to be. If I look at it just right, I can see where they were, but I've never had anybody ask, "whats wrong with your paint right there?"

just a guess, but i'd say the previous owner didn't wax the truck EVER! it's been kept considerably cleaner since i've owned it.

i believe i'm going to pull them off this weekend. thanx for the input

Hair drier here as well. Slow and steady. Don't expect it to come off all at once, it will take some time and patience but will come off cleanly.

Heat gun/ hair dryer works as long as you have something dull to help pull them off and not scratch the paint.
But they make what is called an 'eraser wheel'. Just like it sounds rubber wheel on a stud you can connect it to a drill or dremel and take them off that way. That is what they are made for.
