    I see that the 4x4 can be taken off with fishing string. Can the Tunda and I Force be taking off also? Also, I would gladly pay someone for a memory stick to get this damn Ave Miles message off.

    Heat them up a bit and use fishing string to remove. Then goo gone or wd40 to clean up the rest.

    I have same truck as you, and because they're so new, you can just pull them off. I used a pliers for Tundra and 4x4 badges and a screwdriver for 5.7L I force badge. Super easy, just be slow and careful. WD 40 and finish with a rubbing compound.

    Back at you Mike. I'm really jealous of your fishing skills, lol. Those are state records in most places.

    I fish 5-6 days a week. Used to compete, got to be like a job and stopped. Bought a house on the water, now I go when I want which is quite often.

    Use heavy line or you'll be snapping more of the line more frequently.

    Your mom
    ^^ This. Take a blow dryer to it for a couple mins and they come off like a charm. Use bug and tar remover for any residue. If you take your time you can get them off straight and then make some mula off them here or ebay!

    Pliers / screwdrivers? Newp. That's going nowhere my paint. Our paint is so cheap as it is it seems, I wouldn't want that near it.

    You definitely want to remove them without messing them up. You can get decent $ for them. Surprisingly enough a vast amount of truck owners do not debadge. Badges sell for a lot of money on EBay. A friend recently bought a 2010 Sierra Texas Edition. The previous owner tossed all the TE stuff. Sad to say but even special badgiing is stolen of trucks because of the moola it can bring.My friend wanted the factory badging. Paid close to 6 bills to restore factory Texas Edition look. Everyone looks at their truck differently and will put their own personal touches. Just don't toss the badging. Probably one of the easiest things to sell. Guarantee they will before the Duelers. Remove carefully. Our paint looks good but finish does suck. scratches way too easy. I get a screw driver with in two feet and the paint will scratch. ( maybe not quite that bad, heh heh

    Not quite 100% but damn close. Amazing how much cleaner the lines look.
