    Hey guys. I’ve been toying with the idea of removing my TRD decals for a little while, and finally decided to jump in with both feet. After doing some research, and talking with a buddy of mine who does a lot of detail work, here’s the easiest solution out there! I made a poorly edited video of the process. https://youtu.be/zQHwrrdAPts

    I just used a hair dryer to warm it up and it peeled right off.

    I personally would be afraid to mess up my clear coat.

    Good job.:thumbsup:

    I tried that at first, and it was terrible! My decals are a few years old on my 2018 at this point, and maybe they’re baked on with a little age.

    Probably, mine was a few months old.
    Your removal came out great.

    Peeled off the SX stickers from the bed sides. Tyger running boards. Softopper
    I used a hair dryer to remove the SX decals from my new Tundra. It was easier than I expected it to be.

    Used this to take the pinstripe off my 4runner. Worked like a charm. I'm hoping I can hair dryer method my TRD stickers though.

    It seems as though the age of the decals is really the biggest factor for being able to “just peel them off” as this wasn’t an option on my truck. I tried that first and it was a mess!

    Those erasers are great. I use them on all my vehicles. Just be carful you don't hold it one spot and burn the paint. Sorry if you pointed it out in the vid. I didn't need to watch it since I remove every badge on every car own.
