    What is the best way to remove the factory badges on my 2012? I want to clean up the look and remove the 4 X 4 from the tailgate and the Ram 1500 from the doors.

    I have always used fishing line to take them off and acetone to remove the glue and sticky junk. Never had a problem with it.

    fishing line to remove. Have to do a sawing action. Then the easiest way to remove the residue is to use an eraser wheel.

    What i used to do mine was a bottle of goo gone and i sprayed the logos all around, ram 1500 and 4x4 and than used high tense fishing wire to take off the badges from behind. Its only 3m tape holding them on. than i used some warm water and dish soap to wipe off all the goo gone and some of the 3m tape left behind. Now you may see ghost letters after you wash it forth first time but after the 3rd wash it will be gone

    I just debadged my 02 and I have a few spots where there is an outline of the badge. It's not leftover 3m tape residue, it seems like it's in the clearcoat maybe? Is there anything I can do to buff this out?

    After I debadged mine with fishing line and cleaned it goo gone, I used a little rubbing compound to get rid of the outline and then waxed it really good. Couldn't even tell there was anything there. Of course my truck is silver so it doesn't show fading as bad as a darker color would.

    I used a clay bar to get rid of mine. Worked like a charm.
