idk, i like them, because they match the rest of the black on the truck so well, but at the same time, i could imagine it would look really clean without them.. hmmm

off, or replace them with the newer style 4x4 sticker.

I went to a dealership and got Sport Trac 4x4 emblems for $9 a piece

Up in the air on it, off would look OK but leave it sort of blank.

Thinking on it… OFF !

I Was thinking the same on my f150, but they dont bother me enough to remove them plus sometimes the mark still shows they were there when you remove them

I removed them on my truck with a heat gun and razor blade. They came off super easy. I just barely got them warm as its easy to get them too hot and really make them gooey. Once I got one corner up they peeled off in one piece. You couldn't tell any paint fading on my 04 DSG truck either.

*BE CAREFUL* if you are useing a razorblade on the paint i would recomend just useing you fingernail or somethng softer that will not gouge the paint if you slip up.

done!




looks way clean, i like it.

pass side came off very easy. but the driver side was a PITA. left a bunch of residue. tried adhesive remover goof off a razor blade etc. but the thing that finally got it all off was rubbing compound.

btw used a heat gun for all of this and that worked wonders.
