Debadge the sport logo?

Just wondering how hard it would be if I were to remove the "SPORT" badge from the bed sides. not sure if I want to do it, but I think it would look cleaner, what do yall think?

They're not tough to take off... more or less peel them off and then use some Goo Gone or something similar to remove the residue!

The only thing I don't like about them is the fake rivets and the large flares.

I'm pretty sure the rivets are real. Anytime I see pictures of a Ranger with the fender flares removed, the holes are still there... The only other explanation I can think of would be aligning holes for assembly, but I can't see a valid reason for 5 or 6 aligning holes. I could be wrong

Anyway, I would get rid of the red Sport logo for sure. the red clashes. I tinted my tails for the same reason. The red doesn't look so good against the blue.

rivets are fake, they are held in with push clips.

I vote keep em. I personally can't stand when ppl debadge their vehicles, to me i looks generic and unfinished. I also hate when ppl add additional stickers or emblems

but it you must remove them a heat gun works well for almost any adhesive just don't keep it on so long that it bakes the sticker.
