Debadging after one year?
So, I want to debadge my truck but I've had it for a little over a year now and am worried about the paint being faded. I don't have a garage so it's always outside. I'm most worried about removing the big Outdoorsman decal and being able to the tell the difference between the exposed paint and the paint coved by the decal.

Any idea how big of a concern this is? I'm not really sure how much paint fades after one year?

I just had my 3 year plus old emblems removed, but there was also some color matching painting done, i don't know just where the color matching was done, it was mostly on the fenders & hood

everyone has said that they removed them, did a bit of clean up, maybe some buffing & waxing, anything that may have been off color will fade in with time

Good deal, figured I'd probably be okay after only one year. I'm not to concerned with the smaller badges, but that Outdoorsman decal takes up a good amount of real estate...

The only badges I took off were the "1500" on both doors. THAT I thought was too much for the front doors.....all the others I kept cause I really like em.

I debadged my old 2003 Ram (Graphite Metallic) back in 2010 and there where no issues at all. Just a good polish and wax and it was perfect!....kept out doors as well.

I had mine right about a year before I took 'em off. Very happy with the results.

I debadged mine after 5 years of use always outside, also a work truck. I didn't notice any color change. Looks like it came factory without them.

Took mine off the first week I owned the truck. Looks great in my opinion.
