Default Should I Debadge My Truck?

Should I debadge the tailgate of my truck? It says "Dodge" and then "4x4" on opposite sides.

The only reason I ask this is because I plan on borrowing a heat gun from work to take off the deal decal stuck on the tailgate.

Just want to get other peoples opinions and see what the overall thought about doing it is.

Thanks!

Hey DeputyNelson, I, myself debadged everything on my truck and personally love the look. I have allot of friends that have done the same. It's all about personal prefference, really. I think you would be very pleased in the outcome!

I agree, it is a matter of personal choice and I personally like the badges, I even added some to the inside, too, lol, but either way, you have a nice looking truck!

One more time ! It is about your personal preference. I myself love the 3rd Gen badges that are on my truck ! They are very clean looking, you could also consider leaving them on and maybe doing a transparent color match to your truck ?

I love the debadged look, so I say go for it. Be careful when using the heat gun that you don't bubble the paint, I prefer a hair dryer when doing this, but if you've got a variable temperature/fan speed gun, then go for it.

My heat gun I have does have variable speeds thankfully. I'm not to worried about messing it up, I managed to take off the decals of an old squad car the other week and didn't break anything!

I debadge the sides of my truck and moved the RAM and Hemi to the rear at the bottom of the tailgate on each side. Truck looks a lot better on the sides and it gives it that clean look.

+1 on the eraser wheel. I used a blow dryer and the wheel and it was quick and painless.
