Default Debading?

I got a 08 Ram and have been debating ever since I got it on doing some debadging, just wondering if there will be an outline from where the badges were once I take them off, if so I'll probably leave them on.

There won't be any indents where the badges were. I partially debadged mine, it gives it a clean look. Once you've removed all the adhesive residue, be sure to thoroughly clean the debadged area and give it a nice coat of wax to eliminate tan lines.

I haven't seen any cases of paint fading. I had tan lines left over from mine, they were pretty noticeable until I hit em with some wax. Here's a pretty helpful video on debadging:

Goo gone works well also.

O.P. as long as your truck hasn't been quicky repainted or faded, you should be fine. Fishing line is an awsome trick on debadging.

I would use fishing line to remove, goo gone to take off the 3m glue, claybar, and a good coat of polish and or wax.

I agree with TRIPOD, fishing line works great. I initially used dental floss, but soon realized it wasn't strong enough. Just make sure whatever adhesive remover you use, it doesn't harm the paint. The 3M is a good choice

Well first off O.P stands for? Not up on all the short forms. . . lol

My truck hasn't be repainted it has the factory paint on it, which is the only reason why I was worried about fading, if it had been repainted it would have been simple I would have told them to keep em' off, but I'm trying to keep the factory paint job as long as possible even though where I work is killer on paint jobs, but just gotta cover the truck up while I'm there. Hate those little black spots burning into my paint.
