I did mine. Parked in sun for about 20 minutes, used nylon fishing line (with a sawing motion at a low angle) to remove the plastic numbers and letters, peeled the foam adhesive off by hand (pretty easy), polished (with car liquid polish), then waxed. Took about 20-30 minutes for both sides.
I had purchased the 3M adhesive remover wheel and had it on hand, but the adhesive peeled off so easy that I didn't use the wheel and sold it on ebay new.

Did mine today. Fishing line, hair dryer, turtle wax adhesive remover (best I've ever used), and some time. Was a pain in this 75 degree weather until I busted out the hair dryer.

I used some 3M Adhesive Remover spray, a plastic spackling tool and a bit more adhesive remover after the parts came off to clean up the rest of the leftover adhesive.

I used the hair dryer & fishing line method. Still a lot of work to get sticky stuff off. I used Goo Gone and WD40 and the washed and waxed area. I would like to remove the huge Ram logo on the tailgate. Are there holes behind the emblem? On my Ford I had a body shop fill the holes and repaint the tail gate. It gave it a real clean look.

Big time. It was around 75 or so and the badges came off easy with the 50 lb test line, but the leftover foam tape was stuck on there buddy. I did the passenger side without it. Then I wised up and used it on the rest. Once you heat them up a bit the tape gets nice and pliable and comes off pretty easy.

After I had it off, I hit the residue with that turtle wax adhesive remover (available at you local walmart) and then rinsed it off and rewaxed those areas. And because I'm paranoid I then ran it through a touch less wash real quick to get any of the adhesive remover that had run off of it.
