Tips/pointers for removing the jeep emblem? I have taken everything else off, and the jeep badge needs to go as well.
Fishing line or dental floss to sort of "saw" behind the badge without damaging the paint. Goo-Gone or WD-40 and elbow grease to dissolve any remaining adhesive.

Yeah, I’ll definitely remove the Rubi sticker and probably the Wrangler Unlimited while I’m at it. The hood looks sharp without it and it’s pretty clear it’s a Rubi regardless. The red embroidered seats don’t exactly hide that fact either.
My Rubi didn’t have the unlimited sticker. Did other folks?

I'm currently designing on my own decals. I don't like the tiny little Wrangler nameplate decal on the side, the Rubicon hood decal is insanely obnoxious, and the factory did not apply the Jeep emblem on either side straight. So, eventually they're all coming off and getting replaced.

Since I've got vectors of the Rubicon lettering off one of the marketing brochure PDFs, I'm simply going to have the outline of that done in a dark silver. I'm going to replace the Wrangler decal with a simple JL mockup based off the design on the plate mounted on the rear gate. I'm not sure what to do about the Jeep lettering yet. I like it, but I almost want to move it down lower like they did with the TJ.

How’d you do it, I’ve been holding off but I don’t want to ruin the paint. Any tips??
Literally just picked and peeled it with my finger nails. Residue was removed with low power Goo Gone.

I've always used a hairdryer and took my time warming up all the goo

So, I've been designing a custom JL Overland decal in Illustrator as well as the newer version of the JPP badge since I can't find a vector of that on the web yet. The JPP logo isn't 100% entirely accurate, but it's close enough to appeal to my OCD. It'll go on the rear tub corner of the passenger side (where the fuel door would be), but I'm still up in the air on the Overland decal.

You've got some skills. Looks very clean! Let me know if I can help get your final design realized.
