I ordered the Granite JLUR and want to remove the "red" Rubicon hood decals and replace with black only, will do the same for the "Jeep" and Trail Rated badges on the side, change them to black only...does anyone know where to get the Rubicon hood decals for the 2018 JLU in black only no red outline? Thanks all....

update: actually going to keep the Red Rubicon decal for the time being, family likes it and it's better than I thought, I am removing the red "Jeep" badge today and the "wrangler unlimited" decal....I will probably go with an all black "Rubicon" decal at some point though....I'll dip the trail rated black when I do that....this thing "JLUR" is just too much fun

That would probably look much better.

Correct, must be ordered but dealer can remove or just break out the WD40.

I asked when I ordered and they said it has to be installed. If you spoke to the right person it could probably happen but connecting with the right person is the rub.

Love this look much better...Too big and not the best color, less is more....
Will be my first “mod” off the bat. The red around the Jeep logo is subtle enough I guess.

Although I like the new look of the Rubicon decals, they're obnoxiously big. I wouldn't mind a Rubicon version of the Sahara side badge that's a physical piece and not a decal. Now that I'm thinking about it, I could easily feed the Rubicon decal source file into a 3D printer, spray it with some metallic paint, and put it above the Jeep badge.

Guess that'll be my first mod.

Think that would look very good.

The placement looks so after market....

The orange and red some what work due to the solid black appearance, Granite Crystal, white, green are just too busy...

I always pull of the stickers on the fender. I peel off the "Wrangler" sticker bc if you don't know its a Wrangler, it don't matter. I do like the "Trail rated" badge and leave that on.

2018 JLUR
Hi all, first post. Ordered my new JLUR last week. I asked to have the factory not install the decals but keep them on the paper backing incase a future owner wanted them, or for resale value. I like my rig a certain way, but someone else might not.

You asked them, but more importantly what did they say? Believe they have to come from the factory that way.

They told me no. Has to be done.

They didn't think it would be possible but said they would try to look into it. I challenged my sales rep to see if he was up to the task, I'm fairly confident they will not be able to accomplish the request. I'm guessing for a lack of communication...

It seems like the Rubi lettering is just too darn big. It looks great to me without.
Did you remove the Rubicon decal yourself from the 2018 JL, or just take that photo? If you removed the decal, how did you do it?
