I took the badges off the tailgate, assuming I wouldnt have this crap to deal with.

Anyone know of an easy way to remove the old glue and help get rid of the shadows?

WD40, OOPS or Goof Off will work. You can find OOPS and Goof Off at Wally World. You will still need to use elbow grease...that sticky crap is not easy. Remember to wax and buff when you gett all that crap off.

Spend the $10 and get an Eraser Wheel from your local auto parts store. They work magic for this sort of stuff.

I used a generic foaming bathroom cleaner on mine. Did a great job and didn't damage the paint or any plastics. Had no eraser wheel handy and it still only took ~45 minutes to debadge the whole truck.

Well, eraser wheel did the job. Tried goo gone, wd40, and others. Took me 4 stores to find the wheel, but finally found it at carquest.......$40!!!!! :(
But it took me literally 5 minutes to finish, then clay bar-ed and waxed. Looks good!
