Decal removal

I have a 2017 Cherokee 274dbh. Not a fan of the "wolf image" decal on front. Thinking of removing it. Any advice? Pros...cons. Click image for larger version

The Decals are easy to remove, I made a mistake and used a high pressure washer, got close to mine and it just peeled it right off. The second part there are so many things that a graphic company can make to replace it, they sometimes have pictures of work they have done or find an avitar on your computer and copy it. They can reproduce it. The pictures are endless that will be the hard part. Post some before and after shots so we can see....

Mine started to peal off, removed them all with a hair drier. Didn't take long at all. What little glue residue left was removed with acetone followed by soap and water and a good polishing. At first we were undecided if we were going to put anything back on the nose but decided to leave it a blank slate. Works for us.

That looks nice and clean. May just leave the Cherokee and remove the "wolf image".

You are just a light person Bob, You have installed more lights on your unit then a Xmas tree. Still would like to know how you got to wire all those without removing your cap. If people can't see your trailer now at night they would have to be blind.... If I had your talent I would beable to wire all my running lights over, being nobody can find that short. It would have been cheaper for me to fly you out here then all the money I have spent between Ford, my dealer and a automotive electrical guy....

Our 8289ws only has 2 small decals left. The rest kept coming off. Wax on the cap now and the bugs just wash off with the rain. They used to stick to the decals.

Not a Cherokee, but a cap that I felt like claiming.
