Try a hair dryer, or a heatgun, then gently pry... Be careful tho if you use a heatgun, the paint will bubble very easily if you dont pay attention, then you can remove the residue with some goo gone...

Fishing line. warm up the badge with the heat gun or a hair drier. then run the fishing line between the badge and paint. then clean up the left over glue with some goo gone.

Well if your 04 trep is anything like my 04 trep, the hood badge should have fallen off on it's own at least once by now...

You should be able to use some floss or fishing line and kinda slice through the foam adhesive pad on the bottom. You can remove the adhesive with some goo gone or something similar.

I was very disappointed with goo gone..since so many people spoke highly of it.... I got the Goo Gone Xtreme remover...it has not touched anything that I have tried to use it on..adhesive residue on multiple surfaces....badge/emblem foam adhesives.. and a few other random sticky things that pop up on the car(exterior) during driving...not to mention it evaporates in about 10 seconds.....
My product of choice is Klean Strip Auto Prep..surface cleaner (Auto Zone IIRC)....I actually got so tired of goo gone not touching anything I used it on..so I gave it to the trash can......


my temporary sig page..till I get time to make one! HERE

True That. All I had left was half the foam that was around the metallic ram logo. I thought it would look better without it and just peeled the rest off with my fingers. It does look much better, even with some residue still there. I should go buy more goo gone and get the residue off, but I've been too lazy to care.

If you can get the area slightly warm, I had success just using my finger/thumb to 'roll' the leftover foam/adhesive right up and off. No chemicals necessary. YMMV.
