Thanks, Lancelanz, I was just going to post the question to see if anyone had done it. I was worried about the weathering that sits vertically against the vinyl blackout tape along the length of the pillar, but it appears that the bottom is the only place to be concerned with? Thanks for the photos, man.

i just stuck my fingertip in the top corner of the window weatherstrip and ran it down as i peeled the decal off . i didnt take the bottom trim all the way off just took the the screw out to pull it back a little to get the bottom out.

yeah they are vinyl. now that i think about it that was a cheezy move by Dodge
Same thing was on my 1999 Dakota extended cab ... frankly i put 150k miles on that truck in the 10.5 years i owned it before buying my new 2009 Ram, and the black vinyl decal on mine held up perfectly over the years .. when i sold the truck, the decal was in 100% condition ..
Looks good Rich. Now bring your truck over so we can remove those badges. It'll only take 20 mins and can be done for the low low price of.........Not $10.99..........not $5.99.........but if you call within the next 7 days we will give you the special price of $FREE.99
I think all vehicles look classier with the door handles and mirrors same colour as the vehicle instead of a black truck with black plastic door handles. My window sticker has a delete black vinyl...something or rather.

I notice one of your or neighbors up the street has a Dodge, my next door neighbor has a white 09 lonestar, not sure how mine would look, it is black and the front windows are tinted to max so it looks pretty good now, I will have to go look at it and try to imagine the difference.
