Thanks! Good place to ask questions!

So if it's only double sided tape, would a blowdryer work better than GooGone?

Oh, forgot to mention...
The adhesive tape they use is 3M body trim tape -- amazing stuff.
I've removed it many times using the following method...

Warm it up a bit -- hair dryer should be fine.
Peel as much as you can off with a fingernail or a piece of soft wood pressed lightly.
Use Naptha (available in the paint dept. at Home D) on a cloth rag to remove the glue residue -- following with a clean rag. You might need to keep cycling through fingernail, naptha, and wiping a few times.
Naptha wont hurt your paint. That's what it's for.

Note, once you start the naptha part, stop the hair dryer part. Naptha is at least up there with gasoline in terms of flammability.

it could help you get it off, but the goo gone just makes it so you can basically just wipe away any remaining sticky residue with a rag. WD-40 also works if you don't have goo gone, just use the same principle. let it soak for a bit and work on peeling the edge back, spray more, etc. i just used WD-40 to remove residue from all the stickers on my back window, and a 6" tall sticker that was the width of my tail gate.

I've never had any luck with googone -- even though my stud painter friend swears by it. Try the naptha. You'll love having a bottle of that around. I have a 5 year old and my life is covered in stickers. The naptha has been a life saver. But, careful with overexposure to skin.

Ya i used a blow dryer and rag Dipped in gas worked good(gas and rag were used to get left over glue off)Remember there is three holes on the ford oval and two on the ranger emblem and two sided tape. To fill them I took the access panel off to the latch and put sticky one side mesh for body work and very carefully put epoxy from the front side of tailgate till flush and smooth then let dry and used touch up paint cost $13 and looks factory I already posted a pic in this thread cheers

Yes there are three holes but no indentation. This sucker emblem is held on with silicone. How do I know? Mine fell off today on the 2011 Ranger!

Ouch...
I was skeptical too why they would drill and then just glue. But, then I saw someone with no emblem and three holes. I also think 200.00 is low. Do really make it disappear, they'd have to do a lot to give the bondo that fills the holes enough strength to hold on, then come back in and paint all like was already mentioned. I sill think I'd see it and I have to do that on the fenders too which might require more R&I hours.
