This is dissapointing... I just traded my 03, for an 2010 this last weekend and I was intending to remove that HUGE ford emblem on the tail gate this weekend. Glad I looked this up first and learned about the pins.

What were they thinking of putting a hood ornament on the REAR of the truck?

yeah i hate those giant emblems. i liked how the older models just had the little one in the corner. oh well. my favorite ones are the really old ranger that have the word ford on the right side. i think '88 maybe? couldnt find a picture right away so i gave up.

i didnt think it would be hard to remove that stupid sticker. i thought it would just peal off and id use some goo gone for the residue. i always thought of trying but i dont care enough. doesnt bother me that much.

You to can have the look of the new tailgate. buy ur self a huge ford oval and new ranger badge. remove the old ford oval put new ford ranger badge over the holes from the ford oval and center ur new huge ford oval.


I have that and have been asked by people if it was a factory error since the ranger badge is on the opposite side.

Oh, haha. That's funny. I'd just get a new tailgate tho. It has like 6 random screw holes, and lots of little dents, I've tried to pop them out, but to no avail. So....not really worth it. I'd LOVE to have a new one. Yummm.

3m makes an adheasive remover that's clear-coat friendly and will take off anything but it makes turpentine smell like lemonade. It's got hexane and BAAAD stuff in it. I use it all the time and got it at a normal parts store. It was like $15 a quart though
