Usually one would use some gentle heat. I have used a hair dryer in the past to soften the sticky on the back of car badges, stickers etc first.

Heat or not, you may have a sticky residue left over. On decals I always used my heat gun (on the lowest setting) and then a product called sticker off or Vinyl off by CrystalTek
GooGone is another one.

You can even try using the sticky side of the sticker removed to remove the residue, just have to go at it with a tapping action. At times this has worked for me.

Can i just peel off the decal carefully or should i use some type of heat? any how to vids/posts?
I peeled mine off after I had the car about a month. There was no sticky residue.

I left the car in the sun in the afternoon and then peeled it off in the garage. I just picked at a corner and started peeling. I did not use a hair dryer or heat gun. You will need a little muscle and there is no saving the decal as it will stretch, stick to itself, and likely tear.

After the decal was off, I just waxed the hood like I normally would. I like the look much better without the decal.

If you are left with any residue, don't waste your time with any other product...get yourself some 3M citrus based cleaner - no other brand. I spent weeks trying to get the glue residue left after removing a hood shield but the 3M citrus remover cuts through anything in seconds and doesn't affect paint or lacquer. Good for removing tar spots also...

It's common in aircraft to paint the area forward of the windshield a low-glare black to reduce reflections but the decal on the Jeep doesn't appear to be wide enough to do much good.
