    Try spraying WD-40 on the top and wait a while down under the sign. Just a suggestion I use that stuff on everything

    I just went through the exact same thing. It was like they were glued on with super glue. I used "Goo Gone", and they finally loosened up.

    You might try a hair dryer. If that doesn't work try ice. A change in temperature should work.

    If none of the above works without doing damage, call the folks at www.magneticsigns.com and ask for assistance.

    Here is a sign site that offered this suggestion to maintain magnetic signs.

    "Your signs should be periodically removed - once a week minimum. Wipe dry both the vehicle and the back of the sign. Trapped moisture, dirt, or chemicals may harm your vehicle finish. Clean your sign with plain water and a mild detergent."

    Buy new ones you tight wad. You got a new truck, don't make it look cobby with old signs.
