use a new razor, start peeling an edge, then you can pull most of it off with your hands. It will leave alot of glue behind. To remove that i always use alot of window cleaner ( i have found that the ones containing ammonia work best ) hose it down with the window cleaner very liberaly , then using the razor you can gently scrape it off. If you dont want to use the razor you can find a type of sponge at the auto store that is sorta wrapped in mesh which works well to remove the soaked down glue. Also there you can use a grey scotch bright or those green dish scrubbing things that are like a scotch brigtht. Anything like that will work well to remove the glue after its soaked down with the window cleaner.

Foaming industrial window cleaner and a razor blade. And lots of paper towels.

I almost forgot...lots of patients.

oh wow a razor blade would be a pain in the a** best way to do it since it is warming up is to take a black plastic bag and cut it to the size of your window, spray simple green or 409 etc on the window and place the bag over it kinda like you were tinting it with the bag, then make sure all windows are rolled up and leave the truck in direct sunlight for a few hours, go out and the tint should peel off like nothing, if you dont have sunlight follow the same procedure but instead of leaving it in the sun use a heat gun on the out side of hte window, (works if you dont want to wait a few hours as well)

Use a hair dryer if you don't have a heat gun. I know that a hair dryer works good taking off stickers off windows. But get a new razor blade to start it.

Good luck. And that sucks you have to take it off.

Instead of paper towels use news paper. Saves your pocket for going empty. Regular cheap window cleaner will remove the glue. Then you get to go a little lighter with the shade of tint you use.
