w/ your 07 you can probably just get a strong pressure washer and spray yours off. othwerwise just take acetone on a rag or something and it takes all the black off the badges. Should be really easy on the 05+ badges and you shouldn't have to tape everything off.

One thing, if you use acetone, don't get it on the rest of the truck. It will dissolve the finish and you won't be a happy camper. Tape it off with painters tape (that won't leave any residue). Use a rag and an old toothbrush to get in the tight areas. After completing all of the paint removal from the badges, remove the tape and wash with a mild soap/water and buff dry.

I used Oatey PVC pipe cleaner to do mine, a fairly mild solution that did not remove the red lettering. Although I did get a little over zealous on the passenger side and removed the red.
