Default Any way to remove the "LTE" from the data icon?

So I have to admit - the spinning spark icon has grown on me. So much so, it's all I want to see in my status bar when on 4G.

Well, not so much because I love the icon, but because it takes up SO much damn room on the bar with both the spark and the letters "LTE" (see screenshot)

Has anyone removed the letters? If so, how? I was looking for an xposed module to do this - but haven't had any luck finding one. Right now I'm just running stock rooted with G2 Xposed.

Thanks!
