Default Removing bloat on stock rom?

I am assuming this is just like every other lg phone and if you uninstall a system app it will reboot the phone and reinstall it right?

Depends on what you mean by bloat. If you mean the LG apps, I dunno. But after using PurpleDrake I was able to remove Amazon, Google Play Movies & TV, etc, plus a couple of the TMo apps, without causing them to reappear on reboot.

And in case any of you guys are wondering what PurpleDrake is as quoted

This is a utility to easily root your LG G3 (specific models only). It's a fairly foolproof script that includes all the dependencies you'll need for getting your phone rooted easily.

Consider installing the ZoneRom if you want a shortcut to debloating. It's basically stock without some of the Google and T-Mobile crap (which I don't use). I haven't had a single issue with the ROM yet.
Current Devices:

Moto X XT1053 | 32GB | Black/Black Woven | Epsilon 2.0 (KitKat 4.4.4 ROM) | TWRP 2.7.1.1
Pre-Order Sony xperia z3 compact | 16GB + 64GB Micro SD | Black | KitKat 4.4.4 |
Fido Galaxy S4 i337m | 16GB + 64GB Micro SD | Sapphire | Dandroid GPe KitKat 4.4.4 ROM | TWRP 2.6.0.0
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2013 i7 2.8Ghz | 1TB SSD | 16GB RAM | Thunderbolt display
iPad Mini Retina | 32GB | Wi-Fi

Any easy way to remove that Carrier IQ crap. It constantly is #1 in soaking up battery life.
