    Dealer-installed pin stripe has already begun to lift in one spot, after 3 months. That particular piece I think I will just peel slowly and hopefully get it all. For the other pieces, will a hair dryer help in removal? I don't have a heat gun and I'd probably destroy the paint with one if I had one...

    Should come off with a little heat and fingernails. Can also use the 3m wheel if you want it off with little effort.

    Hair dryer or heat gun on low setting + cleanup with goo gone.

    Should be an easy removal with hair dryer and nails. Especially on a new truck.

    Don't scrape too hard... These trucks scratch easily.

    3m wheel. Just get the wheel. Unless it comes off super easy bc it's newish... I took mine off when I bought the truck. It wouldn't come off with heat and goo gone or anything. Got the wheel, went crazy, wiped the excess rubber (or whatever material) residue off the truck and bam. Easiest thing ever.
