    You mean the metal/rubber side trim? Use a hair drier or heat gun to soften the adhesive before you attempt to pull it off (no pun intended). Same process as removing those annoying dealership emblems.

    Might want to give this idea a second thought though, as the paint underneath probably won't match the rest of truck because it was protected from sunlight by the trim.
