Rear Chrome SuperDuty removal?

Hey I got this put on when I bought my truck but not sure I like it anymore, started to remove it with heat gun as you can see in the corner but the glue is some crazy $hit. Any tips on getting it off or should I just leave the thing on? thanks

On motorcycles we use a piece of fishing (monofilament) to saw through the tape adhesive and then remove the glue with adhesive remover

I would try that. Just take the tailgate off and set it on some saw horses. I took the door molding off on my old dodge and that glue was a SOB to get off. Lots of goo gone and gasoline and elbow grease.

A trim or body place will have adhesive remover. It works very well

Yep ... I used some "thick" dental floss to do this once
also ...

Edit: I think it's called "dental tape" these days.
