Ya if there hard to remove use a heat gun, it will take them right off and leave very little sticky residue on the doors.

It wont be too different just clean it up real good and wax the truck and it shouldnt be too different, of course it will be slightly becuase it hasnt been exposed to the sun like the rest of the paint but it wont look bad. When I removed them I used a hairdryer and then wax and adhesive remover

Be careful I did that to mine and on the passenger side door it took the paint right with it and I did all of the precautions and it still didn't help.

you have to get them real hot so they peel off. I did it when I lived in arizona in the summer so that wasn't difficult

easiest way i found was take one of those plastic straps they use to close a large box and sort of fish wire it and use a up and down motion to cut between the double sticky tape it has on their.... after i just used some goo gone and it came right off
