    The chrome or plastichrome window trim on my rear doors was coated with a type of textured paint at the factory, and it is now peeling / flaking off due to UV and age degradation.
    Any preferred fixes to this ? I was thinking of carefully warming the remaning paint up with a heat gun and just peeling the rest of it os, as the chrome underneath seems to be ok.

    OEM replacements are about $30 each at the dealer (at least for the Xtra cab) and are a cinch to replace. Remove the mirror, pull up from the front, work back.

    It is actually a thin layer of rubber over metal. I couldn't even tell what the hell it was until I picked up the new ones. I think the rubber is so thin, it just cooks in hotter, arid climates Also, the weatherstrip was brittle and bent out (not against the glass). I didn't notice at first, but I was glad I bought replacements because of this. Now that I have new ones, I will 303 (UV protectant) them regularly.

    3 or 4 years ago, TW member 'scocar' posted a how-to for removing that part.
    I replaced mine with a new part, since I don't care for plastidip.

    You ARE lazy ( :) ) but luckily, I happened to save my receipt.
    The part# is 68210-04020
    Not certain if this part, intended for my '99 extracab, would be the same for your truck, though
