    Can I just pull off the line stickers that go from front to back of the sides? Or do I need some special tools

    Just get them warm, lift an edge, and pull.

    Those are called pin stripes. You can remove them, but depending on the age of your truck, you may see a difference in the paint under there.

    Yeah, the paint under those stripes is likely in pristine condition - the rest of your truck is probably not. Might be a good excuse to spend a day with the clay bar/polish/wax.

    And the rest of the paint was a different shade/color right?

    Plan to paint correct your truck. And 07 red (what color the truck is makes all the difference in the world) will likely have shadowing from the stripes.

    Use a heat gun or hair dryer carefully with patience. Do NOT scrape or scrub the adhesive off. You’ll marr your clear coat.
