Well, it won't be as easy as simple thin molding but it can be done. It's gonna require you do it in stages, from the top down, with some adhesive remover and some heat. If you can leave the truck out in the hot sun for a few hours, it will help a lot.
Start at the top, separate the chrome cladding from the body with some fishing line or a plastic spackling tool with a rag behind it, then squirt some adhesive remover into the gap. Let it sit for 5 - 10 minutes, separate it some more and keep going.
After you get it off, remove the rest of the residue (I hope this is the gray sticky tape and not the black stuff!!!) with more adhesive remover, then give it a good wax and polish. You might end up with some small scratches so before you wax and polish, use a light buffing compound to remove them.
Oh, are you gonna have fun with this, buddy...
