How do i take the plastic piece off the tailgate without damaging anything? I tried to pull apart where my hands are pictured but there was a lot of resistance so I thought I would get feedback just in case. Oh and if you are wondering why...:)I have a secret project and I will post pics when i'm done!

May I ask why you are removing this piece? Is it for a mod or maintenance? If I could afford it I would remove it and make the tailgate smooth. That is such a clean look.

The tailgate protector is held on by double sided tape, most likely 3M. Take your time and lift/pull until it lets go. You can heat it from the inside if you remove the metal panel from the tailgate first, just take your time. BTW if you destroy it I think you have to buy all three pieces.
