Want to replace wood grain dash kit, Removal tips and Other kit suggestions?

Hi, Previous owner put a Wood Grain dash kit in my truck, The kit goes on the front of dash and on parts of the doors and over head console, It has grown on me a little but not a huge fan plus it is starting to peel.
My interior is lighter in color.

I was wondering what style and companies kits you would recommend ? I don't want another wood grain but I am unsure what would look good.

Any tip's on removal and replacement?

If I can get it off easily and cleanly I may not even put another kit on.

Garage
Try a heat gun carefully or a hairdryer to make the glue peel able. Once it's off use googone and you should be all nice and clean and clear

We have a long-time HTC member that doesn't post here much anymore but seems to be more active on other sites - he goes by (weedahoe) and at one time I believe he had custom dash options for the Gen. III Rams and the later models too .

I used a black colored wood on my 2013 Ram express, you really don'the even notice because color is very close to dash colors. Just enough to make all that plastic richer. I have standard dash 5a radio
