Default Scratches help!

I got stuck in a offroad picke with my truck and after finally making it out of the woods my truck is a little scratched up. I waxed it today and most of them dissapeared but i still have a couple of deep ones, whats the best way to fix them without taking it to a shop

how deep are the scratches? run youre finger nail over them and if your nail catches in the scratch that means it will probably need paint to repair it. if its not that deep some careful wetsanding followed by polishing should get them out.
