Unhappy how to remove top cap tape

I pulled off the two side bed rail plastic top caps and to my horror I have no idea on how to get that sticky tape stuff off the truck! Any ideas would help, or do I need to cover it up with new cheap looking plastic caps? The very thing I just took off!

HELP!!!!!

Try Goof Off. It works pretty good. Just have a couple microfiber cloths handy. Goof Off will try to dull the paint if left on too long.

Xtreme goo gone works pretty well too. I have used it alot and it wont hurt the clear coat. You can find it at Walmart for about 5-6.00 for a spray can
