Goof off wont hurt your paint

Clay bar is just a piece of clay you rub on the truck using a lubricant usually supplied with kit. Megeiars makes a kit for 20 dollars @ any auto parts store

You referring to Goof off?

I have used that several times on the truck to get sap off and when I swapped my ranger badges it took the glue off also. No paint was harmed

I would try that if that does not work get the clay bar kit. Clay bar kit is really worth it to give your truck a new factory like shine plus remove the spray paint.

goof off comes in a variety of bottles.

I have seen it in a aerosol spray and I have seen it in a pump spray

This one may be the one you want though

thats what i used to take the adhesive off from my badges aswell as my pin stripes, leaves some streaking but it comes right off when you wash it and there was no damage to my paint
