Default duct tape on truck

hey anyone know if having duct tape on the paint of a truck is going to wreck it? there's some on mine and it's been pretty warm the past couple days i noticed today that it was leaving the typical duct tape sticky residue on the truck... one of my buddy's said that when i peel it off it's going to take little bits of paint off too this true?

get goo gone and put that in it, or get a blow dryer if you dont have a heat gun, and go slow. then getting the residue off is the hard part, but goo gone helps.

I've seen were a guy had a sticker on his bedside and he peeled it off(which took some time) and his paint was different shades of white. I'm sure tape would do the same in time.

It will not take the paint off. There was some holding my headlight on when I got my truck. It just left a sticky residue that wasn't very fun getting off but it didn't mess with the paint at all.

You want to take it off?! why... everyone knows the higher percentage of a truck that is covered/made in/of duct-tape the better it works and looks.
