    Definitely Goo Gone, as Goof Off will take the clear off. WD40 works good as well.

    Heat it slightly to take whatever you can off and then use goo gone.

    this is absolutely the best choice for this, hands down:
    - no chemicals, no liquids
    - very little elbow grease required
    - 100% safe on your paint
    - pretty cheap
    - can take off crazy amounts of adhesive, like from the big TRD Pro side badges, easily.
    - doesn't really wear down so you can use it probably for a very long time

    Goo gone, elbow grease, finger rubbing the adhesive and blisters. Well worth it though.

    Can’t speak for the Goo Gone. But my body shop friend gave me a can of 3m Adhesive Remover. It was extremely easy. Spray on wait a minute and wipe off.

    I've never used an eraser wheel, but it looks like a nice option if you do this kind of work frequently.

    I have de-badged all of my cars for years, including the Tacoma, the same way. Instead of using a heat gun, I usually microwave water until it's nice and hot (but not boiling) and pour it on to soften the big stuff, which you can carefully peel off by hand. Any remaining residue can be softened with Goo Gone or 3M and (also carefully) wiped off with a microfiber.

    Always use clean microfibers and take your time, and scratching shouldn't be an issue.
