    Bring your truck to the stealership and make them fix it.

    Dude, if your truck is an 09, it's covered under your manufacturer's bumper to bumper warranty. Unless of course you have over 36000 miles on it.

    Just bring it to the dealership, your truck is under warranty still.

    the chips may not be covered, but the one pic you showed that blistered should be.

    i took it to the dealer and they will not cover the paint under warrenty because it was done by nature. it is not a defect. but since i have the paint protector it is covered. the body shop says it is from bird crap or bug crap. good thing i bought the paint protector. 1500 dollars to re paint the hood and roof.

    Thats bullshit, I'll bet it is solvent or something under the factory paint. If you don't prep the surface correctly paint will do that and I'm betting it's a problem from the factory and not bird crap. But at least they are fixing it.
