    So Ive inherited from the previous owner (they must have never wash the truck) and I wash it every weekend. So ofcourse its killing me and I have tried almost everything possible..or I could think of. Tiny amount of bleach and water. Also tried degreaser's and even some house/vinyl cleaner. Its mainly on the back glass trim that bothers me and my window seals. Once I clean it I use tire shine which helps hide for a little. Surely somebody else has had this problem!

    I tried everything also, I used some goof off it's very strong on a rag, then some rain x,
    and some HD wax on them... don't leave the goof off cleaner on it long or the paint, clean with glass cleaner... it helps but not as good new...

    I just scrubbed mine with a manic eraser and it helped even out that gunk. Back window much better, but door window trim still a little rough. Then put on back to black by mothers. Will see what it looks like in the sun tomorrow

    Still not where I want it to be. I got some 800 grit sand paper today. Do y'all think that would work. Or just buy the rustoleum mat black plastic spray paint and to a lot of taping off.

    Yeah I park under a tree in my driveway. I have this problem also. Makes my truck look like I never wash it. It's a truck, makes it look more manly! I tried Mother's back to black also. Didn't do a whole lot. I might try the white vinegar trick. I think somebody on here said to use peanut butter?
