    It's the white truck in the pic?

    My 02 tundra (white) had the same problem, I would polish like a mofo. I did not take care of the paint so well, but thought the finish would have looked better after only 4 yrs.

    Not as many as the 98..
    Rubbing compound. Just test on an inconspicous spot on the paint to test it out.
