    I'm the third owner of this truck, so who knows what all its been through.. But on my tailgate, to the right of the the handle, something has dripped down it, and either stained or stuck into the paint. It won't scratch off, wont' come off with soapy water..

    Is there anything, besides repainting and clearing the whole tailgate, that I can use to try and get that off?

    Try some rubbing compound or something of that sort.

    Don't use rubbing compound. It's way too aggressive. Use a micro-abrasive polish like SYSTEM ONE X3 or Meguiar's M205.
