    Grab a bottle of methyl hydrate and apply some to a cloth and rub it over the sap, apply light pressure and keep rubbing back and forth. If your truck is a dark color you will need to polish the area afterwords if you apply too much pressure while using the methyl hydrate it will scratch the clearcoat but it will take the sap off completely. Been using this to remove tree sap in a detailing shop and it works wonders, nothing else will remove it. Make sure to apply some sort of wax afterwords to protect the paint!

    Satoshi, debadged, rear view mirror bracket, tail gate hose clamps, trimmed mud flaps.
    similar to remvoing emblems, try using a blow dryer/heat gun to slowly heat up the sap.

    Rubbing alcohol/Meguiar's ultimate compound has always worked for me.

    Fuck it.

    Take a grinder and cut out the sheet metal around the sap.

    Clearly the only way to remove the sap.
