    I have swirls all over and I don't think 800 is too far off.

    Part of me wants to get it all fixed and part of me wants to vinyl wrap the whole truck.

    I like to off-road the truck every now and then. So I do have a few scratches from the trails

    Another option to consider is a step stool or small step ladder depending on your height so you don't have to use a brush.

    Microfiber or wool mitts, nothing else. Any kind of typical automotive or window washing brush is going to give you terrible scratches again in no time. You'd be wasting your money to gave it fully polished and corrected and then continue to wash it with that style of brush.
    A brush definitely is needed for a few areas but you want one with a microfiber head on it for sure. You really should only need that for the roof. Everything else is reachable by hand.
