best scratch remover?

I got a ton of scratches on my TJ. I have used about $50 on certain solutions for the scratches, but nothing has really worked. I have waxed my jeep buffed it everything and there are no seriously good scratch removers, or at least from what have bought. Does anyone know of any scratch removers that do the job right?

I use this pen on the wife's Tacoma. Never bothered on the Jeep. Scratches are just part of the thing.

Amazon.com: Simoniz Fix It Pro Clear Coat Scratch Repair Pen: Automotive

3000 grit auto sand paper....wet it and keep it wet...for deeper scratches
Then rubbing compound and a buffer
Then polishing compound and a buffer
Then a high end wax and buffer

x2 on this above...just don't "burn" through your clear coat or you'll be into the base. Too much heat/pressure when buffing on an older clear coat can be costly. Let the compounds do the work
