    Soot or carbon that seems extra heavy in the tail pipe and on the bottom of the tail pipe. It's actually "bled" to the underside or outside of the pipe. No performance issues, smells, dash lights ect. I've never noticed this before on this truck or others but to be honest I can't say I've ever really checked...so this could have been here all along.

    Normal? Issue? Still well under warranty but since there is no performance issues etc figured why bother.

    Look in my gallery and see if youve got the same thing going on as i do. It kinda spreads to the fender flare? Again yea its normal but awful annoying. Someone told me to take it off with a magic eraser and i did do that. I believe it took the black shit off right along with the clear coat in that spot so i do not recomend doing this.
