    Yup the stock chrome sux, i sandblasted it and painted it black sand pearl to match the truck. Mine was rusty and so was every one i looked at where the plate mounted. Just surface, the bumper was fine the chrome is cheap.

    Thats crap, I agree with Kngharley, go back to the dealer. Not acceptable on a new truck!

    I noticed small amounts(dot like) just below where the license plate sits on the bumper. I took a little Zaino and it it rubbed off. I haven't noticed any more since. Mine is an 07' as well. Not encouraging though...looking forward.
