No rules saying what you can or can not do. But there is a general rule that if you post a pic of your truck you should expect to get negative feedback no matter what you do to it. Especially on a public forum.

The plaStidip is designed to peal off easily isn't it? If that is the case, wouldn't any place that sees wear and tear like wheels and grills, look like crap in a few months? I'm not a fan of the plastisol look. If you are going to paint then paint it

True, after a few months maybe even weeks the dip does start to peel and chip easy and does look like s***. I did it mainly because I am not a chrome guy, I thought black on red was a good combo.

I received my OEM "Platinum" letters today. Off with the old 4x4 decal and on with the new. I must say, the difference in the appearance of my truck is quite significant. I love 'em.

Do you live in in NH? Auto Fair Ford is 15 minutes from my house and is located in Manchester or otherwise known as Mansvegas.

Looks Great, I know I like the way they look on my truck too. It took a couple of minutes to get use to them and now I can't really remember what it looked like without them. I am asked all the time where I got these. I would also agree that this is something that Ford might add to next years model, BUT then people would not be buying the part. Is there a part number you used different from me? At that price I may get a driver's side and relace the lettering I have on my sub box.

As far as I know, there is only one part #. I used DC3Z-16720-A (same for both sides)
