Default Door Handles bed rails and tailgate rail...

All of these on my 2006 f-150 lariat crew cab are starting to fade, has anyone every replaced theirs? If so what is the best way to go about this? I could go for either a paint match or back to the original black plastic. Either is fine by me. I looking to replace all fading plastic on my truck however dont want to drop 1200 bucks on plastic.

I don't know where you heard 1200 bucks.. but I bought the tailgate piece at the dealer (Adamson) for $65. The rails shouldn't be too much more than that.

If your not up for the sparying on the truck (like myself) you can use Mother back to Black or other similar products from any auto parts store. it take a little while to apply but gives a nice look afterwards. Only realy downfall is that it will have to be reapplied after a month or so but after the first time of doing a few coats the nexts ones are usually just a quick wipe over and its back to good.

Griots garage catalog sells a back-to-black liquid that lasts 6 months. It applies like liquid black shoe polish. Be sure to wear disposable plastic gloves.

If you'd like to have chrome door/tailgate handles, you could try these!
