Well. l bought my F250 in early December. I drove it through the winter and today I notice that the chrome like finish is bubbling up at the edge of where the black plastic grip pads are. I am not going to the dealer to see what is up just yet as the world has shut down to the COVID issue. I am interested to know how many of you with OEM bright running boards who live in areas that have harsh winters are seeing the same issue. It looks like rust cancer in older vehicle fenders. This is the type of running boards I am referring to.
