Sooner2k1 is on a distinguished road
Default Plastic/Rubber on back bumper

Does anyone else have a clear plastic or rubber piece/end cap on the horizontal ends of their back bumper (by the back wheel well)? I have the 2011 Crew Cab sport and when I was washing it I noticed there were two areas that I couldn't get cleaned. When I leaned in close, I noticed that dirt/mud was collecting under the material.

My question is whether I need to leave this material on, or if it can/should be removed.

Thanks for any info.

I believe what you are referring to is a clear protective film that they often put in place for shipping purposes. You can have the dealer install Mylar film that acts as a durable clear protective barrier for salt, dirt and rocks, but unless your truck came with that as part of the protection package it shouldn't be there. If it is part of the protection package take it back and have them install it properly, as it is extra protection (and who wouldn't want that?)

I think he's referring to the black plastic chip guards. My '09 TRX didn't have them but my '11 Sport does. They are also on the trailing edge of the front wheel wells too. They are they for extra protection from rock chips. If you're getting dirt under them though I'd take it in and have them looked at (under warranty).
