It's got that nasty gray plastic trim around the wheel wells and along the bottom of the doors. Is there any replacement for this...like from the limited or eddie bauer models?

I have an 07 xlt and it came with the the trim color keyed to the body. I have seen some of the vehicles with gray trim and I didn't know if it was an option or a difference in model years. You might try a junk yard, they pieces come off with only a few bolts.


ya, I was thinking junkyard.

I was told it was a difference in the model years. I just think it looks cheap and wanted something a little more matching. Especially with a Gold body, the gray plastic trim doesnt match.

The less expensive models came with the gray/charcoal trim. The higher end models/Eddie Bauer have the painted trim and door handles
