Thanks.
Yeah it's an industry-wide epidemic. My custom shop is owned by a Dodge dealer and theirs are plastic now too. Some brands are even steelies underneath instead of aluminum. Sad when they start to rust on the exposed edges. The plastic is bonded on with some adhesive expanding foam type stuff so you destroy the plastic taking it off to sandblast and repaint. $650-1000 apiece for replacements.

Upgraded from "dorkiest tow rig" (as I self-proclaimed in post #3841):



To something a lot better! Still has room for all the kids, 7.5k tow capacity, V8 power, AWD, rearview camera (!) and every electronic and convenience upgrade imaginable. Plus, got to justify it as a present to my wife for our 25th Anniversary, since it's her daily driver:
