Hi all,

I'm new to the forum. Just bought a 2008 SLT-2, Liquid Silver Metallic on May 26. We've driven it about 650 miles, and I just checked the oil land fluid levels on my last fill up. When I had the hood up, I noticed that the lettering on the plastic engine cover was gray rather than red. I thought I recall that it was red when I looked under the hood when buying, but now I think I might just be remembering pictures I saw online while researching the car. Has anyone else experienced this? It doesn't seem likely the paint would have come off so quickly, so I'm wondering if I didn't just get an engine cover that didn't receive paint on the lettering.

No big deal either way, but I'm curious. Love the truck so far, we've had a very positive experience from day one.

yeah, when I read the first 3 posts with 2008 models I was curious what was the color of the lettering on a 2007, although I somehow remember it was red.

My 2007 has red lettering. Which is flaking off. So, I shall soon have grey lettering.
