Paint flaking at 5600 miles .

The white plastic on the front bumper that runs along it has a 1" flake. It's to the plastic for no reason going to take it in Monday . Where its flaking it runs about 3 more inches where it's going to come off .

This happened to me on my last truck (2010 Ram 1500). Was at the car wash hitting it with the power washer and somehow stripped the paint right off the plastic bumper cover.

Point being.. its not just Tundras
