    Anyone else have this problem? It’s only on my driver side.

    Not on my 2015 ! IMO it is caused by the liquid crap they salt the roads with! Get everywhere :O

    just seemed odd that it’s only the driver’s side. I wash my truck after every salting. Is there a bracket between the number and fender that you are aware of?

    I also do the same as you do !
    My guess is that lower section has rubbed on the upper scraping off the paint ! If you find out for sure please update ! Thanks

    My 2015 outdoorsman that had the painted bumpers did this. It rubbed the same spot. Luckily it was still under basic warranty so it was painted and aligned properly at no cost to me.

    Fluid film is your friend. Annual rust proofing with it will prevent that almost indefinitely.
