I would try lotion. Just kidding. I agree with 99escalademan on armor all. Or there is some stuff called stay black or stay grey. It's supposedly made for black or grey trim and is used to remedy the problem of which you described.

The best thing to do is paint the grey trim and the covers to match you truck. Problem solved, if you want to spend some $$. I did this and it looks great.

I would give Zaino a try. It's like Armoral but it is not so harsh and it last longer. I think Sal sells it or you can order it on line.
Peace Xrayqueen :)

On the rear bumper and on the three panels that cover your bed. The emblem was not purchased; I got a razor blade and took the center piece out. I then used paint thinner to remove the remaining paint.

Ic ic, well there's this vinyl and rubber cleaner by Meguirs that makes the plastic real nice, like pretty much new again. About $10 at Kragrens. Although it works, after acouple weeks, the damn things start looking dull again, I guess you just got to keep using it if you want the clean dark look.
