I don't like them either. Too cheap looking for that ride. Then again, you said you just want to use them for winter so they would certainly serve a functional purpose. Then again AGAIN, winter in Alaska is what, 9 months?

Sorry to say yours I do not like.



Mine I do like.



Check out my gallery pic 3/14 I made them myself, you can only see the rears, I also made ones for the front (same material) but I see I don't have any pics up of those. My wife bought me a Digital Camera for my B-day I will need to break it in.

I don't like it. Looks like an afterthought, which is not good at all. Try to find the Ford made molded ones specifically for your rig. I bought a pair from Ebay and it's pretty nice.



Here's a pic of it:







This pic was taken long ago. It's shinier now b/c I use Eagle One's Vinyl Conditioner.

So, it's 7 months. Boy, I was waaaaay off. I couldn't live somewhere like that and I'm someone who used to go all winter in NJ without wearing a coat.

It's ok. I would like the white lettering look better but they don't look too bad with the blue oval.

i decided to take them off it make it look to low but they did keep ALOT of slush off the truck so i might have to go with some molded ones at a later date
