Don't like the grey top, try this
This is not a cosmetic dressing. It's an easy-to-use permanent dye.

Take a look at this link and read the reviews, look at the customer images

Traditionally these products are not an actual dye but a silicone based rejuvenator. Sadly, I have tried quite a few of these products on plastics which were gray from the factory and they will not change the color of the material.

The best i've found is Solution Finish, which also will not dye plastic to black so much as restore the color (even though the product is a dark black).

Solution Finish now makes a restoration product for gray plastics, however. So you can keep that gray, gray!

The Sasquatch flares are just ginormous. Too big, and they look a little ridiculous. They make the tires looks smaller.

The only reason Ford made them that big is because NHTSA mandates it.

I think the regular flares would look much better on Sasquatch and I plan on swapping them.

So I have laid off of complaining about the MIC tops, but this setup looks especially bad to me. The grill and bumper are black. The mirrors and fender flares appear to be about the same black. The beam the mirrors are attached to is grey. The b-pillar is black, but a different shade of black. The top is grey, so it's not even close to anything else on the truck.

I mean, is this really the plan? That looks pretty terrible. (The mismatched shades of black/grey I mean. The truck itself looks fine and I like the race red.)
Didn’t M. Levine say they are working on grain and what you see now doesn’t mean much on what we will get?

However the one I posted...
It permanently dyes all textured black plastic, rubber and vinyl with the same polymers that the manufacturers use. It is not a silicone dressing
