All the trucks come like that :~( i don't see why Ford don't take note of these areas and shoot them at the factory with everything else ???

Looks like crap on a $50,000 Plus dollar truck

ford stopped painting tie rod ends and what not to cut costs. My 08 was all painted but I had a bunch of front end components replaced and they are all unpainted. Shoot them with some rust stop flat black paint and it will look 100% better.

mine has rust in the same areas. You can try to point that out to the dealer but honestly as long as the rust is tightly adherent to the surface and not flaking off I would not expect any action to replace....

Mine had rust in the same area's when I test drove it off the lot the day I bought it. I can't recall whether they're still rusted since I had it undercoated or not, I'll have to look in the morning when the sun comes up.

All those same parts on my mine came wrapped with that fancy KR leather.

Seriously though my '04 looked the same and I just painted it as others discussed.

Yes its beyond me why ford doesnt paint these components, i guess the $60k doesnt buy enough paint

Rustoleum makes some awesome rust eater that you can get at your local auto parts store that will convert that rust to a black paintable surface. They also have special "rust preventative" paint that will take care of it for a long time. Its cheap, easy, and effective. Just beware of overspray!
