Rear chrome bumper rusting, any help?

My bumper is rusting on the edges, it looks like it started on the back side of the bumper and then is attacking the edge.

Any thoughts? I try to keep it clean, and winter is over.

I've never had this problem, but I'm afraid the chrome will start peeling up.

I've barely had the truck one year, bought it new.

Take it back for warranty,.. they should cover it and replace it.

Agreed. Should not be rusting and peeling chrome off after one year.

It's just barely started, but it's only going to get worse. I may wait a bit and see, so it's obvious there is a problem, not just being nit picky when I take it in.

Mine was rusting and I had it replaced under warranty, but I made them give me a painted one to avoid the rust issue again.

Wow, seems to be an 07 problem? Maybe they changed suppliers of the bumpers? Or the supplier cut some corners to save a buck?
