    My has it too but my guess is that if I'm Not wrong that will be something like anti corrosion since most of us will be taking ours truck to the mod or to the snow and specialty the snow has salt that can make a really bad damage to the paint and mostly or usually that section section is the most affected

    It's supposed to protect the paint from rocks that get kicked up from the tires. I've also seen them on my Tacoma. Typically found on most trucks.
