Anyone have any problems with their chrome grill?

I washing my truck today and what I thought was a big bug on the grille was actually a rock chip and the chrome is peeling off. It looks like plastic underneath and the chrome is thinner than tin foil...great

Damn, that sucks! I guess another reason to get a color-matched grill surround.

I wonder if your dealership would do a good faith warranty on it? I haven't actually heard of anyone else having theirs crack. Hmm...
