I've discovered that there really is not a good solution for sun faded or baked black plastic. Almost everything I have used either washed away or wore off. I've given up on using most protectants on the exterior of vehicles. I usually just replace whatever it is thats faded, if its bad. I do use 303 on tires though.

Yess Kassandra there is. Both spray cans and paint-on gallons. There are many different brands at different prices, ranging from simple Rustoleum brand spray cans to compressed air powered guns+cartridges. If you're willing to dedicate a saturday to the DIY stuff you can save hundreds of dollars over professional high-pressure sprayed plastic.

You can use products like Armor All or McGuire's but they are temporary solutions. I've painted mine using Dupli-Color black bumper and trim paint and it looks brand new. In fact I repainted all the black bits on the truck including the bumper, valance, grill, mud flaps, rear bumper, door handles, tailgate handle, and I have been really happy. The adhesion properties are simply amazing, the damn stuff won't come off. Make sure you do not get any on your vehicle paint as it will not come off. It has excellent UV properties and it's easy to tough up from dings and such. Around $9 or $10 bucks a can. One can did my front bumper and valance with three coats. The trick is to put thin coats on and build up. Super, super easy. I put a cheap econo-paint job on for $525 and painted all the black surfaces with Dupli-Color black bumper and trim paint and the truck looks factory fresh.
