I finally got to the point where my intake duct was looking too crappy and needed replacing. The part is original and seven years old. For the past three years it was looking like this:
Car Vehicle Hood Grille Motor vehicle

The inner and outer surface had lost its black appearance and took on a brownish look. It’s not a residue, but a surface degredation. The material lost its original properties.

Now, if anyone tries to replace this part good luck. Your Dodge dealer has ZERO reference to quickly identify the part number. Their parts catalog is worthless with no picture and no ability to identify this part. They went through multiple part numbers searching for the correct part and got as frustrated as me.

Fortunately, Nick at Steve White Motors Online Parts was determined to find the right part number. Save yourself the time and effort it took me and order: 68233367AB.
Hood Motor vehicle Green Automotive design Vehicle

You’ll be happy you did. I went through all this pain and frustration because I’m entered in the only car show I’ll attend this year on Aug. 21.

I've used similar product........it's temporary.
I agree. Surface treatments of degraded plastics/rubber are usually short term solutions.

Been about 7 months and mine still looks good. So that is good enough for me.

That is good. And you're using the CG Tire Kicker? I have some. I may try it on some areas besides my tires!

I use Tire Kicker on the tires, rubber, exterior plastic parts like the rocker trim and rock guards, wheel liners, window, trunk, and door rubber, (but not the gloss plastic like the tail lights), and all the under hood rubber and plastic. Put on a good coat and wipe off any excess. I think it does a fantastic job on all these areas, and it lasts a good while. It really looks good under the hood. Yes it's temporary but it does last longer than anything else I've used, and it's like magic on the brown intake tube. I have not had any adverse reactions from it either.
Just my two cents. :)
