yea offroading ripped my whole plate bracket and plate, didn't realize it intill i was showing my "brown" truck to a buddy and he asked where it was. Now i just have my plate zip tied[they fix everything!!] to my grill, up outta the way.

If your is an '05, i'd go back to the dealer and ask them for it if you have never had one. Sounds to me like they never prepped it right.

i guess it all depends on what state your truck is sold in as if it has the front plate mounts or not. mine is an ohio truck and it has the front plate bracket. i looked at a truck in michigan from a ford dealer and it didnt have one....i dunno if its true but seems that way depending on state law with two tags or one?? or maybe i should give up crack all together...

Good one, Adam. I don't know about other states but, in Michigan, if one person complains about your personalized plate, the state takes it back. I don't think that one would last too long....

The license plate size and mounting hole spacing is standardized throughout the U.S. The holes in the bumper are for the OE molded plastic plate holder and are not intended for the plate itself.

The reason I actually posted this in the first place was to see who wasn't using there's so I could see how it was mounted, and possibly get one from someone. I mean who looks at the wanted section that has a plate lying around? Anyways, I went back to my dealership here in NC (no front tag required) and talked to the service manager and he had one of the guys come out and put one on my truck free of charge.
