    Howdy,

    Moved to Texas from AZ and need to mount a front plate. I tossed out a piece of plastic that I now imagine was some sort of frame.....

    What's the best solution? Just drill and mount on bumper?

    Thanks!

    Just get a new one from the dealer or Amazon. They are pretty cheap.

    TRDFerguson It’s funny because it’s bigger than a normal hat.

    You can probably find a take-off from someone on eBay or checking the Marketplace. I am in AZ and never mounted mine, so ended up sending it to another member on here that was in a similar situation to yours. You can also check with a local dealership and see if they can hook you up, but I doubt that will happen...

    I find it sort of amazing those two screws drilled poorly into plastic have not fully fallen off yet.

    I'm waiting for the day I don't back into the garage far enough and the garage door just shears that piddly little plate mount right off the bumper.

    Running boards. Shaved vehicle emblems. TruXcedo low profile tonneau cover. LED interior lights along with cargo bay and reverse lights.
    Mounted a fr plate for the 1st time yesterday and thought "what the?" when I saw how pathetically the plate holder was attached.
    I envision the day it flies off, it will manage to scratch the hood before cracking the windshield.
