    I'm looking to do this on my 2008 Crewmax. I've seen this done, but have not found anything for the Tundra. Has anyone got a setup like this that they can share?

    Also interested...I've seen some flip-up plate mounts that attach behind the fairlead, but I'm curious about practical experience with them.

    2"CB shackles, bushings and 1 shim, lockerdown console vault, rear folding seat back mod, snugtop shell with opening side windows, 46g fuel tank, SDHQ sliders and hidden winch, Decked Drawers, Alcan leaf springs and got rid of the interior chrome
    Here’s the set up I’m using:D6D6CA0F-2ACE-4CAC-A4D5-C247D0E837AF.jpg292F4C21-F3A6-4827-A29A-2284EDCEDAE7.jpg 2C220273-BEF5-4151-8CF6-588C9822D4BB.jpg
    After attaching the license plate to the Daystar piece I pop riveted a piece of bent sheet metal to the plate and pushed some black fuel tubing that was slit onto the edge of the sheet metal where it contacts the bumper. Painted it all flat black.4320CE1B-D368-4979-AA65-4388671A8896.jpg
