I went through the factory plus two flat bracket type plate holders before I gave up and just put my dive plate right on the bumper too. We don't have to have front license plates here in NM, so I can be happy about that I guess.It dose'nt look good but I took off the plastic factory mount and used the holes to bolt the plate directly to the bumper.
Lovely NYS strikes again. Was told the brackets are there to keep the plate at 90 deg angle from the ground so the police can easily read your plate and also the new electronic plate readers that can read up to 1500 plates an hour. If i bolt it directly to the bumper with no plastic brackets it wont be 90 deg and wont pass inspection. I will have to come up with a HD steel alternative.
One way you can find out is go to a tractor supply the mounts you show on the link are Maglite flashlight holders and for 8.00 you can make the exact some thing.
I like the product but it wont work for our trucks because the side rollers (which it clips to) are behind the front rollers and the front rollers are only half exposed through the bumper:
Ya, that could be a work-around for it. There might be enough clearance at the midpoint of the bumper to put a clip or two on the lower roller. I think the best design for a PW would be a clip that could snap into the space in between the top and bottom rollers instead of clipping on an individual roller. That being said, you would still need almost 3" of spacer to clear the bumper because the rollers are so recessed.that's true, but if the ones yhike put up are the right size you could probably clip them up onto a horizontal roller and make a "L" bracket to hold the plate. If your overly concerned with keeping it parallel you can just some onto the bottom roller as well
Guys that run their trucks off-road pretty hard rip them off regularly from impacting dirt mounds, brush, and rocks.Why don't you guys just use the factory plastic front plate holder. It comes with every truck as a no charge option, so if you ask your dealer for one, they probably have a bunch laying around.
