front license plate?
 
Maybe a dumbass question here but I've got more than a few beers in me right now and I'm about as sharp as a bowling ball. On the front of my bumper there are 2 kinda square holes, I would like to put a chrome license plate in the front so I figured I needed a license plate holder, makes sense. When I browsed holders, they all have a 4 bolt pattern to them. What do I need to buy so I can fill in these 2 squareish holes in the front. How have any of you eliminated this eye sore on the front bumper. I've never owned a truck that didn't have something in the front to attach a plate to. Please help:doh:

The 2 holes you speak of are plastic inserts that screws, not bolts go into to hold the license plate on.

If you have a frame around the plate the bottom holes in the frame or plate are empty.

Wouldn't that make the plate lower and not centered. Again, now I'm a little drunk. Please someone post some pics of some sweeeet front license plates. I'm leaning towards one that is chrome with a dodge emblem and has a red 4x4 below it. Iv'e had numerous peeps ask me if it is 4 wheel drive. Since the only place it acutally says 4x4 is the tailgate, I thought something in the front that stated that would work out. I loved to here some feedback.

How about a pic or two of these two squares in your front bumper. I suspect those are the plugs that the square plastic nutserts go onto for your license plate bracket.

Screw a couple of these in there and call it good. I only wish I didn't have to display a front plate.... lucky you!

Yep, always pissed me off with my cars, especially my 1st gen Avenger, just ruined the looks and for what? A cop to have a target to aim his radar at!

Now that I have a truck I have an excuse to find one of these.

Yea those 2 squares are for the license plate buddy. Dont feel bad, beer kinda screws up judgment haha

Thanks for the help, I just ordered them. I really didn't want a plate there anyway. This should work just fine and I'm feeling much better now. lol

Installed them yesterday, just what I wanted. No plate, no holes. Thanks for the recommendation. :smileup:.http://www.ramforumz.com/PHOTOPOST/data/2/DSC_0006.JPG

i have the plastic bumpers & i HAVE to have a front plate in California
I have asked Dodge to find me a license plate bracket, they stare at me like i was insane. Someone just drilled 2 holes for a bracket to attach to, & the dealers just put 2 fat screws through the plate & screw them into the foam behind the plastic outer layer
