Question License Plate Bracket 2012 Ram 3500

The new trucks just seem to have the two plastic nut inserts to attach a front license plate to the bumper - leaves the plate rather vulnerable. I checked with the a dealer and there is nothing available from chrysler. Anyone know where a guy can get a good bracket/mount for a front license plate?

I asked my service dept. about a front plate kit too, nothing. I bought 1 for my 05 Dodge Magnum and installed it. It was actually for a huge number of vehicles if I remember correctly, wonder if 1 for an older Ram could be used? I just run without it for now, I live in Maine which is a front plate state. I have a Disabled Veteran plate and honestly they dont even bother me, my buddy who is Chief of Police in the old town we used to live in told me its kind of a given they just dont bother unless they see an unsafe violation with Veterans. Which I am truly thankful for.

I asked my dealer about a bracket for the front of my Sport. He says there is none and that you just screw into the dimples on the bumper. I'm not going to mess up my Sport by doing that, but when I looked at my build sheet a few days later I noticed it specifically has this listed:
MDAS Front License Plate Bracket

That tells me there is indeed a bracket for Sport models. Guess I'm going back to the dealer and ask what happened to mine.

On my Super Bee they wanted us to drill into the front fascia to mount the license plate. I was not willing to do so and after much searching I found this place: http://www.skenedesign.com/FPBracket/Choose.shtml , they are a tad expensive but it does work.
