Well I am one of those members whose wife drives an Escape (2010). That is an excellent mod suggestion and great set of how to pics. Here are some reps coming your way.

I'd still like to know why my window sticker and build sheet both show a front license plate bracket, but none was given me with the truck? Dealer says there is no such bracket, but why would it be listed and given a part code if it didn't exist?

I too was frustrated with not getting a proper plate bracket with my new 2012 Express. The modified Escape bracket looks great, but I picked up a new Challenger bracket from my dealership for $7.00 and it fits quite nicely upside down. In checking with with the build sheet and my parts guy, the supplied license plate bracket kit consists of 2 screws in a plastic bag for painted front facia.

I finally got an explanation for this from someone at Chrysler. The part designation on our window stickers and build sheets does indeed refer to the 2 screws despite being referred to as a "bracket." What a crock. I'm glad I no longer live in Kommiefornia because there's no way I'm screwing a bare plate onto my new Sport bumper like I had to with my 2000 Sport.

Yeah I took my truck to the carwash and the same thing happened with my license plate. How in the hell do you bend one side of the license plate or bend it at all?!?! No respect for another man's property, oh well that's what I get for not doing myself. Good job on the license plate holder!!

Default My apologies!

I should have supplied a part number. According to the invoice from my parts guy, the part number is 68027815AA. The list price was $11 and my net was 7.26 plus tax. I was originally going to trim it, as it is not a perfect fit. But I put it as low as possible without showing the original dimple holes. Using all 4 mounting points and applying pressure in the middle, it does fit the contour of the front facia quite nicely. Plus, it's a Mopar product! I priced it on E-Bay and it can be bought for 10-30 dollars, but shipping usually adds an additional 6-10. Hope this helps.

So if I buy this part for my '12 Laramie it will fit? Will I have to drill any new holes? (Hope not).. It uses the existing holes in my bumper?
