    Its actually funny because when I registered my 95 Toyota Supra , they gave me 1 plate. I was about to turn around and ask about it but then i would just ruin it. So i walked off

    Make a bracket that bolts to the front skid plate bolts and extends up in front of the bumper. No holes in the bumper, plate on front.

    In Cali they also require front plates. I have never ran one on my truck for 5 years and the PO never ran it since he bought it in 2004 and we have never been pulled over before. Just dont drive crazy and the police wont really care. I do have the front plate in the truck just in case though.

    I have never gotten a warning in my entire life, probably close to 18 tickets (unfortunately). You have some luck.

    Yes they are. Also, your LP frame cannot cover the word TEXAS.
