    I'm filling mine with screws. They're holding my front license plate on.


    Okay, I'll probably get reamed for that one, but I just couldn't resist.:D

    I got my first 4x4 in 1972...haven't been without one! I still like Chrome!
    Here in Kentucky front plates are not required, so dealers don't drill them out. Mine came from the factory not drilled.

    I don't have a front license plate on my Taco. I want to put a plate on the front. Do i have to drill the bumper where the holes are for a plate? If so what should i use to drill the holes with?
