    I just installed an N-Fab light bar on my Tacoma part # T124LB, I was wondering since Texas requires a front liscence plate, has anyone here in Texas had any problem with the law? It doesn't cover the whole plate and no I haven't had any problems yet, but I just wanted to know if anyone with the same light bar that might have had problems. Thanks for all the responses.

    I've been running my Tacoma since new without a front plate at all with no issues with the law, going on 7 months. I live in North Texas and there's no shortage of small town cops round here that take traffic laws very seriously.

    I also notice quite a few other vehicles missing front plates.

    Colorado requires a front plate and I roll with my dirty constantly to the point it can't be read and I've had no issues. I think it will come down to a cop having a bad day and the wrong place at the wrong time.

    I have an N-Fab with the tabs for the plate. I left mine on the bumper because the holes were there. If the dealer had not drilled I would have looked at other options. I think it would look dumb mounted on light bar. As many vehicles as I see with vanities, none, and plates on dash I am not too worried.
