    Looking to replace the dealership plate frame with something different, or maybe none at all. Any ideas as to what would look best on a white truck?

    What are some of you guys using?

    Here are a couple in mind...

    Front or rear? I'm not using a frame in the front and I've got a college frame for the back. Clarkson University Hockey!! :D

    Out of the 2 you listed, I like the dark gray one, looks sharp!

    I was thinking front and back. I just think it looks unfinished without a frame.

    Speaking of which, I was looking at a personalized plate, would something stating the type of truck be silly/corny? Like:

    TACOTRD
    YOTACO

    Just can't think of anything clever...

    How many times do you need to have the TRD letters on your truck, maybe you could put TRD on vanity plates :D, Just giving you a bad time.

    I like the minimalist look, less is better :rolleyes:, I don't use any frames myself, I don't even run a front plate.

    If you have to have a frame, I say some plain ones would be fine.

    I like the weathertech plate frames for a clean look. Just a minimalist clean frame to cover the edges of the plate and the attachment screws.

    i dont know if its illegal everywhere. But in az if the top of the frame covers any of the the ARIZONA on the plate its illegal. So just make sure you get one thats thin up top.
