    I am trying to gauge the interest on a liecence plate bracket that does not require you to drill into your bumper and will be completely bolt on. I do not have pictures yet as I will be making on for my truck soon. The cost to make one is still unknown so I can not give you a price. Obviously the lower the price the better but could you please

    VOTE ONLY IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESETED AND VOTE FOR THE PRICE YOU WOULD BEWILLING TO PAY.

    I am not trying to steal your guys hard earned money but keep in mind these will be hand made by myself and a machinist friend and will be made of metal not cheap china plastic that cost 2.5cents to make

    If you got me 5 years ago, before I drilled my front bumper, I'd pay probably $30 - 40.

    I suggest having it work with aftermarket bumpers and light bars. I know there's a lot of guys on here that have those.

    Fortunately, I live in a state that does not require a front tag.

    stupid that any state does IMO

    After 6 years of not having a front plate, I got a parking ticket for it in San Francisco. It was either pay the $115 fine or put a plate on and pay $10 for a fix it ticket.

    I still refuse to drill my bumper so I zip tied the front plate to the lower grille and let a cop sign it off.

    Oops.... Voted before I read the post.
    I voted $30 because compared to currently available drill-type brackets I think that's a fair price point, but I've already drilled my bumper so I would not be interested in getting in on a buy unless I get a new bumper or Taco.
