    Is the rear bumper on the other pickup in the moody hill video homemade? Does that guy have a thread somewhere? I really like the look of it.

    So i have always wanted to do this...W have to run a front plate in CO. I have been lucky to not get a ticket but have been pulled over once for it. So i figure id make my own bracket.

    This is where it started.
    Maglight clamps. $6 a pair.
    [​IMG]
    Scrap aluminum
    [​IMG]
    I cut it up and sanded it up.
    [​IMG]
    mounted the clamps and cut off the extra screw sticking out.
    [​IMG]
    I pulled it all apart to paint it but just as it got dry i remembered my buddy gave me another type of carbon look wrap. I had to try it and i will stock to 3m

    [​IMG]
    Had some Jazzy left over bolt caps from my lexus plate frames so i used em..Going to put a frame on it just dunno what yet.
    [​IMG]
    Done and on.

    I love the small little stuff.

    OH!!! So tonight i went and got a new hood for the truck. Mines aftermarket and fits like crap. The neighbor kids welcomed me to the neighborhood with a huge dent in it so i have been hunting a mint OEM one. Well i scored one today and while i was there the guy was looking at my truck..He asked if i knew anyone who wanted some fiberglass fenders...I snatched those up too. $250 and i had a set of new glass fenders and a mint OEM hood no dings.

    I saved this thread to read it fully b/c I thought it would be great and then POW - the maglights clip solves my California front license plate issue instantly and I cannot thank you enough! I have allpro's on the ornage truck and been fretting over this for months!

    killer truck BTW

    Seeing these trucks and checking out your build really makes me want to go out to Colorado...
