    Quick question
    I am looking at putting a Westin bull bar w/ Skid plate on my 2008 Taco and I was wondering since I live in Co and I must have a front license plate will I need to relocate my front plate in order to stay legal? Thanks in advance for the help....

    You already know the answer to this question.



    I'm a cop, driving down the road. I see you. I know state requires you to display a front license plate. If I don't see it, I will pull you over. How simple does it get? The letters of your plate need to be clearly visible, and they will need to see any expiration tags as well. If they can't, you are illegal. Its a very simple law that all states have. It applies just the same to making sure your license plate is clear of snow buildup during the winter. You can be pulled over for not making it visible.

    I would say you are lucky that you haven't gotten pulled over yet. Most states require to to be "permanently affixed" or something similar.
    Glad it's worked out for you this far.

    Glad PA doesn't need that crap on the front. I don't understand the point of a plate there.

    Yeah New Mexico doesn't require it, it's great!! Although my sister has gotten pulled over in another state and the cop there almost gave her a ticket and tried to tell her NM did require it, I'm not one to say cops in general are stupid, but there are some who just shouldn't be cops.

    I told my dealer that if they drill thru my bumper I am going to order a different truck :)
    And for all the stickers and license plate holder in the rear... I asked them if they were going to give me money for endorsing their business and my sales guy scratched his head and said no. I said then I expect there will be no advertisements on it when I pick it up.
