    Ernest,

    Just an update. I ordered and received my no drill bracket from you a few months ago. Well, my Taco arrived yesterday and my dealer honored my wishes and did not drill the front plate holes. Woo hoo! Just need to get my real plates and I'll be installing. Can't wait. Here's a photo of mine.

    And there's a discussion about you and your product going on over on Facebook. Check the "Toyota Tacoma Enthusiasts" group. I let them know you're over here. ;)

    Ordered mine and received notification this morning they have shipped. Can't wait to put them on.

    License plates arrived today and both my son and I rushed to install them using the no-drill license plate bracket from www.slybrackets.com

    For someone who is not mechanically inclined, the photos on the website coupled with the printed instructions which accompanied the brackets, were enough for this old guy to install them literally in 2 minutes. As advertised, it's sturdy and solid!

    Excellent job and cudos to www.slybrackets.com for such a fine product.

    Just a few different angles of Ernest's brackets. It took 1 minute to install both and am completely satisfied with how strong the hold once the plate is installed. Hopefully they hold up well in the New England winters.

    Finally got my plates from my dealer on Wednesday. Promptly installed my no-drill brackets and like everyone else has mentioned, these things are great. They're made solid. They snap in nice and snug and they're not going anywhere. I love them.

    And on my truck, they lower the plate the perfect amount so that it's visible in the opening of the bull bar.

    Thanks again Ernest! You've got a great product and thank you very much for making them for us. Now, if I could find something like it for my other car (which I've been driving around MD for over 5 years without a front plate).

    Bob

    How about a picture with the plate and the bull bar. I don't want to drive to Glen Burnie to see it. Thanks.

    Thank you, Bill!

    Often I see other Tacoma owners stop and look at my front plate probably wondering how it is not drilled into the bumper. Lol

    I've had this bracket on my truck for a complete central Alaskan winter, going on the second - it's seen temperatures below -40F and has been completely fine. I'm sure it will hold up to New England winters. IT's a great product and I can't promote it enough.

    I moved to a two plate state a couple months back after living in GA and NC for my entire life....just got my Democratic People's Republic of New Jersey (DPRNJ) plates today and was dreading drilling. Found this thread and just ordered! Thanks to you in Hawaii, and can't wait to get this in the mail!

    Wow, congrats on the move. That's like starting a brand new life. I know exactly how that feels. I moved to Hawaii when I was 13 and been here for 29 years now.
    Thank you very much for your purchase. Your bracket will ship first thing tomorrow morning.
