    More then I can afford
    Wife ordered personalized plates for the truck along with a witty plate frame.
    Problems:
    The aftermarket backup camera would cover the top of said witty plate frame.
    Witty plate frame also only has provisions to be screwed on from the top, aftermarket flip up plate holder on bumper only has screw holes on the bottom.
    Solution: Over-engineer and fabricate a plate mount:
    IMG_3377.jpg

    Step one: Make template

    IMG_3376.jpg

    Step two: Cut out and test template

    IMG_3380.jpg

    Step three: Transfer markings to random piece of aluminum that I have a stack of
    IMG_3382.jpg

    Step four: Get so busy cutting and fitting that you forget to take any more pictures. Process involved cutting, grinding, mocking up, grinding some more and finally a couple of pop rivets to secure aluminum panel to existing license plate mount.

    Result: Plate and mount fits, camera fits and works, camera barely clears the tailgate when down. Wife is happy that she can see her witty license plate frame.
    Eventually I will paint said bracket and tap it or put some nutserts in it to replace the zip ties holding the camera on.

    Also:
    These showed up just in time for our day trip.
    IMG_3409.jpg

    Put them on the roof (now I am officially one of the cool kids with stuff on my roof rack), loaded up the truck and headed up in search of white stuff.

    Adventure Dog didn't quite know what to make of the cold white stuff, 10 years old and she had never seen snow before.

    And started getting in the holiday spirit.

    Got my QuikFix spacers in, just wanted to give props. The seat position is actually much more natural after install. Better line of site and i just got stuck on I-10 for 4 hours, lol! Usually my knees would be killing me after that, but not near as bad as usual.

    Is there a hitch behind that license plate/spring loaded license plate holder?
