    NEW PRICE $16.99 SHIPPED. Better small 3/16" thick aluminum front plate holder. Made to replace the big bulky original equipment bulky unattractive plastic bracket p/n 75101-04011. My original bracket cut grooves on the top side of my bumper cover and cannot fix the grooves. Wish I would have done this the day I bought my truck. The quicker you remove the oem the less chance of damage to your cover. No drilling. No grille removal. Simply remove the factory bracket and install this one using the holes drilled by the dealer to hold the oem bracket. Includes new stainless self tapping screws, stainless license plate mounting screws and rubber isolators to mount between the new holder and bumper cover. If you do not have the original front plate bracket then this will require drilling 2 holes in the bumper cover for the self tapping screws. Just returned from a road trip and the front plate is extremely rigid.

    Thanks I appreciate it. I was mad when I saw the damage the oem did to my bumper cover. Can't do anything to fix it without putty or paint work. Just wish I knew this would happen when I bought the truck. I figure anyone with a newer truck could fix this early to prevent it. How deep would the grooves be in 3-4 years ? I actually made mine out of 1/8" material but realized that thicker provides more threads for the plate screws. Mine is very rigid at 1/8" but that only provided 3.2 mm of thread contact thus the better 3/16" material.

    Agree......who woulda thought it would do that. Good thing is you caught it before it went further and came up with a better alternative!
