..... BTW, FYI, I had the whole bumper in my living room in pieces for 4
days while I figgrd the lite mounting routine.... I assure you that if you
want to use the holes for the license plate, you will have lite wobble unless
you run a bar from the metal brackets that mount to the bumper pistons.....
That is THE only place that is not "plastic," so yes you can use the plate
frame, but after being back there, there is NO support for stability, on the
backside of those holes are two clip nuts to hold the plate frame, lites it
was not designed for.... Figure something out from either the 4 bolts
holding the bumper pistons, or attach to the brackets where the bumper mounts
TO the pistons, those are the only lite-steady areas on the bumper.....
