I would have got one but my bumper covers like an inch of the bottom of the plate so you couldnt see the USAMustangs part of the cover.

Theres not enough room on his front bracket because the new texas plates are just a smidge too big and I had to kinda wedge his on the front bracket...

all you have to do to fix that is get a set of snips and trim it down a little...then you can make it fit whatever you want.

i had to do the same thing. i actually got to use my bench grinder. however, i am still having problems which are unique to my license plate design. karen's and shannon's all worked perfect.

yep...my original plate that i got in 2000 is physically bigger than the new texas plates.

i had to bench grind mine down to get it to fit in the license plate holder. i'm also going to have to modify the little tabs to make it work. still working on mine.

however, karen's, shannon's, etc.. all installed perfectly because they are the newer smaller texas plates.
