Any suggestions for mounting the front license plate on a 2008 Ford Expedition? There are 3 holes showing, but they are backed with by a solid metal plate. Do I drill or can anyone suggest a bracket/mount that will work.
swing by your dealership or eBay. Ford uses a plastic mounting plate on the Expy.

I am sure by now you have figured out a solution to this problem but it took me two days to give up on trying to do it the correct way and just did it my way. My way will probably work just as good if not better.
I've never heard of anyone purposely trying to drill their bumper for the front plate! I would rock with out it, its sooo much nicer and classier looking in my opinion
You won't be able to get an inspection sticker in states like Mass without it. I'd rather have left it off... Pilot hole through the bumper cover and steel behind it, then self tapping screws were the easiest and most secure way of installing it for me. I bought my Ex in Michigan where no front plate is required. The dealership gave me the plate bracket, but I had to install it when I got home. Old thread...
