front license plate bracket?

Shouldn't all new cars come with front plate brackets? Can't find mine. Bought it in NC, brought it back to Ohio.

Your dealer should have either put it on for you, if you asked for it that is, or it may be in the trunk or little compartment under the truck liner. It comes with the brackets and all the screws.

Catch me if you can...........

All cars come with them and are mounted by the dealer. Did you check in your trunk (especially the wheel well)? If not, contact your dealer.

P.S. When you get the bracket, I would not let anyone drill into your bumper. Install it using 6" toggle bolts through the bottom grill (with the bracket upside down). Here is the installation thread:

It varies from state to state if front tag is required,
But yes, all Challengers come with a front license plate bracket but it's installed during dealer prep at their discretion.

Many owners prefer not to have the front bracket installed for cosmetic reasons, uglies up the front end,

(My dealer filled in the four drilled holes and repainted the bumper or it was going to be a deal-breaker).

I didn't get a front license plate bracket with my car, but I'm guessing since PA doesn't require a plate the dealer just didn't bother installing it.

My Challenger did not come with a front tag bracket so I 'borrowed' one from my wife's 300--fits perfectly. Needed ft tag for my Patriot Guard Riders license plate. Don't know what I'll do when I FINALLY get my 100% Service Connection from the VA--then I'll get FREE rear tag and most folks pay the extra $25.00 for a front tag????
