Hi all, I just ordered a pair of bumper plugs for my 2012 R/T Classic and was just wanting to make sure that there are only 2 holes from the factory/dealer front tag holder before I remove it and find out I need another pair. Can anyone verify the number of holes or does it depend???

Thank you!!!:smile:

My experience is that the dealer may have drilled 4 holes even when 2 is all that was needed (what happened to me). Best bet is just pull the plate holder off and look. Word of warning. Those plate holders collect dirt/sand. You may find an obnoxious scuff ring around the plate holder.

I was so disgusted that I just left the plate holder on, even though my state doesn't require a front plate. Couple years after I got the car, I hit a deer and demolished the front end. When they replaced the front bumper, I had them leave the plate holder off, so now I have a clean slick front bumper with no holes.

Not sayin' you should go out and hit a deer at 60MPH like I did, but it worked for me.....

All four holes were drilled on mine also and I was able to compound out the lines that were left after the holder came off.

Same - 4 holes. Bought from a new Ohio dealer, and I'm in Indiana. It was a NOS 2017 I bought in 2018, so for the price, four bumper plugs wasn't a deal breaker.

I only had 2 holes and the dirt wasn't too bad! However, there are marks left by the holder that I can't get off. What type of compound did you use to remove the marks?

You can also find the correct size "Christmas tree" fastener, and paint the heads
