    They would have to. There are quite a few states that require tags on the front and rear of the vehicle.

    I think what he's saying is that the plate mounts directly to the bumper and he wants a plastic mount like the OBS's. My 07 needs one also, I don't like having the plate screwed right to the chrome.

    I think he is wrong.

    Call any dealership in Ontario, Canada. There will plenty in stock, as legally it can't leave the lot until the front plate is hanging on it.

    Yes, that is what I am saying. I went to the DEALERSHIP and asked for the mounting hardware for the 2011 Silerado LT crewcab and the representative tapped around his computer for a few minutes before informing me that, "GM doesn't make mounting hardware for your model, you may have to check on some after market parts." That is what the dealership told me. Ok?

    If you have information on how I may obtain the mounting hardware, would you kindly share it? Thanks.

    In Mississippi, we are required to mount our license plates to the rear, so no one really makes a big deal about a front plate mount

    So I'm gathering that I can use the same 2008 mounting hardware on my 2011? That would make lots of sense lol, since the body style is the same.

    i would never trust a salesman at a dealership to know $hit about cars. Those guys are there to make sales, not to be gearheads
