You can roll into an inspection station with a K24 swap, a supercharger, race header, aftermarket injectors, and pretty much any other mod you want, and drive out with a fresh sticker and people want to get bent out of shape about this? Move to California, make one aftermarket mod to your car and see how that works out for you.

Just put a front plate on your car and move on with life, LOL.

this isnt some new law. Texas has had this law forever. Some cops are just nicer than others about it cause they own cars with nice front bumpers too

I carry mine in the trunk with the bolts in the holes up front. Get pulled over, claim I didn't know, say I just took it off and it's in the trunk, hope he's cool and let's me off

But yea, haven't had a plate on my cars for the past 5 years, never a prob. Only time I hear about people getting a ticket for it is if they are at a car meet that gets the cops called or if they stupidly have it in the front windshield. Having it up there makes it blatantly obvious that its not up front and draws attention to you
