    Here's my take on mounting front bracket. 2 4 1/4" x 3/4" black PVC pipe, 2 1/4 " x 6" toggle bolts. Cost 9 bucks and is no where near any paint. I notched out stock bracket to sit on spltter. Thoughts anyone? IMG_20151010_161207812.jpg IMG_20151010_162645580.jpg

    Looks good, however does it restrict air flow? That would be my only concern.

    I don't think so, if so very little, but ill definitely keep an eye on it, the town I live in has several rookie cops and they're giving out 250 dollar tickets so I had to do something and drilling into my car is NOT an option

    My way fixed 2 issues, obviously mounting the plate and I "touched" a curb with the splitter and of course it left a small mark, I no longer pull in to parking spots!!!

    LOL I never pull in with a car. I've had plenty of front mounted intercoolers in various cars and learned the hard way. :) Even my Titan makes it hard to pull in as I cannot see the corners as well as I like.

    I mounted mine like this. Does not touch paint or the spoiler so it can be removed without a trace.

    Charger440rt, can you post a closer pic? I assume for the bottom you used toggle bolts, but I can tell what you used for the top. Also, what license plate bracket are you using? I would like to try to create the same setup.

    Thanks
