Default Front License Plate Bracket

My new Ranger Sport 2WD does not have a front license plate bracket and I like the way it looks without one.

Question: Without the FLPB installed, there is a big gap that all sorts of crap could fly through and damage my AC con/radiator. Anyone ever had that problem, or would something big enough to do damage just rip the FLPB off anyway.

My friends with Honda Elements were always bitchin' about that happening on their Elements because of that big bumper opening.

Wonder why a FLPB did not even come with my Sport. It was the only one on the lot that did not have one listed on the window sticker.

Have not had a front plate in a long time. Never had a problem. I also installed a street scene bumper grille. It cover that hole up.

A cheap and easy solution would be to pick up some gutter mesh at a local home improvement store. It's light, so it conforms easy and will keep unwanted things from going through that big opening.
