just leave your front plate and bracket in your truck and when you get pulled over say "it fell off and you were just on your way home from picking the plate up from a buddies."

You can be ticketed in certain states for the plate on the dash, like NJ, It would be a ticket for improper display.

yeah. but my buddy had a lincoln LS with a body kit and everything and he got it from michigan, where a front plate wasn't needed. So he went and bought a legit front plate bracket and everything and was on his way home and he got pulled over. He told the cop, "hey i just got this car from michigan and so i wanted to get the proper stuff before i started drilling holes in this bumper." the cop understood and let him go. So i guess as long as you keep your plate and a front plate bracket in a plastic bag on the passenger side floor or something you can always be like "i just got this from a buddy cause mine fell off the other day or something like that.." haha.
