    1st-on the back one of the bolts doesn’t want to go in all the way, thus the plate is going to rattle.

    2nd, front plate hangs below the bumper some and wondering what options are out there.

    You will not like this but.... after trying the factory bolt holes, two sided tape, magnets and I can't remember what else, I was DONE with the rattling from my rear plate. Used four self taping screws and mounted that bit@#h solid. No more rattle. I live is So Cal and my Runner sleeps in a garage so rust is not a huge concern for me.

    I realize you ordered the silicone frames, but was there a reason you didn’t try shorter bolts for the rear if the ones you had were bottoming out?

    One worked, the other will go all the way in, it’s just a lot of work and doesn’t seem right. I also picked up some new bolts to use once the frames show up.
