    Default Common thing?

    For those that have the 03-06 (or 07 classic) trucks, does your front license plate seem to have bent due to the bumper curvature and wind hitting it?

    Example:


    Now, my front license plate was also the front one on my old Dodge that was involved in a deer collission (linky of the Dodge), however there are two guys at work that also have this body style of Silverado, and they also have license plates that are bent just like mine (minus the other small dents from said deers head).

    In MI front plates aren't required so its not a common thing here, but I'm supprised that your trucks don't have plate holders on there...
