great, I guess I'll have to weld a spot on the license plate studs so they can't get the nuts off

wantsa311, out of curiosity did you get a new plate yet or check into it? I'm just wondering if they charge you $10 for a replacement or the $75/$200 for a new one?

There are people out there who would steal the shoes off your feet.
I remember when this happened to you the last time....FYI, I cut the trailer plug off and hard wired a 7 way round right to the trailer wires. Now it's always there and if someone steals that they won't be able to use it anyway.

Your real vulnerable if the tag just got renewed for the year. They know they have 12 months available before they need to look again. I think they make a nut and screw kit with an adapter to put on and off.

At $200 for a trailer plate I'm not surprise they are being ripped off. Now the wart-faced cow in Lansing is considering a renewal fee for those "permanent" plates we all had to buy. Remember, she said they were permanent, but didn't say they were only going to be paid for just once.
