I have dinged my license plate a time or two. Having my wife help me makes it even worse. Might have to check into this.

I'm with ya Brian. I went the full gadget route and installed a 3.5" LCD panel in my cab, with a 2-way color A/V controller, and a reverse image color camera. Looks cool as hell, but mighty functional including blind spot imaging when I back up so I don't accidently run over something. Comes on automatically when I put the truck in reverse. There's a bunch of them on the market, from $200 on up.

Ya you just back up into your other cars

Maybe if you had that then you would not have had to put both of them in the shop for repair

Who cares, the more dents in the plate the harder it is to read
