Just got a ROW 110. It has an awesome foreign license plate (rear). Curious what others have done to keep these on, and ALSO have a US plate. Has anyone done this? Where did you place your US plate? Share pics? Click image for larger version

Foreign plate in the front, us plate in the rear. IMO it doesn't look right with both plates on the rear. Congrats on the 110!

I left my foreign plate in place on rear and mounted the US plate low (below hitch). Works for me.

I like both foreign plates on front and back. Showcases the linage of a ROW or exMOD. I ultimately put the US plate on the lamp side and moved the UK plate to other side.

I've ran the UK plate for 3 years, have the TN plate inside the truck. Nobody has ever said anything.

If it's RHD then likely the cops are pulling you over because a sing along isn't working lol.

Most don't care

Very common especially on cars where the owner took delivery in Europe, used the car there before it was shipped here.

There isn't enough space to display both if you have a rear tire carrier. I do know someone who has the US plate installed on the right side of the rear bumper.
The 110 draws enough attention, especially around a military base so I put mine in the stock location where it can be lit at night, and left the Euro plate on the front.

In my opinion, it's a bit douchey to have both plates. I immediately think of BMW drivers who have the Euro plate underneath the US plate. It screams, "Look at me. I'm special."

I'd say, just run the US plate and hang the Euro plate in your garage.

Fair point and I am with you on those (and VW, Audi, etc.) where the car is NAS wearing a repro Euro plate, but I can see it where the plates are authentic to the vehicle.

I do the same thing, check state laws. Some do not require running both on antique vehicles.

A FR-2A plate could also bring anger against the truck!

The F is the country code for France.
2A is an older code for the South of Corsika? Ajaccio instead of Bastia.

I'm not quite sure about it.

i guess i am "douchey" as i have both plates front and rear. PO had put holes for modern plates. i would much rather have just the original SXF plates. btw, being a woman, i am okay with douching.

I've been running the foreign plate for 2 weeks. State plates are in the cubby. No issues so far, even with cops driving behind me.
