custom front bumper plate.

How do I go about hanging a custom plate to the front bumper, since there aren't any pre drilled holes for the plate to be mounted?

Just drill pilot holes and use self tapping screws - make sure the drill is smaller than the screw! Here's my plate - bracket took three holes.

Do you know where to purchase chrome side mirrors with day time running led lights. Similar to the ones the audi and mercedes have. i think on my nitro it could add even more styling to it.

You can find the mirror covers on ebay. Search: dodge nitro chrome. None of these come with lights, but they could be added very easily. Since our mirrors are heated, it would be very easy to run a wire through the mirror mount.
