By any chance do you have a picture of this installed? I’m interested but if I get around to using my flareside bed it won’t be with the stock bumper and I’m thinking this bracket may place the license plate behind the bumper I want to use... also did you name a price for these?

Hi Ford

$35 includes shipping.

The bracket bolts to the lip on the bed, so any bumper can be used.
Designed to be lower than the bumper for that reason.

Let me know if you need a better photo..

Thanks Ron, let me do some checking regarding my bumper placement.

The one I want to use was hand made by a guy at US Forest Service where my dad worked. It was the district ranger’s special order 1966 flareside. My dad got the truck at auction and owned it until rust cancer claimed it. He kept the bumper and had it put on his 1968 F250. I recently sold the truck but I kept the bumper. It has some sentimental value, and it is a darn good bumper. Does not look like much in the picture, but it’s very well made, solid, but not overkill. It belongs on a flareside. Of course I need to change it to fit the wider bullnose frame. I’m just worried the bumper will cover the license plate using the correct bracket.

Darin - How quickly do you need it?  Perhaps have Ron ship it to me and you pick it up in Sept?

Ron - We'd talked about displaying things, or at least pictures of things, that you make at the show.  Might this be one of them?

Got the bracket to day and about an hour later had it test fitted to the truck.

Best picture I could get as I cannot get it outside at this time, rear wheelsareoff.

Looks like it bolted right on and belongs.

Ron did a great job making it.
After I drilled the 2 mounting holes it bolt right on and looks good.
I had to pull the plate off my Gremlin as I could not find any of my others to show it mounted.

After I drilled the mounting holes I got thinking I should have used a nut cert on the bracket.
When I mount it for good I will use security bolts and lock nuts if the nut certs don't fit as I seen posted a member had one stolen off his truck.

Now I have to find the plate light but I have time to look for one and hear they are not too hard to find as they were used on other models.

Jein.  (Ask Jochen.)  The same socket may have been used, but the wiring harness it was attached to was different.  You can see that on the new page I created just for you: Electrical/Lighting/Tag Lights.

But in the HELP section at the parts store they may have that socket and you can graft it into your wiring.

I believe the Ford Granada used the same light assembly.

That's what I seen posted also.
As long as the light has the housing & socket the pig tail I am not worried as I have to graft the rear tail light wiring to the rear Style Side truck harness anyway.

Gary, thanks I will check it out.

Then again some other light may catch my eye that I can use LOL

Gary,

Would you have the full part number for the housing 13550?
That socket I can get at the parts store. I used 2 of them on my custom dash on my Javelin.
Thanks

Dave - Isn't the part number shown on the Part #'s tab?

Darin - If Dave figures it out maybe I can pick them up or or them in here and have them with the bracket when you get here.
