I doubt there's a lot of Explorers with it there, but there are tons of Chargers and Challengers.
The reason being that nobody wants holes drilled in their bumper cover for the license plate bracket, so they attach brackets to the bottom of the bumper cover, and the Dodge cars have the sensor unit for adaptive cruise control and emergency braking positioned in the center of the lower grill so you have to mount the bracket to the side to keep the plate out of the way. Then it became trendy and everybody puts them off to the side even if they don't have adaptive cruise control. Possibly because it's also reminiscent of people that have their plates mounted on a bracket to their tow hook on their "race" cars, which would be attached to the frame rail on one side or the other.
The other reason I put it to the side is that the plate wouldn't be straight up and down in the center, it would be tilted slightly back facing up and the toll road cameras already get a clear enough picture of it without any extra help.
I'm surprised that there is not more overall activity on the Forum for the same reason. It appears to be the same or perhaps less than before....................................
I am actually surprised this page doesn't get updated more with everyone needing to be at home right now.

2016 Limited update
Just for those who are interested:
I have installed Magnaflow catback exhaust (part# 19274), K&N intake (part# 77-2575KS), and a Livernois 91 octane high performance tune. This has changed my whole outlook on the performance of the 3.5 NA AWD grocery go getting tank! If you're looking for subtle gains in performance, as well as fuel economy, this is one way to go. She sounds like a beast at WOT in tunnels and under bridges! Now just to figure out if I will lower with springs or bags. Hope these part numbers and information are beneficial to someone. Thanks!
