Plate Mounting

Alright. I know some of you are going to tell me to search, but I have and have been unable to find anything relevant. My license plate bracket was knocked off my front bumper with the assistance of a tree stump. Before I just go buy a plain bracket I was curious to see what others have done for mounting their front plate. I have a 94' Cherokee sport. I have a full brush guard with a winch in the middle. Any ideas are great.

Had to post this a second time. Accidentally put it in the Technical forum

I should've mentioned that this is going to be an off-road vehicle so I need to place it somewhere I won't bend it too badly. Cops out here can be touchy

I've seen pics of them on the grill. I know it blocks air. Does it have to he displayed while on trails?

I'm hoping the link works. This is my front end to give you an idea. If the link doesn't work I can't seem to upload photos

That's where the mag light holders work. They just snap on and off and gold tight.

Does your bumper have a front hitch receiver? If so you could weld some plate to some square tube so you could just pull the plate out with a hitch pin before you start wheeling.

Rubiprime and motor charge have both got great ideas.
Even if your bumper doesn't have the receiver a welder could install one.
Motor actually gave me a new project idea with at suggestion. Make an extension to protect the fair lead.
