Front Licence Plate Holder

Just bought a new 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a custom front bumper. Unfortunately, I live in Ontario and require a front plate. Any ideas/suggestions/companies that may be able to help me with finding one that looks decent and performs well. I'm new to the forum so please don't be too harsh I tried finding it on the forum but had no luck. Also, if anyone knows of any cheaper sites to find them on that would be great too.

Thanks

Do you have a roller fairlead for a winch on the front? Is there a hoop or stinger on the bumper?

You mentioned a custom front bumper... is it made of metal? Would 2 self tapping screws do the trick? That's what's holding on my front vanity plate and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

You want a winch. You need a winch. You KNOW you need a winch. So get a winch.

Then make a winch rope cover out of your license plate holder.






Gotta mount the front license plate somehow. You want to be legal, right? Gotta get a winch. This is what you tell Mrs. RKells6.


I got your back, Bro!

OP never said if he had a winch or not. But if he does....Maglite flashlight clips fit perfectly on a roller fairlead.
Got mine for $5 bucks about 4 years ago. Just bolt them to your plate.
They have lasted over twice as long as that brand new Smitty XRC8 in the first pic.

A couple of properly placed rivet nuts for bolting the tag on would also work. I'm guessing for 1/4" bolts. I did that with my aftermarket bumper before I got a winch (and before I got my tags changed to a state where they only require a rear tag).

Thanks for all the help, zip tied it for now in the slot for the winch until I buy a winch and then I think I'll go with the flip up holder that attaches to the roller Fairlead.
