Front license plate mount

I just purchased my liberty and where I live ,AZ, does not require front plates. However, I'll soon be moving to another state that does require front plates. It pains me to think of drilling permanent holes into the front bumper. Is this how all plates are mounted on your cars? I don't have a brush guard to mount to, so that option is out. I've got 6 weeks to figure it out.

Thanks

Don't know of anyone here running anything unique. In Jersey, we need them on our front and rear bumper.
Mine is mounted on my Mopar light bar.

My KK was originally in NY where it is required to have a plate on the front. The holes aren't that bad and wouldn't be that noticeable if I didn't put a JEEP plate on front.

Im pretty sure unless you added a brush guard or something similar.. You're going to have to put holes in your bumper.

I lived in NYC for five years without a front plate on. Never had a problem. I believe it's a "fix it" ticket if you're stopped.

I live in Ohio, where we are required to run a front plate. I can't stand having a front plate on my jeep.
Here is a pic of the holes that are in my bumper. Not real easy to see.
I carry my bracket and plate with me just in case I get pulled over.

I have holes in my front bumper, they hide pretty easy. Go to O'Reillys using your paint code get a touch up stick, paint 2 license plate screws and install them. This will cover the holes very well

That's a great idea! I think I will do that myself.

Thanks

He's talking about this. Pretty nice option but very pricey. Cheapest I have found there was $496.00 plus shipping



You can mount your plate on this verses drilling the holes on the bumper but you would still have to install rivets to install this bull light bar.
