My front license was screwed into the bumper when I picked it up. I looked at my build sheet and I should have been provided a bracket. I showed this to the dealer and he got one ordered in and put on.
Look for "MDAS Front License Plate Bracket" on your build sheet.
Most cars ship from the factory with the front plate holder in a bag. In states where no front plate is required, buyers usually don't want the holes drilled in their front bumper for the plate. I'm letting my dealer know that drilling holes in my front bumper will make me very unhappy, just before my new JGC is to be delivered. I've had this happen before, with the dealer putting their dealer ad plate in it. I was not a happy camper! Just let your dealer know you will need it, as you are in NJ. I'm sure he'll have one for you.

Well, I'm sorry I threw out the one that (unfortunately) was on my Jeep at delivery (it came from Long Island in a dealer trade) or I would have gladly just given it to you. But jacko15is correct, it should have come with your vehicle. Contact the dealer you purchased from and ask them for it. You should be able to get it for no charge. In the mean time, I've had to deal with creating some plugs for the darn holes in my bumper...

Well I called the dealer yesterday afternoon to find out the cost of a new one and they are on back order, but the parts guy said "let me check somewhere else.... oh yes, I can get one, it's $26 and change." Then I called my salesman, who said... "Oh you need a front plate holder, yeah we have those, come in anytime and I'll give you one".
So I guess I was right, they take them out of the cars as they are not needed in PA and sell them to anyone who needs one.
I just got '12 GC Overland that I purchased in the god forsaken state of Mississippi, but i'm a WA state resident and am trying to find the OEM front bracket, when i was at my local dealer he looked it up by VIN and said all it listed was the correct bolts to stick through the bumper, but not a bracket.
...now i know there is an OEM bracket available, why his database was not showing it was beyond me,
