+1, It's a Jeep, it looks fine with a front plate.

What about paying a tint shop to make a photo replica of your front plate on 3m film and attach it to your front bumper?

Could satisfy all issues

I imagine that could be consider forgery, depending on the state, or whatever law there is about copying an official government document. Same issue if you were to photo copy your DL and carry that with you. It would also have to be reflective. Intriguing.

Ohio = yes law, but..
I didn't have one on my old ZJ because it came from Indiana. Never put one on and never got hassled. Never got a ticket it in either.

Debating leaving it off my new one.

Anybody in Ohio have a bad experience with NFP?

Required in VA. I've never had one on my other car and have been pulled over for other reasons and the LEO mentioned it, but did not give me a ticket for that. I do have one on my GC.

Just check your local law but its just a front license plate on a jeep (not a big deal in my opinion) and not a high end sports car. My buddy in his tacoma had his in his windshield for about a year displayed due to a new front bumper he put on, cost him around $90 bucks cause he didnt want to put it back on the bumper.

If its the law, it has ot be followed, any good officer will know this. Lukily here we are only required to have the rear plates. But if it was mandatory id slap it on just to get them off my back.

Hell on my Tj, i kept the plate real low on the back bumper, i even used a hammer to bend the province's slogan underneath the bumper, to minimize the size of the plate. They never gave me problems. It how ever did cause a problem when i went offroading, i found my plate all mangled at the end lol.

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,

I'm thinking its part # 68102165AA

Idaho requires front plates. I've passed many officers with hardly a second look. I would have done nothing but it came with the plate holder and I wanted to take the truck home that day.

My weekend car is a BMW M3, and here in NY they will never pull me over for not running a front plate, however meter maids have a field day with me. So I created a velcro plate that I put on when I park. The jeep im not going to bother with, too much hassle.

No front plate is PC for a stop here in CO. You probably won't get a ticket but everything else had better be up to date.

BUT it looks 100% better without that ugly plate on the front.

I've done that in the past. The salesmans jaw hung open when he saw I was not taking delivery and was leaving after seeing the car with the plate mounted to the front. They got me another exact vehicle in 2 days, this time without the ugly bracket/plate mounted on the front. Next time I bet he will listen to the customer better.
