You can buy license plate holders that snap into roller or hause fairleads from most 4x4 shops. They're also made to hinge up.

Yes it came like that from rocky road and I think it works better than the one in RR webpage.

Thanks.

I will buy the plate holder for going out of town but none of my cars have front plate now.

It looks a lot more beefy than the pic on the site. How much did the install run you? Assuming you didn't do it yourself.

That's awesome. I see modification made to the front bumper to mount the winch, but was there a kit you purchased, or did you have it done by a local shop? Do tell

just wanted to confirm that you essentially bought what they had on the RRO page with the winch and whatnot. Good to see it all pull together. You gonna start a thread with purty pictures and all that??
