well i had made one of them license plate holders that clip to my winch rollers form some asshat kid broke it and stole my front plate about 18 months ago.. i replace the plate just never put it back on again.

Best thing you can do is keep it in the Jeep with you at all times and if you get hassled for it, show that you have the plate on you.. Make up a story on the fly about how someone hit the front of your Jeep and broke off the hardware or something. It works. 9 times out of 10 they'll tell you just make sure you get it taken care of and go on their merry way.

I got one of those trick wrap-around license plate holders.
I didn't buy it at Quadratec ... I made it myself!

Towed something moderately heavy with it for the first time since the regear. Did good. Towed my finished project to sell for $1000 profit. Savvy shopping cart already full of goodies to come soon!

Thanks. Only had $50 in it. ($40 for a new battery.) This is how it looked when I got it. Gonna get a Savvy gas skid, lower control arms, front uppers (that will finish off all the control arms), anti-rock (if I can get an extra $100 on the next paycheck), and Currie steering from a local jeeper.
