Front license plate bracket

2010 SAHARA

I'm looking for a plastic bracket/holder for my front plate (New Jersey)
It's held in right now with two bottom screws, but the plate always gets
bent going thru a wash. Looking for something to lock the top & bottom
of the plate in place. (STOCK BUMPER)

anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Don't worry Gashead, most of the people on here aren't jerks. There's just a few.

iThink the hello kitty crap was a way more over the top to be honest. At least I provided an answer.

Perhaps the is jerky - i'll give you that. I just thought the question/problem was going get harder with the odd detail that was left off the OP. Didn't happen; thought it was funny.

You gonna be ok?

Thanks for the responses. Especially the smart *** ones.
Perhaps I could have been more clear with my question.
I know I could screw in to the bumper with self tappers.
I have a liberty as well and it came with a wrap around plastic
plate holder assy. It wraps completely around the bumper without
screwing in to it. That is what I was looking for.
Sorry I took so long to respond, I was busy at work engineering
in my sheet metal shop. Fortunately we have never been busier.
Thanks for all the help
Oh and hey blk2000TJ my daughter loves your set up. I bet you get tons of compliments out on the trails.

Metal shop? You know how much stuff you could make? Fab up your own Plate holder, post it/market it and pay for mods you can't make.

Advanced Auto sells a license plate holder for around $5. Black plastic, it fits perfectly between the fog lights and centers real well from top to bottom on the bumper. Looks better than attaching plate to the bumper, which my dealer could not do close to level.
