Front license plate bracket

Any HELP would be great. Trying to find a front license plate bracket/holder I seen in the past you mount it without putting holes in your front bumper (you had to bend the front plate) and it looks kind of cool capered to the other brackets out there.

Test Drive, I too have an LT and I have the JacFab front plate bracket, I LOVE IT. and if you would rather, they also have a FLAT (non-bent) bracket as well, I personally wanted a flat one, as I have vanity plates and did NOT want to bent my plate. Their bracket is VERY VERY sturdy.....I love it.

SLP also makes a bracket similar to the one above, but (correct me if I'm wrong) I believe it is better suited for cars with a front lip.

I have not seen an SLP bracket in person, but I believe it hasn't been on the market very long from my research... You have to drill 2 additional holes in the bottom of the front bumper to attach it per the instructions here: http://www.pfyc.com/supportfiles/ca1152_install.pdf. Most likely because it appears to be made of a thinner material and needs the extra bolts to support itself.

Our current brackets do work with SOME aftermarket front GFX, but not all... We are currently working on one to work with the GM GFX that may also end up working for more aftermarket setups, and also the ZL1.

Good to know! I don't currently have a front plate. Haven't ever put it one and I have never been stopped on about a year and a half. But good to know there are options should I ever need one!

I've got the bent one and I'm wild over it.
The plate isn't actually bent, it just sort of folds over.
Screw in one side and fold it over and srew in the other side.
From the front it doesnt even look bent.
10 minute operation.

Also for future reference, all of our brackets have "Ultra Soft Weather Resistant Closed Cell" foam on any surface that will come in contact with the paint to prevent vibration, and aid in protection to potential damage to the paint on the vehicle... I've yet to see this on any of the "bolt on" brackets offered out there.

That bracket looks good, I'm using zipties and furniture felt pads...

This style of showing the license plate is a cooler way for me. But how does it work for those that have there license plate screwed into the bumper. What exactly would I have to do to situate this situation? (sorry if I have jack your thread TD)

Are there any coupons codes or free shipping options to seal the deal?
