Front plate

I have to put on a front plate and refuse to use the bracket that came with the car. I heard there is one that attached to the underside of the front bumper. We're can I get one?

Thanks

I got pulled over 5 times for no front plate in Ohio so I had no choice but to put it on. I used zip ties to put mine on, the plate went on the factory supplied bracket and I zip tied the bracket to the lower grille. It took me about 3 minutes and it's lasted for over 4 years.

They must be bored. I have never been pulled over in picky California for such a thing.

I just don't want a reason for any cop to pull me over - so if the law says its there, i put it there, but no drill so if I move to a state without the requirement, I can take it off. I agree it looks better without it

yep cops here in Maryland look for any reason to pull you over. then they start saying oh this tint is too dark. oh the exhaust sounds too loud. You need to get a inspection. Been there done that. Play it smart not arrogant.

I second this one. 5 minute install and no drilling holes in your bumper. Looks great!

look into the Eliminator Bracket. I love it. Uses the OEM plate bracket but attaches two spring loaded clips to the back so it holds fast during vehicle operation with absolutely no drilling and it's easy to remove during shows and/or photo shoots, etc.

And the police say they don't "target" certain cars and I say that is total BS. My wife has been driving her Yukon Denali since 2004 when we bought it, there has never been a front plate on it and never been pulled over.

I was never given a ticket but the last cop told me if he see's me again he will write me up a $240 ticket.
