If your state requires a front license plate, we have a solution for you. Instead of drilling holes in your bumper or risking not running a front plate, this easy to install license plate holder attaches to your winch fairlead. Simply bolt your license plate to the bracket and snap the holder in place. Your license plate is now securely mounted yet easily removable for winching by a 3/4 inch clip on the bracket. Will not work with all hawse fairleads.

1.0 Almost criminally bad

Ran this on my JK without issue for 5 years. Got a JL Rubi and bought a new one to fit the same (JL version) of the same bumper. Tried to put it in place and 3 of 6 tines broke. I was an experienced user of this previously good product. Steer clear.
