I'm going to run a batch with that upwards mounting design. Thanks for the inspiration there.

I used some ty-wraps and attached it to the passenger side sun visor. Won't be my long term fix, but for now it seems to work fine

I installed the kentrol bracket on a bronco at our dealership. Came out great with no sensor interference. For those concerned about clearance, I could probably move the height adjustment up one notch and to the right and still be ok.

Hey MassBronco, Do you happen to have any more front facing photos of your Bronco?
After seeing HBTFD's design, I'm unsure of which one I want now :p

Good idea. I took a MA plate and centered it over the shackle to check for interference. It didnt look like the dimensions will interfere with the front sensors on the mod bumper, but it is going to be close. I ordered one of these to try out. I Will report back when it arrives later this week.
Hey man - did this work? The mount from the factory blocked my brake assist. Not sure if the dealer drilled the holes or the factory. Kind of pissed tho. About to order if this works. Lmk when you can.

It works. I've installed it on our dealership mannequin and several customer cars. The plate placement is adjustable

I’ll be using the Bronco bolts to attach my license plate to the front bash plate. There are various Bronco owners that have already done this. All you need is some 16 gauge metal and the ability to put a bend in it and drill some holes and you’re done. And anytime I do some heavy duty off roading I’ll just unbolt it.

This is kind of my plan. Except I'm going to make it follow the skid plate underneath. Will be pointed down, but meh. At least it is there.

Having it laser/formed/powder coated this week.

Here's what I did on our Mannequin. Bracket from Craig's Mustang brackets, they come with a stick on stud, but I just used one of the Bronco bolts. I had to bend the bracket to get the angle right. Also this is for the modular bumper, and if you have adaptive cruise control I think the metal plate would block the sensor.

Looks great, and great spot for the plate to be out of the way for off reading but a much better spot than the factory bracket. But like you said, likely an issue for anyone with ACC on their build.

Looks great. Any cooling concerns? I think those are active shutters behind the plate.

Which bracket did you buy? The universal or one specific for a year? I like this plan.

+1, this looks like the cleanest I've seen so far and I don't have ACC.
