I have wondered this too as they have yet to show a Bronco where the front plate would fit without blocking the inter cooler. May have to just roll without one and when the cops pull you over say Ford didn’t design anywhere for it to go lol

I remember seeing somewhere around the forum that Ford has yet to finalize the front license plate positioning. So, I guess we'll see! lol

I hadn't even considered this and now I'm staring at my build stressed out.

It's a real engineering feat. Late-late-availabilty.

This is what they meant by your delivery will be dictated by "residency." If your state [province] requires a front plate you don't get your Bronco until the bumper rockstars figure this one out.

MY23 maybe?

I can hear the TX State Troopers now (happened to me) you can't have a license plate in the front windshield because it could decapitate a passenger in an accident. My thinking that is if I hit something hard enough that a license plate would decapitate me I am probably dead anyway.......

I had this issue with my RV in CA, no plate mount, so the front plate has lived in a storage cabinet for 5 years, haven't been stopped for being without yet, so will not run with it on my Bronco either, besides, as a retired LEO I will get a pass :)

Interested on the front license plate bracket also. We need them for surf fishing vehicle access on our state parks.

I know if you have a winch, they make brackets that clip into roller fairleads, but i am not sure if they have one for a hawse fairlead (this is the one common with synthetic lines). I suppose you could use zip ties and just cut it off to use the winch and then put it back on again when you're done? Not too bad if you only use it once in a while... but still a huge pain and easy to steal. I am sure Ford thought of something. I just hope it is better than their winch solution on the modular bumper.
