Being from SC, we try to keep all those statistics out of public circulation. Hurts our population count.
It appears to be working! More people would rather freeze their ass of in Minnesota apparently.

In my excitement I wasn’t paying attention and the dealer put the front license plate bracket on. Yes, it screws into the front valance and now if a get an aftermarket front bumper there will be 2 holes in the painting valance below the grill. Not cool!!

Just move to North Carolina. We don't need a front plate. Or move to South Carolina, need no front plate and have no vehicle inspection.
PSA: If you're driving around SC, you'll see some crazy stuff that shouldn't be allowed on the road.
Sounds like New Mexico! 🤣

How does this license plate bracket look as an option?

Looks amazing... I'm in. Just need someone to at least semi-mass produce it.

Looks good. I was thinking lower they never ask if they can read the front license plat :LOL: just to have a front license plat. blot on the skid plate if possible but haven't seen a bronco in person yet.

That’s a prototype. I’ll have the final product for sale in a few weeks.
Well I'll be watching for it. Thanks!

Yeah the Ford plate mount is horrible. I made two different brackets and it took two adjustments to the second one, but I finally got one that works/looks good.

This is basically what I’m going to do but wrap it against the skid plate so it doesn’t get caught on any rocks off road

That is a great design!

1.) How did you attach it to the bumper? Did you just drill 2 holes in the bumper and use 2 bolts/nuts/washers?

2.) How did you prep the holes to prevent future rust? Just paint the bumper after drilling?

3.) Please post any 'before' and during mounting pics if you can.

Thanks from Illinois!

I used the two existing bolts in the bumper. I don’t have a photo, but I have the modular bumper.
