the more i think about this the more i think it's a bad idea.
but wondering what others have done about getting your license plate back on the front (mandated where i live) and the back after putting on aftermarket bumpers.

i gave in trying to come up with something easy and almost bought the jcr offroad rear tire license plate bracket but apparently that doesn't work with stock wheels. something about the 'bore' size of the wheel being too small. 🤷‍♂️

I think magnets would cause damage to whatever surface they were adhered to over time. Scratching would occur as the magnet moved

I like the idea, I'll give it a try. Just need to strategically place them where they will be most effective. Epoxy two or four 3/4" rare earth magnets to the back of the plate. Then stick it on the bumper metal surface. Rare earth magnets are incredibly strong, making it difficult to pull of the bumper. I use them in construction in lieu of roller catches on doors.

I do this on my Jeep when I go into Chicago because they will ticket you for no front plate while parked in the street. I typically only put it on when parked but have driven many times with it on. I used very powerful magnets and covered them in cloth so they don’t scratch bumper.

Interesting. Maybe I’ll try it for a bit.
I’m not really a fan of what I’m finding on the internet in the way of alternate license plate placement brackets.
Now I’ll have to do is find mini-magnetic-battery-led lights for the rear plate. 😅
