    On my Jeep I used to sandwich the plate between hawse fairlead and the bumper. Never came loose.
    I don’t like the idea of blocking air flow, by mounting to the grill with summer coming up.
    Looks like already blocked off 1/3rd by TSS sensor. I could be wrong but, there are openings in that grill for more than just looks.

    Just think how tax dollars could be cut in half, if states only stamped out one plate instead of two.

    Oh sorry, sipping and posting again. Don’t mean any disrespect.

    Hi, so this mount ended up not working too good with the CBI bumper when I actually used the winch. It does not tilt up all the way so unless the winch cable is pointing down it will not work with the plate.
    I just use thumbscrews now for the license plate as a qd to remove the plate quickly when I'm offroading.

    Do you have any pictures? Thanks for the tip. I'll think about using thumb screws/carriage bolts.
