Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

Mostly all states that require them drill the holes in the front bumper, but usually a bracket is there to hold the plate.

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

Hey Juan, I just had my local dealer order one too for me. (like 22 buks)

Just make sure its the right one. Although it does say 2011 and 2012 JCO, its odd the bracket didn't show up as a part when I gave the dealer my VIN number.

From what I gather from the guy on the phone...the "kit" uses teh same holes that were already used for the plate.

So we'll see....

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

3M tape will also hold a plate on and add a little vibration protection as well. Removes with goo-gone, would only need to reapply wax after.....

Mine came with a bracket. It was in a plastic bag along with the trailer hitch cover and electric brake harness.

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

I remember taking my bracket out of the back when i first brought my jeep home...but for the life of me a cannot remember where i put it! Its still sealed in a plastic bag. One nice thing about MI, no front plates! One bad thing, Ohio Police like to target Michiganders...no plate on the front is a dead give away!

Just to update everyone...i picked up the bracket this morning from my dealership....and its the exact one needed.

I also learned that the dealerships are not obligated to use this bracket....so stupid!

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

In the Province of Alberta we require only the rear license plate. However, when my New Grand Cherokee Overland arrived from the factory it had two small pilot holes in the front bumper as a guide for front plates if needed. One would have to look closely to see them. If my memory serves me, my previous Aspen, Durango and Grand Cherokee were the same in this respect. Ever since the industry moved to the plasticized bumpers this has been the method. After your post I even checked my wife's Mercedes C Class and it is the same.

I called the dealer after purchase and they said they don't have a front plate bracket, I will give them the part # and see if they can order one for me to keep if I decide to put one on.

Re: Front license plate was drilled in by dealership??? How is yours installed?

Bracket or no bracket, it's uglier to have the plate up front than to have the clean bumper. Where I live requires front plates but I have not had a front plate on any of my cars over the last 30 years without any serious issues. But, I do have 2 very prominent and ugly holes drilled into my bumper. Uck.

Larry, I tried to get one from my dealer and they have no clue. I have escalated this with Chrysler. Can you tell me what dealer you bought your wk2 from and if you have any idea of the part # for the frame. Thx
