New member, first question!

Just purchased 2012 Granch Cherokee Altitude, and i'm officially in love. This is my first jeep and am now obsessed with the brand.

One thing that is bothering me, not sure if anyone else has noticed or might have a solution....The rear licence plate cover rattles when I close the rear lift gate. Theres only two holes drilled for the top piece, I guess i'm asking to see if theres a simple way to fix that without drilling anymore holes!! Maybe a reccomened licence plate cover?
Thanks!

First of all, Welcome !

I have noticed the same thing on my GC and have wondered about the solution. It has a license plate fram around it but it still rattles.

Hope somebody out there has the answer.

Re: New member, first question!

A few options....
Use silicone or something similar to adhear the plate to the frame
Use small zip ties to hold the bottom of the plate to the frame
Some foam tape (think weatherstriping) behind the plate as well
Or...you can drill the bottom holes and get the square plastic inserts from an auto parts store.

Re: New member, first question!

I bought the Clear Cover. Not cheap but looks great. Just use the top two screw holes and no rattling meaning it keeps it snug.
