Re: Front license plate bracket

I cant believe for $45K they cant add a hard mount behind the bumper for us to bolt into.
Guess I will have to make something up when I get mine...

There should be something hard behind the bumper cover and I thought that's what the screws eventually went into?

I guess I should be even happier that I don't need a front plate than I already am

When I show the Overland everyone gushes, but then all comment on the plate just being screwed into the bumper.

My dealer says that the parts department has nothing available at this time to fix the situation. What are the rest of you doing, or have your dealers come up with a solution?
My dealer mounted my plate to the front bumper for me while I was there for a warranty item. When I got home I improved on it using the process shared by member mhassler in this post:

I had a license frame with 4 holes, so I just used universal plastic trim panel connectors and pushed them into the unused lower holes for a finished look (attached). It keeps the license tightly attached to the frame so there's no rattling or space for crud to collect.
