I understand now. My apologies.
Ever since I can remember I've tried to keep everything I own as clean and new as the day I bought it. Even if it's a Jeep. If im ticketed because im breaking "the law" then so be it. I'd rather pay the fine then have to add something to my Jeep that will make it to me visually unpleasant.
I also live in Crook County IL but im on the far west side of the county where I've never been harassed for tint, no front plate, and clear license plate cover even though i've been breaking the law for years. I guess the city needs the additional revenue more then the burbs.
My gf on the other hand has been ticketed for no front plate while parked in the city so she "convinced" me to add it to her car.
Again it's your choice. If you want to add pink wheels and change the tune your horn sounds to It's a small World
then so be it.
Don't let any passive aggressive forum members tell you otherwise.
