Front license plate

So I've been waiting for the dealer to get some parts in that were part of the deal when I bought my used 2014 SRT, mainly the front license plate bracket. The truck came from a Chrysler exec in Michigan where they do not require a front plate. Here in Illinois we need a front plate and since the state and Chicago are broke they ticket quite freqently if you don't have one. My salesman now said they do not make a bracket for the 2014s and can screw it right to the bumper which I said was a no go. I checked directly with their parts department and they said there is no such part listed for a 2014 SRT which I find very hard to believe. So my question is do any of you know if the 2014s came with a front bracket?

Re: Front license plate

Try it with 3M dual lock tape. No drilling and clean look.

That works to. I did that to the rear plate on my gt500 so I could remove the plate at shows

Re: Front license plate

Your parts guy is a dick! There are hundreds if not thousands of those brackets fitted to Jeeps all over the US (well except maybe the states that done require a front plate?). Look on ebay, there are plenty for sale.


I'm sure I have even seen some come in a kit for our AUS models, but we don't use them.

Re: Front license plate

I'm in the NW burbs but in the city quite often with my rig. I dont run a front plate and never ran a front plate on my 08 GCSRT. Keep the plate in the rig with you and if you ever get pulled over just say you had the front bumper replaced and you are waiting on the bracket, that its on national back order.

Re: Front license plate

Since you've accepted the idea of piercing the bumper, don't use the plate holder at all!! Just drill 2 tiny hole in the dimples and mount the plate flush against the bumper. Looks better. Did it with my 2012 also.

Re: Front license plate

Not too sure how this would look, but it is a neat idea.

Did you get the plate put on? If not, check out big Mikes performance parts. I have the Jeep SRT removable bracket that he makes. It is super solid, I've bashed it a fair amount. I also live in the city.

Thanks do you have a pic of it on your SRT? I didn't think it would work due to the FCC sensor, if it needs to be mounted off to the side it seems like that would look worse than just having the plate mounted where it belongs. No?
