    Has anyone mounted a front license plate on their ADD Stealth Winch bumper? If so I need some ideas, because I need to get one on there before I get pulled over!

    I love this front bumper!

    I need to know the same as well if I decided to get the same bumper.

    Ideas?

    I asked when I bought mine and was told they have some sort of snap in mount. I believe they said it snaps into the winch opening. My front plate is "mounted" between the passenger seat and console. My answer for LE will be that I was not given a mount and see what they say. I did ask about a mount and was not sent one or given the option to puchase. One of my wife's relatives told me he has only been asked once in over 30 years of no front plate here in IL. Guess time will tell.

    Not sure how it is elsewhere, but California requires a front plate as well. I have never used one on any of my vehicles and will never start. It is only a $15 fix it ticket here. If by some chance you do get pulled over and it would be rare to get pulled over just for no plate, you just zip tie it to the front bumper, have it signed off and then remove it again.

    I have gotten 2 speeding tickets in my 350Z over the past 3 years (I know I know) and not one time did they care about my plate. They just asked about the car.

    I already have paint matched bumper plugs for the Raptor which will be here in about 2 weeks. First thing is that front plate will come right off and bumper plugs inserted so it is clean looking.

    When I had my Evo here in NY I ran with no plate in the front for 6 years. Got pulled over about 5 times in those 6 years. Every time I plead not guilty and not once did I have to pay a fine. More of an inconvenience than anything.

    Texas is required to have front plates as well. I haven't had a front plate in 5 years. I have never been pulled over for it. I have gotten other tickets, but never a mention about the plate. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Looks like a parking assist sensor.
