    Hello all! I was wondering if anyone uses a license plate bracket for the front or rear license plate? I have my license plate bolted directly to the bumper, front and rear. Will this cause any damage to the plates or bumper? I took off the cheesy old dealer license plate frame and realized that there was no bracket behind the plates? Anyone have a similar setup? Thanks.

    I have an aftermarket frame around the one on the front to prevent the license plate from marking up the plastic on the bumper. On the rear it is bolted directly to the bumper and I have not had any issues.

    yeah same thing here. I thought that was kinda cheap. They just screwed the front license plate onto the plastic. The back has holes in the bumper so it's not too bad.

    My front plate gets beat up a bit since it has nothing behind it but it hasnt damaged my bumper at all. I hate living in a state that requires front plates
