    What did you guys do for your front license plate after installing a tube bumper? I have the TG bumper and here in California it's required to have your front plate displayed. Any pictures? Ideas?

    I really don't want to use zip ties.

    This may work, thanks.

    Thanks for the idea.

    This won't work. Still illegal.

    I live in Illinois and we have the same license plate policy. I haven't ran a front plate in 8 years. I always figure cops have more to worry about than me not running a front plate.

    I used these for mine. They fit a roller fairlead perfectly. can also clip onto the tube bumper as well. easily removed for wheeling.


    And I see Adel clamps have been mentioned. they are great. strong, but I will not use them because I see enough of the f*cking things at work.
