It all depends on the bumper in question.

Well, there's alot of different designs, for the bumpers and a lot of easy areas have been taken up for -hoops/loops/bars/winch/ plates-etc-

Mine is very light duty and I just drilled two holes and used ¼x28 SS bolts and nylock nuts-

Self taping screws, or zip-ties, or bailing wire... depending on what level of cleaness your looking for...

If you new bumper has a winch with a roller fairlead they make a tag plate holder just for that. It just clips right on the fairlead.

Sorry to derail, but Jimbo, what is the make of your bumper? I really like it.

Now back to the regularly scheduled program.

The bumpers (front/back) are OLYMPIC "Rock" series and 1½ yrs ago, cost $545 for both-from 4wdparts.com the front costs a little more cause it has the 2" hitch as part ofit !!

The rear just fits over the stock tow pkg hitch !!



The weight is about 10/15lbs-ea, more than the stockers !!

Good luck

JIMBO

Is no longer legal in the state of Texas.....we recieved a notification a few months ago the the Texas supreme court made a ruling on it, court stated "has to be on the front bumper now"

But as mounting the plate, I mounted mine onto my winch fairlead using these maglite clips..

...i have the same bumpers as 'jimbox'.

...top of front bumper started to peel in less than a year but it was an inexpensive bumper so come summer i'll wire brush it clean at the peel and 'rattle can' it. no worries.

...as for the 'plate'? dead center.
