Front basket

Can anyone offer some help on how to install a basket for cargo mainly a cooler to a stock 2011 bumper without gutting my lights and bumper? I don't want it to be permanent by any means nor destroy anything.

Yes! However, I do not want to weld a receiver on the bumper. I kinda was looking for a bracket with bolts or such to be removable being as I don't want a permanent receiver on the front nor carry the basket 24/7

Maybe mount a winch plate to the bumper then mount the basket.

What is the legality of this? I would be concerned you would be obstructing lights no matter how low the platform is packed.

Just to hold my stuff while on the beach it's not a full blown transport item. I want my tackle accessible. Can't drive the beach at night anyway.

Probably some kind of front hitch like this.
