front license plate mounting???

Has anyone mounted a front plate on their JK? What size of screw did you use and was it self taping or did you have to use a nut?

Thanks

I used 1/4-28 SS bolts x 3/4" and Nylock knuts

In all seriousness I think you will need a license plate mount. Reason being is that there is some dead space between the plastic bumper and where the metal bumper begins. How much I am not sure but if you use regular bolts and tighten down you will end up just bending the plastic inward towards the metal portion.

Scooter may be right about the plate bracket, but then you would have to mount the bracket, same problem, no? Anyhow, self tappers do do the trick. (Yes, I said dodo)
