Got my Personalized license plate for my JKU today

Now I will need my wife to help me install it since my right arm is in a sling for 4 more weeks.

Getting pretty good with my left hand. Just installed the sucka!

Had to drill out the right holes a little bit so it would fit over the nubs.

Nice! I want a personalized plate too, but can't figure out wth to get hehe. Well I know what I really want but it's been taken. I briefly entertained the idea of getting MLCRWLR once I had some off-road mods on

It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted. My first choice was BEAST but it was taken. Got my second choice. My third choice was RNGLR

Nice tag. How come you blacked out your previous tag on your last picture post but you show this one?

Here's to a speedy recovery so your wife doesn't have to keep helping you wipe the Jeep.

Actually this is a special edition Utah plate (not the regular kind). I love the American bald Eagle. Also have a tattoo of an eagle on my shoulder.

Volleyball injury. Also made worse by throwing the football. I coach little league.

Yeah, your regular ones are better to! but The eagle is great, can you imagine ben franklin wanted the country bird to be a TURKEY?!

That sucks about your shoulder, my brother tore his RC and hi labrom(sp) between lifting and football, and I have another friend who had surgery on both shoulders one for RC and one for something else. haha. They aren't fun injurys but you can recover and do alot to help it out. I hope your PT goes well

The plate looks great. Thinking of getting one myself but haven't made up my mind. The personalized tag on my VFR says HANGUP. Bad enough driving a car with everyone on a phone but it especially bugs me on my bike.
Good lick on the therapy! Jeep looks great.

It cracks me up that people black out their plates on the forum, yet thousands of people see it daily.

I think it's because they see other people do it and just do it because. When I first joined the forum I saw it being done here and other places and wondered the same.

Love the plate, Good luck with the sholder. I'm having "issues" with mine and have cut back on archery. Shooting a recurve puts a bit of strain on mine.

Only numbers I hide on the Internet are serial numbers on my firearms on the shooting forums.

edit: I did hide my plate once now that I think about it. Don't know why.

Same reason. I did it earlier because I saw other people doing it. Now if you think about it, like you said, makes no sense.

Not quite hijacking this thread...
For you guys that live in state's with a requirement for a front plate:

When the dealer put it on your new JK, how did they do it?
In my case they just drilled four bolts into the front bumper and stuck it on.
No back plate or anything.

What'd you get?

Kind of ironic with a license plate reading "Ruggd"

Hope you are back to 100% very soon.

My state (UT) has a requirement for a front license plate. The dealer would normally have drilled four holes in the bumper . I made sure they didn't do that. I think, my sales guy and the shop manager got tired of me calling them every week when my order was processed.

I think, that's what most of the dealers do - drill four holes in the front bumper which really sucks. They should make some type of a bracket but then a lot of states do not require a front license plate so I guess it can't be justified.

Most of us will probably change the bumper, but still.

I didn't get any brackets either.
I just used a cordless drill to start the screws at the little dimples and then switched to a hand screw driver to carefully bring 'em in tight.

(This is an older pic from when I was still blocking my plate out.)

Considering what I paid for my Jeep they coulda hoofed it to the NAPA store and bought some sort of bracket.
Instead they put on these god-awful frames that has the dealer's name all over them.

They were gone 2 hours after I picked the Jeep up.
