Mounting front license plate on factory bumper

Do you just put the screws in where the two indents are or is there some kind of mounting bracket needed? Just want to make sure before I go putting holes in my bumper. Thanks!

Two screws where the indents are. Make sure the screws are no more than 3/4" long.

Got it, thank you very much. Had no luck concerning a factory bumper with a search.

Just don't overtorque the #12 or 14 screws.

Use #12 or #14 screws and don't overtorque them.

any alternatives to putting holes in the bumper? As in, brackets that bolt on?

With a little ingenuity I'm sure you could fab up a bracket that bolted to the bottom of the bumper.

Just put it on with the screws, you'll be removing it shortly anyway.
