overthehillsahara Sorry no pics, but before I removed my front bumper. I used a 1/16" steel plate cut to the size of the lic. plate and cabinet hinges. It would fold down and stay there, then I could flip it back up. I hope you can get the idea.

Cormizer What ever you do don't get the RR fairing head plate mount .. The one that snaps on I lost my plate fording and lost it during the hurricane ... I went with good old black zip ties n when I need the winch I flip the plate over n it sits on the bumper face down

Lbear Warrior Products makes one that mounts behind the hawse and then attaches a plate mount with knobs on the front. What I don't like is that the knobs can be unscrewed by anyone in a flash and there goes your license plate. Plus, it mounts the license plate from the hawse downward, thus exposing it to more possibility of damage. If those two limitations don't affect you, Quadratec and others carry it for about $40.

As far as on the bumper I looked at that but the only place was below the hawse and it would get creamed when I went Jeeping (plate's too big). That's why I like the hawse mount with a safety strap so it doesn't get lost or stolen or smashed..
Yea my licence plate is mangled from being on the front bumper. It's even better when you reverse threw mud or somthing and it gets folded up

combolc I have winch mounted on stock bumper and it hidden behind license plate.

I will be ordering a YJ hinged license plate bracket for the plate to fold down.

I'm in Oregon where we have to have a front plate too. Will you have a fairlead or hawse for your winch? There are options for both that have clips that attach to the rollers or fit inside the hawse. Rugged Ridge makes these and I ordered the one for a hawse mount that I have. I will attach a 3/16 wire rope to it secured to the bumper so it doesn't get misplaced or stolen. Google "hawse license plate mount" or "roller license plate mount" and you will find lots of options.
