Question YJ Front License plate set up Smittybilt 76721 SRC Front Bumper

I recently installed a Smittybilt 76721 SRC Front Bumper on my YJ, its a 2 inch tubular, however its powder coated with and textured. The license plate holder we bought for the 2 inch wont fit(too small) and the 3 inch one is too big. MD requires front holders and i've been caught already without it. Id rather not resort to sloppily zip tying it or drilling into my new bumper. Any suggestions or pictures would be appreciated.

Wonder if you could line the inside of the 3" with rubber to get it to fit

Get a couple muffler clamps that just fit over the tubes of your new bumper. Enlarge the holes in the license plate to fit over the muffler clamp threads and use two extra nuts and flat washers. You can paint or plasticoat the muffler clamps to match the bumper so that they don't rust.

Good Luck, L.M.
