First, I've never seen one attach like this before. Right side of the plate slides into notches on the surround then the two right holes of the plate fit on little knobs sticking up then put two bolts in on the left side of the plate. Strange.

Second, The knobs didn't line up to the right side holes on my tag. I had to drill them out a bit to make it fit.

Third, my plate was too long to even fit flush. I had to take tin snips and trim down both sides of my tag to get it to fit.

Fourth, the two bolts that go in on the left side were so hard to get in using a flat screwdriver I thought I was going to have to get a ratchet out to put on those bolts. And yes, they were the bolts that came with the Jeep in a bag that said license plate bolts.

Anyone else had this problem on their Jeep?

I filed down one end of my plate and had to elongated the holes to get them to line up with the plastic knobs.

PA plates are a little off. The plate is the right width but the holes don't line up right.

My Colorado plate fit perfect. Of course that doesn't mean we want y'all moving here to get plates that fit.

You can always remove that monstrous plastic mount and relocate the plate. :D

Ok, this is the before.........
