Lightbulb Front license plate bracket

Hi guys. I heard some guys in my area had a problem with the police about the front license plate. It was started when they got pulled over because of not showing their front license plate. They ended attach their front license on the mesh grille.

I'm thinking to buy one that requires no hole just in case got pull over by the police. Any idea what's the best for front license bracket? I have several options, such as the retractable front license plate mount, front bracket from tow. Let me know what do you recommend for me.

Really appreciate opinions and comments guys!!

Do you mind to let me know those other two? Yapp, I'm keeping my eyes on us mill. How about the retractable one? I know it seems ugly when you can look something is hidden under your bumper

no idea about the retractable one. i'm too low and it would probably just get ripped off.

i think one of the others is cp-e. if you search tow hook mount you'll find a number of decent threads. I think the best was in the 1m forum, but it's been a while since i've searched

What kind of us mill did you buy? the lightened one or which one? Because there are several types such as M-sport bumper, all bumpers, and lightened one. By the way, does it rattled during highway speed? I'm just curious about it. thanks

i bought the regular and it doesn't rattle.

the gomingo is a good choice too. the beauty of the us millworks is you have the adjustability right off the bat.

I think if i bought it again i'd throw the extra 20 down for the lightened millworks one.
