How many of you have gone over a ledge and you thought you were clear and then you hear plastic crack! During a trail product development trip in Texas, Rusty had this exact thing happen. So he figured why not build a better one than the factory plastic license plate mount? The bracket does require lightly forming the license plate to the curve of the mount, which has an altered shape over the factory mount in order to improve trail clearance. The bracket is a simple installation and the factory license plate light transfers right to the new steel light mount as well. The mount includes all necessary installation hardware and has a durable black satin powdercoated finish. This is real must for any TJ owner that goes off road!
