I went with the Maximus-3 JL Low Mount License Plate Bracket and Frame. Model JL1023LL.
It uses 3 bolts on underside of bumper to mount. I mounted it upside down since I don't have a winch so it is in front of the bumper instead of below it.

Stock photo from their site, I'll try to get a picture of it mounted in front of the bumper when I get a chance.

My state requires front license plate and mine arrived with a license plate holder from factory.

There’s a specific Mopar part that snaps into Rubicon steel bumper, in place of fairlead cover, if you are not running a winch.

I went the Cascadia flip up route

Looks great - how are you liking the flipster?

Thanks for sharing,

Mine does also - but only if the mounting is supplied by the manufacturer. If my steel bumper doesn't come with the mounting plate it is going plateless ;) Definitely a cleaner look.

They’ll mount it unless you ask them not to. (I asked them not to - didn’t want holes drilled, hence the fancy bracket I’m using, instead.)

That's an elegant solution.

Thanks for the info. I'll make to sure to let my dealer know I don't want holes.

Where did you find the plate that mounts on the bumper behind the license plate holder and fairlead? Did come as part of the license plate holder?

another vote for the maximus-3 stealth mount. Uses factory steel bumper bolts, easy to install, looks great and is rock solid. Just installed mine last night. Also, if your dealer DID install the mounting bracket (like mine did), you can get part number 68293980AA for like $13 from @AllMoparParts.com
