Front License Plate - Alternate Locations?

Hello All,

Massachusetts, among other terrible laws, has a law that requires vehicles to have a front and a back license plate with the back plate being illuminated. My problem is with the from license plate as I would like to add a Rigid light bar in the bumper, but the license plate would be in the way. Have any of you guys relocated your front license plates to another location other than the factory location in the center of the bumper?

Thanks.

I just removed mine, ticket was only $100 and I only got one in the 5 yrs I owned my dodge. I know sometimes placing it in the lower corner of the windshield will pass but I personally think that looks like ****, also seen some guys put it behind the grill, I think if you place it just right you might still be able to see the characters on the plate between the grill bars. Might just work.

I've thought about just making it where u could remove it pretty easy since u can't really use em on the highway and u could pull it off if u wanted to use the light on back roads.

I'd like one of these to solve the problem. I imagine if it will bolt under a Mustang it would also work under a Super Duty.

A buddy of mine had a winch on the front of his truck and put snap on cabinet fasteners bolted to the plate and it cliped onto the rollers for the winch. I had planned to do roughly the same I had one years ago with a spring loaded clip under the winch but i like being able to remove it all together when needed. you could easily put a motorized flip down to reveal your light bar or mount it with clips to be removed IF you intend to only use that light bar off road. just a thought
