Hey all-

I bought a 2011 Compass earlier this week and I'm trying to mount a front license plate to it without drilling into the bumper. I saw some older threads on this site with members having the same issue but never saw any solutions other than "drill it".

Has anyone come up with any good solutions for the 2011? I'm thinking zipties might work with the small slots already in the bumper but haven't put much creative thought into it yet. If anyone has any pics/instructions of their set-up, it'd be appreciated.

If I come up with a good solution I'll take some pics and be sure to post.

Thanks.

I hope you have found a solution by now, but just in case you haven't drilled yet, my wife just picked her 2011 latitude up yesterday and it has a plate holder on it. Jeep must make 'em.

front license plate bracket

I live in CT currently but am from Michigan. I noticed that all of the Compass' here at the dealership already have a front license plate bracket on them. I'm guessing because it is the law in Connecticut. I'm also wondering if I took this off, would there be holes in the bumper from drilling that plate on there? I am very picky and would actually rather buy the vehicle in michigan if this is the case? Does anyone know? Thanks.

I never thought about this before since we're not required to have a front plate in LA, I just do because I usually have something else on the front, but I wonder if, instead of drilling holes in the spots made for a front plate if the 3M adhesive would work just as well. It's the double sided sticky tape they use to put the badges on and I've used it to add badges to my truck and it's gonna take some work and goo gone to get them off, so it should hold a front plate frame and that could be an alternative to drilling. Just a thought.
