License plate bull bracket for led bar mount

Has anyone mounted one of these on a 14-16 KL? If so, did you mount it directly to the bumper or to the optional front license plate mount?

I just ordered one of those because I'll never make my own mounts for my HID drivers...When I went to look at the mounting of the front license holder I realized it is just screwed into the plastic front bumper cover. Looks like taking off the front fascia is still going to happen to assure the bull bar has something metal to attach to so it doesn't bounce.

I believe there is a member that has installed one, but I cannot remember who or how...

I just installed this one last week. You are correct in that it attaches via the license plate screws to the license plate mount that is then just screwed into the front bumper. I plan on replacing the screws in the front bumper license plate mount with bolts to provide better stability. That being said, I haven't done it yet but this mount is still pretty sturdy considering. This is just a temporary solution for me until I can afford to get the winch mount and get it installed.

Thank you Wheyman. My new 16 High Altitude Ltd. didn't bring the front bracket. Just came back from dealer and sales, parts AND service didn't have any and explained FL units normally don't bring them as it's a single plate state! More than glad to order a Mopar OEM one for me. Did I understand you correctly in that you mounted the bull to the plate holder and not directly to the front bumper? If so, I'll have to buy one somewhere. Thanks!

Yes, Texas is front/rear plate state so mine had the front license plate holder on it and I mounted the mount to this. Once the weather clears up I'll get a pic of it uploaded.

I, too, have been looking at that mount but was awaiting someone else to be the tester on this. Now I have to start convincing my wife she needs more lights on her TH.

Not meaning to hijack a thread too badly but, to run down a rabbit trail for a moment, how's the ground plane on the CB antenna connected to the tow hook?

I have actually moved the CB mount from the tow hook to the light mount. I still need to run a ground wire for it though.
