Replace your bent or rusted license plate holder with this brand new Rugged Ridge factory style replacement bracket. This part is for maximum protection against the elements.
Well built, nice design. However, this part does not work with the Warn hawse - the plastic clips are too short to grab the back of the hawse. I had to return it and bought the Warrior Products bracket instead (which works great. But for other hawse's I would probably recommend it.
The plastic grips are not long enough to work with the thickness of the Warn winch hawse (or at least the Zeon model). Otherwise, the bracket was well constructed and appears to be a very good design.
Needs a teather to make sure you don't loose it while off-road. Mounts are good for everyday use, but if you plan on hitting the trail, take it off.
What hardware is required to install. What are the installation instructions?
Asked by tom from South Carolina on
Hi Tom The hardware is the screws or bolts that hold the License Plate Bracket to the Jeep. There are no instructions just take the old one off put the new one on and your good to go. Thanks

I read that this Hawse Fairlead License Plate Holder isn't compatible with Warn Winch Hawse Fairlead. So my question is will this Rugged Ridge Hawse Fairlead License Plate Holder work with the Smittybuilt Winch Hawse Fairlead? Thank you!
Asked by Silverback from Spotsylvania, VA on
Silverback, the Rugged Ridge License Plate Bracket will work with the Smitty fairlead just fine. Hope this helps!
