Any suggestions on a company that has the correct plate bracket to mount on the bottom grill? I don’t want any holes drilled into the bumper. Please drop link(s) if you have found or ordered one already. Thanks!

Following. I am dreading that my Hybrid XLT will get drills in the bumper.

Tow hooks offer plate mounting options for Ecoboost owners, but hybrid owners are out of luck so far.

I emailed these guys at Sly Bracket (https://www.slybrackets.com/store) and they needed grill measurements that I don't have....

At this rate when my Hybrid ships I'll beg the dealer not to drill and then order as many options as I can find and hope one works 😅

Putting the front plate in the window makes it legal. Zip tying it to the front makes it legal to leave the lot. There is nothing in the law that states a plate bracket must be drilled into the bumper. Hell double sides 3m tape will work to get it off the lot.

Even in California? I mean I understand that it can be in the Window and be good - I guess I will call the dealer and ask that it not be mounted.

I like the simple approach with minimal hardware that Sly Brackets use over the other suggestions in this post. It would be great if we can get confirmation that their bracket will work on the Maverick before the OKTB date. We can keep our dealers from drilling holes.

I feel like you can work with them on this and if a bracket comes out in time, take one to them, or if one isn't out yet, take them some automotive trim tape and have them stick it on with that and you remove to remount with the bracket you want. Don't see why they wouldn't do that for you, the tape is quicker that drilling mounts.

Here is the one I ordered:

It looks like there are several places it could connect. It will be here in a few days and I will post an update then.

You can try asking the dealership to not install the front plate mount and tell them you have an alternate solution you prefer to use.
