Undertail Licence Plate Mounting Bracket

Hey, I am wondering what you guys are using for an undertail (aftermarket) licence plate mounting bracket? I am looking at a few online and I really don't want to pay $50 for one. Any reviews on the Ebay ones?

Thanks!

Funny enough, I have a spare set of plate mounting tabs that came with my bestum undertail.

I had a piece of 1" wide aluminum bar. I cut two pieces, one for each side of the plate, and bent them both to an angle I thought looked good for the plate (illegal?!). Drilled 2 holes in each for attaching them to the undertail, and 2 more holes in each for the license plate. Works well and the cost was right: free. Not as fast and easy as buying one ready-made, though.

Looks clean fellas. I think I have an idea now how to make my own.

Thanks for the pics!

That's pretty handy extrapolator, yet so simple

I got the plate mounted securely. I will buy an LED clear strip for the light. All said and done, I spent $0 for the mount and more to follow on the LED strip. Maybe $10 max
