Default Front License Plate Mounting Option?

On my other car I didn’t want to drill into front bumper so have what’s called a tow hook license plate mount. It’s a large screw type that goes into a female receiver to which the tow hook would go if needed and it holds the front plate.

I want to get the small Baja Design light bar for the small grill area middle front bumper. In NY we must have a front plate. Are there any well made options for mounting it in the Raptor off to the side of front bumper?

Several people on FordRaptorForum.com use the Sto n Sho bracket. Some have mounted it on the passenger side and some on the driver side. I didn't like how low the plate mounts with the Sto n Sho bracket so I just drilled a couple holes in my d/s bumper pad. I also bought a new lower grill/bumper pad assembly so I could have a mint one on hand with no holes in it incase I ever need it. The 1st pic shows the Sto n Sho, the 2nd pic is my setup.

Thank you. While the sto n sho is rather low, unless I was off road, which unfortunately is as rare as spotting a saber tooth, it will be fine. I do like the way you have it also, but wonder if that would block a 10” light bar at all behind that mini grill?

The lower grill is about 19.5" wide.

Swarfworks makes a tow hook plate mount.

Got the sto n sho in mail today, but wish I had seen that Swarfworks before placing the order. But I’ll make it work.
