Ideas For Jeep License Plate Options

Depending on where you live, you may be required to have a plate on both the front and back of your vehicle. Some states only require them to be displayed in the back, but allow personalized plates to be mounted in the front. In most cases, you have various options concerning the types of plates you choose, as well as what is on them or what sort of frames and lighting you provide. 

Of course, it is always best to check with your state motor vehicle department to ensure you are following state rules and regulations, and avoid restrictions. You don’t want to end up with a ticket for violating some obscure rule. 

Here are some ideas to consider when planning to personalize your Jeep plates:

Vanity Plates

Vanity plates allow you to create your own message from letters and numbers as long as it isn’t already taken. These often cost a bit more than a standard plate, but truly provide a customized experience. They are super fun to put together as well and can be quite humorous at times. 

Your Alma Mater

Many states provide various plates from which you can choose from. Pick from your alma mater to showcase your school pride, especially if you used to be part of a Jeep or off road club while in school. You can also make these a vanity plate if you so desire to personalize them even further.  

Supporting Charities

You can often find charity plates that support state monuments, parks, or causes and organizations like autism awareness, military, or and children trust funds- to name a few. These are a great way to support something you feel strongly about, or like to take your Jeep to during your off roading adventures. These plates can also be made into vanity options. 

Decorative Plates

Although you can’t use a purely decorative plate as your legal plate, if you live in a state that does not require a front plate, you can place your own customized option on the front instead. With the advances in technology, you can have just about anything you want added to a plate, or even make your own with a plate template and decals. 

License Plate Frames

You can also add license plate frames that have fun sayings, decorative stones and faux jewels, metal finishes, or bright colors to add to or bring attention to your personal vanity sayings or customized choices. 

Plate Lighting Options

Light up your plates using lighted frames and colorful LED side plate lights. These are a fun option but you do need to check with state regulations to ensure you aren’t creating a distraction with your light placement or going against rules pertaining to keeping your plates clear.
