Grill Gaurd and Licence Plate

If I were to put on a grill guard how/where would I go about mounting the license plate. I live in Minnesota and Im pretty sure I am required to have it on there.

Any pictures?

Im looking at something more like a safari bar or a bull bar. Does anybody know the Law in Minnesota because I'd like to take it off but I dont think I can.

/\ /\ That still wouldn't work if I put on the safari bar because it would cover that up.

Stupid Laws!

Did you have to relocate your plate or is that where it is from the factory?

im pretty sure westin wouldn't design a bar that would block the licence plate.

I don't know about your states, but in Texas I think it is ok if you have it in the window, like on your passenger side on the dash.

What I do is keep it under my seat and if I get pulled over stick it back up there real fast. Just don't look suspicious while reaching under your seat haha.
