Where do you put the License plate and the light to the License plate?

For the what it's worth, I put springs on my ramps. I'm getting old and they are getting too heavy.

I modified the knees on my ramps so the ramps would not kick up. I also made the knees shorter so when I'm driving my backhoe on the trailer, the springs on the trailer are compressed a little making the incline angle safer and easier.

I've never found a plate light that will hold up for more that a few months and my thoughts are that a broken light draws more attention than no light, so I don't use them. To my knowledge no one has ever had a problem with that. In Mn. small trailers, less than 3000 lbs, don't use plates anyway only a tag on the tongue. On this trailer they just bolted the plate to the fender.

Looking at the pics, there is no bracket or light. Is it legal to put the plate on the fender without a light?
