Thanks. That is what I'm hoping. I don't tow much, but I do have a small single axle trailer I use for my motorcycle.

A few other rear bumpers I have been looking at are not rated for towing and that's why I asked.

I tow my pop up with my current ace bumper. The only thing that would make the towing any better is to have a longer wheel base. My 2 dr on 35s and a 3.8 sucks uphill! Oh well looking into a jkur for the wife(by the time my 2010 is paid off i will take the rubi and buy her something else and have 2 jks to mess with). Hopefully she falls for it!

I'm liking the bumper! Already have my front and rear is being built otherwise I'd get the pro series front and rear bumpers

Do I spy tube doors?

I guess I finally know where I am getting my bumpers. Is there a way to do a factory fog light opening on the Pro Series front bumper. I love the weight of it but am not interested in a LED lightbar.

But where are the bikini babes that are supposed to showcase it for us?

Agreed, I'd rather have factory fogs that the bar.

I am looking for a bumper/hitch receiver solution that can safely handle the load of a 300lb motorcycle on a 60-80lb hitch carrier. The total weight is not so much the issue as is the distance from the bumper (leverage factor). With the way this bumper mounts to the frame, I would think it is possble to handle this kind of load? Will deal with suspension as required.

I am under the impression the new one will be designed to hold the same size as the old tier carrier, but it will hold a 37 for sure

Something like a small rack on top, shovel bracket, jerry cans, hi-lift, stuff like that. Id be all over it considering ACE's top notch quality and pricing. DO IT ACE

I would be nice to see add-ons that will bolt up to the carrier using u-bolts, like a jack mount or jerry can etc.

The hilift jack can already be mounted using the extra holes for the tire carrier, the only issue is you need to have enough backspacing to leave room for the hilift jack. its more of a DIY solution, but the holes are there, provided you have the room for it

Seriously though if the ACE Pro Series bumper and his rear bumper were able to be had with factory fog cutouts I would be ordering. A lightweight and inexpensive front bumper that requires an insanely expensive fog light setup makes no sense.

Any updates on the progress of this thing and an idea of pricing? I was going to get the ACE rear with carrier, but now I have to wait.

Could be released today or 2 years from now. ACE is great at putting ideas out there but is very inconsistent in terms of what makes it into production. I'm still waiting for their half door.

I like the look and the sturdiness of it, here's my list of goodies I'd like to see --

1. I don't like the ACE cut into the bumper, it's an issue with anything like this for me (not the name itself) after a few years these things seem to start rusting and peeling before other parts of the bumper. If it were a 'stamped style' relief I'd like it better.

2. An option to order one with regular fog lights, I like the LED lights - but I like options too.

3. An option to order one that uses the factory hitch with a place for the 4 pin connector to clip on.

Building a Jeep is just that, any company that recognizes we like our options will do well. ACE already has some nice stuff out there, and I need more nice stuff.

Hadn't seen any ACE products. Like this and the ACE front bumper pro. Great looks. Anyone had any experience with their products?

Lots of people have had experience with ACE products. I have the door hangers and the rear bumper/tire carrier and love them. I plan on getting the rock sliders and front bumper too.
