Bumping for any possible updates and a question.

I may be doing some upgrades that involve me going to a 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern. How difficult would it be to order the tire carrier to use that pattern?

Yep, I think I'll also wait for this one to come out. Given ACE's proven bang-for-the-buck factor, it should be a winner! Their current line-up of front bumpers don't really seem to match (design wise), though, but perhaps there's a new front bumper on the way, too?

Anyway, I'll stay tuned for more news...

Lars,

This one is desinged (I believe) to go along with their new Pro Series front bumpers.

Talking with ACE on this, we should be seeing it hopefully Spring-ish next year! We can't wait either!

Do they need a beta tester? I have beta testing experience and would gladly beta test this bumper.

I already have the old version, just out of curiosity, are you not offering the old version anymore? I noticed it wasn't on the site.

Very nice !!
If it's not too heavy, I may consider going for it.
I just hope they start considering weight when they design these things.
The way things go, soon we'll all need 6 inch lift, because when you start adding weight front and back, your Jeep goes diving deeper and deeper.
Only with ACE rails I added 100 Lbs to my Jeep.

Yup, these are for sale and ready to go!

If anyone is wanting one, we can make get a package deal with these and the Rigid lights!!!

I really like this bumper, and have some refund money coming. Only question…the bumper WITHOUT the receiver, is there a cutout for the preinstalled factory receiver? Got the tow package when I bought it, and really not wanting to scrap it.

Really like this rear bumper, just don't like their front bumpers. Liked the stubby, but don't like the mods to put it on. Not sure which way I'll go. Different brands on Front and Back?

ACE, just out of curiosity, why did you change the design of the tire carrier?

and increase the price by over 25%? The main aspect that made/makes ACE stand out from the rest is great quality at an incredible price. Their old bumper was a slightly different design but an incredible value at about $600. Offering this redesigned bumper at the close to $900 range puts them right within range of other top quality competitors. I understand economics and supply/demand theories in marketing, I just hope that ACE isn't losing touch with the main aspect that set them apart and brought them great success.

I have the old bumper with new carrier. I figured there had to be a good reason because you don't fix something that's not broken. I wanted to original version because I could adjust the height of the tire. I also get raising the price because the economy.

The original version will still be available it will just have the new style carrier.After we update the pics/info/video it will be back up.

The pro-series is offered for an additional style option. The bumper has considerable more welding and bending then the previous model.

Thanks for all the great feedback and orders on our new pro-series rear.

Thanks
Adam

Thanks for all your great quality products. I will always support you guys, just keep an eye on the price. Like i had mentioned, its one of the more important factors that makes your company unique.

Now, that the development of these bumpers are squared away, any news on your tube doors?

Forget the tube doors, I'm hoping they come out with a front bumper that has a recessed area for the winch..

Don't get them started on another project. they have so many great things in the works already that haven't come out. The tube doors w/ skins is one and they they had the cage that was floated out there like 2 years ago, I still haven't seen that.

Still not an overland capable bumper. Too bad, I really wanted ACE to have an overland bumper for those of us that don't rock-crawl and want maximum storage, width, and fuel carrying. Maybe next time.
