I would like to see a full width rear bumper and the option to use 4" round instead of the high $$ LED bar. Everything else is awsome. Was going to get mine this year but some other life expenses poped up so it is on the list for 2014. Why did I ever grow up? real life sucks.

What front bumper are you running? I want the Spyder Brawler front bumper but I'm paranoid they won't match up.

Question, and maybe the owners or Ace can answer this....

That piece of plate that is located to the right of the spare in the above photos, on the tirecarrier....can it be drilled and is it thick enough to support a rotopax mount?

LOVE IT!! I will hopefully be ordering that shortly to get it by spring. Whats your suspension setup? And any droop from the weight? That's all that has be a little worried is that 190lbs without the tire.

Thanks folks!!
The plate on the carrier is thick - we haven't tried to drill it.
We are still running stock on the front. We plan to order the front Pro Series.
We are running the Teraflex 2 1/2" spring lift and yes it sagged a bit in the back. Our next purchase is the set of pucks to bring it back up.

Looks sweet! I'll be ordering mine in a few weeks. What about the trailer wiring? Any good options to run those?

Looking good! Are you going to add in the LED's for the backup lights?

You may want to wait until you get the front bumper. It may end up being level and not need the pucks unless you want some of the height back.

I definitely want the height back - getting all four pucks for that.
Eventually yes we will be adding the lights but when the pair of them cost almost as much as the bumper well... it's a budget thing lol! I was hoping to get them for Valentine's Day but it didn't happen.
There is not wiring holder - we knew that going in and Hubster has some ideas on what to do about it. I will post up when he decides.

Can't tell for sure but can you adjust the height of the tire on the carrier? I like the look but would want to put the tire a little lower towards the bumper.

Thanks
The site has this listed at 190lbs? I know i didn't graduate college but doesn't this add up to 160lbs?

For what it's worth, I'd love to see a lighter version. I'm a huge fan of the ACE stuff and my rock sliders have paid for themselves several times over. Love the lines of this bumper.

You could on the old design but not the new one. Don't worry, you get used to not seeing much out of the back

I like to see what or who is behind me. Just when you think you have found your gem you find that one flaw. Maybe I could and maybe I can't get use to it. Lot of money for a "I don't know"

You can still see behind you, just not very well. I'll get a pic. It also helps having convex mirrors on the side mirrors

I thought I saw in the install video you could choose your height level, could be wrong though.

I am planning on ordering this tomorrow!!

That's the old design. The new one attaches to the tailgate differently making impossible to have an adjusting carrier. I'm not sure why they changed it

I have had to wait a few weeks for all of the ACE products I have purchased but they are worth the wait

Been waiting 4.5 weeks now. Good luck I don't think they can keep up with the demand just yet.

Yeah they are 6-8 weeks lead time still. Let us know though and maybe we can help take some of the sting out of the price!

Ace,
Where in Michigan are you guys located?
Would be nice to factor shipping out of the equation.
Bumper looks great, btw!
Thanks.
