thats a great price!

The new PSC rear bumper/tire carrier is >1400, not shipped, AND bare steel. Plus the ACE has tow ratings! Gosh, this looks great!

Sorry, I must have missed this. I usually try to answer all the questions about ACE. No. The bumper hangs down further than the area alotted for the stock reciver so it does not clear. If you want to run a hitch, you will have to get the bumper with it and not without.

Thanks! And the tow rating is 3500lbs? Does it come with a slot for the wiring connector?

I'm usually "meh" about bumpers with built-in hitches, but this one looks reaaaly nice.

Yes, it keeps the stock tow rating. And as for the connector, it does not BUT, that should be a simple fix with some zipties!

As far as attaching the wire connector, I use zip ties like Jason mentioned. When I redo the wiring for a 7 pin plug this summer, I'm just going to use zip ties again or use a $5 mount made for trucks

On my 7pin i used that 5 dollar mount but mounted it on the inside of the the crossmember with the 7pin facing the ground. This way i do not have to look at it all the time and it doesnt get ripped off while wheeling!

That's where I'm thinking of putting mine. It's probably easier to drill into than the bumper

I received my bumper on Wednesday and just finished up installing it this afternoon. I was working on it since yesterday, probably took around 3 hours or so. It was pretty straight forward, and I only had to drill out two stampings that were blocking the holes for the bolts in the rear bumper. I attached pictures of my install for everyone to see...this bumper is awesome.

Very nice write up on them with the pics included. Was it hard to pass the wires for the rear lights through the frame. I have that bumper and lights coming in a couple of weeks.

You can also run the wires through the inside of the jeep, that's what I did. Wanted to keep the wires out of the elements in Chicago area. I fed a leader wire down from near where the hard top wiring disconnects, taped on the wiring i wanted to run and pulled it through, pretty easy. Once you get wires inside you can just follow the existing wiring under the carpet and through fire wall behind dash on drivers side. Was really simple.

Running the wires through the frame was very simple. I just ran a fish from the front to the back and the pulled the wires through. Probably took about 10 minutes to get them hooked up. As far as having them exposed to the elements, I took that into consideration but I think they'll be fine. I sealed the connections with liquid electrical tape pretty well, so that should help.

The hardest part of the whole installation was putting the tire carrier on. I had to keep on hitting it with the rubber mallet until I was able to put the nut on a few threads and then crank it down that way. Getting it in the first fitting was simple, the second one was difficult.

If Ace made full length bumpers, I'd be all over their stuff.

Really like this bumper, especially the price when compared with poison spyder. I liked ace pro front bumper too, but didn't like cutting off 4 of the mounting bolt points. Does this one require frame modifications? Any way to get this without the ace tramp stamp?

The only frame modification I had to do was drilled out two stampings that were blocking the holes in the center of the frame. It wasn't shown in the video and I'm not really sure why they were there, but it took 2 minutes to drill them out. Other than that, it just bolts right up.

Are the 2 stampings on the rear all you needed to drill for this install?

I ordered a set of lug nut brake lights that I'm going to use. They should be here this week and I'll install them this weekend.

Yup, that's all. Everything else was pretty much straight forward. The hardest part attaching the tire carrier but that didn't even take long.

You ran the fish from the front to the rear right? Where did you "enter" the rail? I'll be doing something like this pretty soon, and that info would help a lot. Any obstacles inside the rail that made it difficult?

I hadn't even thought of the 3rd brake light until seeing the above post. What kind of mods do they have to replace it?

For a 3rd brake light, you could get the TeraFlex 3rd brake light bracket w/o tire carrier

I have the lugnut hole lights. They're cool but dont buy the kit. Trailer supply store will have the same lights for around $6. Just splice into your factory lead.
