Sense loosing the factory third brake light. I was thinking the lugnut led would be a good idea or I was toying with the idea of taking the third brake like from the factory tire mount cutting it and somehow mounting it behind the ace cutout in the bumper and wiring it to a taillight brake light. I think it would look cool but don't know it people would really see it because its low. Any thoughts on this or should I just go with the led lugnut brake lights from delta? Or do both?

Don't do the Delta light. You can buy the lights at a trailer supply store or online for a fraction of the cost. I think like $6. Then splice into the factory harness.

Do it behind and ACE Logo and lets add a lift to get it up higher so everyone can see!

I already got a teraflex 4dr 2.5" it on it. I went with the 4dr kit because I knew it would sag some with the ace bumper.

Not to fond of the tire so high up. I work in a machine shop and might think of somthing to drop it like 1.5 inches or 2. It does sit rather high but being 5'11" I can still see out the back somewhat. Other then that I love it plus my jeep doesn't look like I have a doughnut on the back anymore lol

Took the tire and and tire mount off. The swing arm hasn't settled correctly and was about and inch of two high. Fixed that and flipped to bushings I had backwards. It does rest better against the plastic slide thing and swings open with more ease. I'll let y'all know if it made a difference as far as visibility tomorrow.

Tire now sits an inch or two lower so visibility is slightly better. I'm more happy that is sits more snug against the mount

I ordered 3/12. Got 2 of the boxes yesterday and the 3rd box late today. Yeah! So bummed I won't have time this weekend to install it!

Dropped off my poison spyder brawler lite front bumper to get powder coated today since I finally had a piece of the Ace rear bumper I could take up there with me for matching powder coat.

Gonna be a busy girl soon! Front, rear and winch.......oh yeah!

I was kind of worried about the tire sitting high. I wish they could have figured out a way to make it adjustable. I'm 5'5" so might be an issue.

I'm sure it will look great. Still waiting on mine. Ordered on 3/12. Not sure how a company puts out a product in 5 weeks when they have people that have been waiting for 8 and 9 weeks.

Not your fault, I didn't check my email for like 2 days and it was from the day before. Doesn't matter anyways, I was home when the man in brown dropped it off. Talk about heavy! Plus it only took 2 days to get here.

Has anyone noticed any sag? I have a JKUR with a RK 2.5" max travel and I just measured the wheel gap at all four wheels and got this:

Front passenger: 7.5"
Front driver: 8"
Rear passenger: 6"
Rear driver: 6.5"

This doesn't seem right to me. I only have the ace rear bumper and front rampage bumper. I thought the RK lift would be able to handle this but a 1.5" difference doesn't seem right.

I added pictures to show it, hopefully someone will have some input. I know adding rear spacers is the easy answer, but I don't think I should have that big of a difference to start.

Damn you! I got a quote from Krawl Offroad of just under $1k shipped. Wish I would have seen this a month ago! Congrats on a great deal.

I'm having a problem installing. The swing arm is too high for the plastic/rubber cradle. We have the plate that bolts to the door as high as we can move it and the swing arm seems sucked down as much as it can go. It's way off. We are at a loss of what to do. Was this your problem too? Guess I will be calling Ace on monday.

Anyone else run into this prob or have any suggestions. Thanks!

Is the swing are down all the way? The cradle on mine has rub marks from the swing arm sitting too high. If its not down all the way, completely detach the swing arm and get it to go down
