Have to make sure it seats all the way down in the sleeve on bumper. Grease it and stand on it while rocking it gently back and forth. Then get the nut on and bring it home. Also make sure the cradle block is installed the right way.

Installed it on Sunday, finally got around to taking pics. LOVE it!! Took a while to dial it in to rest in the cradle properly. Had to adjust the plate on the bumper which gave it just enough to fit perfectly. Install is a absolute breeze minus the weight of this behemoth.


I was shocked by how light the factory rear is. At least the front had some heft to it. Rear is seriously like 20 pounds of hollow plastic.

I was rear ended today and this thing is solid.... I was at a stop waiting for a car in front of me to turn into a condo complex the speed limit on the road was 50 so I'm assuming the car that hit me was doing 30 or so since I heard their tires squealing.


And my jeep just got some paint chips/scuffs and it looks like it was pushed in some but I'm going to get a closer look Tomo to see what's rly going on with it.

Got mine in today, installed bumper and lights, will have to do tire swing tomorrow.
Had to drill out two holes in factory rail.

Holy crap are those light bright!

I'm gonna be re-using my previous one. It uses 2 bolts from the stock tire carrier, which were re-used with the Ace plate. And just fish the wires through one of the available holes. Once I pick up some grommets that fit.

Are you mounting it on top of the tire mount? Seems the holes didn't line up for me.

I still haven't done it, but I'm planning on using two of the bolts on the passenger side of the bracket that goes around the vent on the tailgate. That's where it was with the stock carrier. And since the bracket thing reused all existing holes this bracket "should" work fine. Ordered some rubber plugs/grommets to plug the spare tire bump stop holes. I will fish the wires through that. So once those come in the mail I'll tackle the project and toss up some pics. I can't for the life of me remember where I ordered the antenna bracket. It was all in a kit, bracket, antenna, coax cable and ground wire.

EDIT: FOUND IT!! http://www.cooltechllc.com/jeep/jk_gatemount.shtml

Sorry I haven't looked through the entire thread but this bumper is on my shortlist (although without the tire carrier) and I'm looking for a pic of the bumper with Bushwacker flats installed. Anyone?

Great price. I paid a little more, but I don't I'm d paying for great service Jason is great to deal with and is very helpful. I personally don't think you can beat having a direct line to an actually person when it come to customer service.

Thanks J! That means so much to hear. Yeah, we might not have the lowest prices in the world nor can give things away ($854.25 Delivered when retail is $885.00 and shipping is well over $100.00). But, we will always be here for you guys. You can call and talk to me, (the owner) anytime you would like. I run this bumper on my personal JK and can help you answer any questions you may have. When spending a ton of money, there is more to a purchase than just the price...

Damn! Jason emailed me my tracking number today! Only 18 days since I ordered... Looks like Ace has their lead time down a little. Shitty thing is I will be out of town all next week when it gets here... I will get some pictures up when I am back in town.

Very serious. I spoke with AJ at Ace before I ordered, and he told me the bumpers without light provisions did not have as long of a lead time as bumpers with light provisions. Although, he did tell me 4-6 weeks without lights and 6-8 weeks with lights, so I was still under that time frame. Can't wait to get back in town and get it installed.

Ah I see. Yeah I ordered with the light cut-outs. Congrats on the fast build time! Today's officially the 30th day since I ordered. 30 more days to go. Lol.
