Man they DO look good.
I haven't seen the rear bumper painted yet.

Love my Ace Rails.
I'm really leaning towards staying with Ace for bumpers. They look great!

Its linked with the rear gate, so anytime you swing open the rear gate the tire carrier moves along with it.

All you need to do is open the gate with your door handle button. Its all connected with stainless steel linkage because the gate and the tire rack have two different pivot points. It is very smooth and sturdy.

Wow. I love my ace sliders but I never once thought about the front bumper. It looks great.


Edit: 136 pounds? Holy s***!

Looking at the Mega Front Bumper Thread most full width bumpers run between 110-130 lbs

I did check that out, and this bumper is definitely on the higher end, weight wise.

136 before the winch..and skidplate.

Say I want to remove the spare tire/carrier while driving around town and put it back on when off road. Is it possible/easy to remove and store?

no. I mean you could, but you would hate yourself for it. its only 4 bolts, but its 150 lbs, and youd have to remove the spindle or find a creative way to secure it, and so the time would be a huge hassle.

RS,
Sweet looking JK. I really like your rails, I'm looking to get rid of my stock ones (can't stand that plastic), do yours act as a step as well, hard to get an idea of how much they stick out.

The ACE rails do stick out a bit and can be used as a step. They are usually paired up with the OE rubicon rock rails.

I can't wait to get my rear bumper. Already have the front. Just waiting for them to get finished. Lovin' the front.

Also like that they are local to me. Pick em up at the factory.
