Ace Pro Series Bumpers!

Today I put in my order for Ace's Pro Series front bull bar with 20" light bar provision with light bar and Pro Series rear bumper with tire carrier, hi lift mount, and two 6" light bar provisions with light bars! It's a amazing deal, savings of over $800 if you order by the end of Monday Dec 2nd. Although I haven't received them yet I have heard amazing reviews about them! They are made from 1/4" steel unlike most other companies which are 3/16". Everything comes with Ace's lifetime warranty! Pictures to come once I receive them in 6-8 weeks!

Have PRO fronts on both of ours with the SR20s and the rear on mine with SR6s- great bumpers at a great price

Awesome I can't wait! Can you tell a difference in the way your jeep drives with all that extra weight?

You might be able to tell- I upgraded my wife's JK to 18/59 JKU springs which brought it back up to where it was at before the bumpers/winch and this past weekend installed the Teraflex leveling kit......also upgraded my 10A JK to 10A JKU springs and it is at about the same height as my wife's with springs+spacers. The stiffer springs not only return the height you lose but also some of the control.

Nice, I ordered both of those on Friday and looking forward to getting them all hooked up. Got a spod and also ordered those JKU 10a springs, although they are on back order. It'll be a long couple of months for sure.

I've been eyeballing the rear bumper but I saw a rumor some where that it weighs almost 200lbs... Is that true??

I don't think it weighs 200lbs (at least mine without the tire carrier did not) but it is heavy. You can't defy gravity, it is a 1/4" thick steel bumper and built to take some punishment.

Has anyone received an ETA on the rear bumper ship timing from a Black Friday order? We ordered a bunch of things. The normal product details says it may take 6 weeks for delivery. But I'm wondering if they got ahead of the curve in building prior to the sale.

Not sure about the Black Friday orders but I ordered mine back in September and just got it a couple of weeks ago......longer than the 6 weeks they state on the website. But, it was worth the wait.

If anything my jeep could use a little lowering... It's a 2010 2 door and has a 3.5 inch lift from rubicon express which by the way is awesome just a lot of lift with 33s as of now haha. I'm sure it will look sweet with 35s next but for now, let's just say it has a good amount of clearance. If I can remember right the front both stinger and bull bar are 66lbs and rear is around 100lbs, with a tire carrier I think it's 160lbs

In another thread, Ace said the rear carrier with tire carrier is 190 lbs. shipped, and the shipping material is about 30 lbs., so it's around 160 lbs. My Ace rear bumper without tire carrier was 110 lbs. shipped, so I assume it's 85-90 lbs. It's incredibly sturdy and has great departure angle.

Nice Jeep! How effective are the 2 light bars in the rear at lighting up what's behind you when in reverse?

The rigid sr6's are combo lights that do a great job of lighting up behind the jeep. I believe they also now have Lifetime lights that will fit in the Ace mounts that are cheaper, but I've been very happy with the rigids.

Looks like ACE got alot of orders! I ordered my Pro series front Friday morning when I got home from work. Cant wait to get it!

I never seen or noticed when I ordered, is the 20" a spot or flood beam?

It's a great bumper for a great price. I have a RR XHD front bumper that I've had for a couple of years, but I've been tempted to sell my RR bumper and order the Ace pro series front bumper.

I also have Ace rock rails that have taken a lot of abuse and have held up great. I've just needed to touch them up with paint occasionally after scraping them against rocks, trees, etc.

I will hopefully be ordering some ace rock rails from Jason over at KrawlOff-Road pretty soon I can't wait. My jeep has the plastic steps A.K.A the mud collectors. I cannot wait to get rid of them

Yep, Jason will take care of you. One of the very first mods I did was selling my plastic steps on CL and replacing them with Ace rails through KOR.

$125. I used that to buy some Rubi sliders, also on CL for the same amount, to go with the Ace rails.

Not sure if this is worth a separate thread. But where are folks mounting a CB antenna on the Ace rear bumper with tire carrier? And what mount did you use? I would prefer to have it off the tire carrier as opposed to the license plate or a forward location. Also, with a mounting in that area, did you go with the 3 or 4 foot stick?

Has anyone received a order confirmation for ace? I know they probably got a crap load of orders, but I was just curious and hoping I didn't get forgotten lol

Several people posted in the Black Friday thread that ACE called them yesterday. I got a call myself, but I had sent them an email asking for a call. Not sure if they would have called without it.

I did receive a conformation email. No shipping date, but an order number. I would call if you didn't get one.
