ACE Stubby Front bumper

I'm looking at several front bumper options and I have tried to look for some info on the ACE stubby front bumper but couldn't find anything. Mainly I want to know if I still need to hack away at my brand new jeep (vacuum pump relocation and crash bar bracket trimming) or is that not an issue with the stubby bumper? Also, photos mounted would be helpful, thanks.

Try emailing or calling Ace. They're eager to help.

Definitely post what you find out. I'm considering their bumpers also. Just received their rails.

We can help!

Yes, you will have to relocate the vacuum pump but that is easy and something that you will have to do on a 2012 with about any bumpers. And yes, you will have to trim a SMALL 1"ish piece on the front. It is nothing that structual or anything. It is like Jeep just added more material than they needed to!

Let us know if we can help get you setup with these! We should be able to save you some cash!
