A standalone tire carrier, or one that comes with a bumper?

Supposedly one that comes with a bumper. I already like the bumper, hope the tire carrier looks and functions just as well.

They only show the swing, but I remember Adam saying there would be a different bumper for it. Hope it comes as a set and not one of those $600 for this and $800 for that deals. They have always done right in the past.

I have the ACE rails and just ordered the midwidth front bumper with stinger, saving the $ for the flat fenders.
Now I guess I'll have to start saving for the bumper/tire carrier next.

I was at there shop two weeks ago, saw a completed one and asked a few questions. It will open with the tailgate and it is a set not seperate parts. They seemed to be hoping for the beginning of march to release them. I can't wait. I'll be driving over there shortly after they are available. I love my sliders and Stubby stinger. My bumper is the actual one off their black 4 door shop rig. They are getting a 2012 that they have cool plans for.

heh, apparently I was the first order. Now the wait begins! So excited!

Trying to figure out how I'm going to install it, since it's 190 lbs. I'm thinking a clever combination of ratchet straps, a jack, and a case of beer

If I bothered to look at the link, I wouldve seen that :P
The carrier-less one is only 130. 60lbs for the tire carrier? Crikey

Oh man do I like the Ace stuff.
I like the designs and the build quality.
they've obviously got a good crew over there, but boy I bet they are hopping from all the filled pallet photos!

What's more it feels good supporting 'em.

Go Ace!
Gimme some time to scratch some scratch, you guys are in the running for my bumpers project!
