Installed our new Ace front bumper...

Since the stove rehab didn't cost as much as budgeted, Hubster said we could get Blue a new bumper. Yay!
We chose the Ace Pro Series with Bull bar. A little unbolting, cutting, drilling, grinding and painting then the thing slips right on!

Thanks to Bulldozer, Spacemonkey and the mini monkeys for coming over and hanging out and helping with the finish install. Always nice to have Jeeperpeeps to hang out with when working on the Blue.

Online album of the install is at http://bluesjeepadventures.shutterfly.com/pictures/1341

A few shots...

Looks great! Is it going to be any weaker with 1/2 as many bolts? I'm sure Ace took that into consideration tho. I like the looks!

Looks good , how do you like it so far? I am waiting for my pro series rear bumper and was considering this for the front bumper myself. I was just waiting to see one in person, I live near Ace Engineering. Hopefully will be getting my rock rails this week too. Nice Jeep and color by the way reminds me of my cosmos blue.

Thanks folks!

Seems strong enough to me. It is solid and has long bolts that go all the way through the frame rails.

I am planning to paint the bolts black one of these days.

Hey Blue all the way!! Here are pics of putting on the rear bumper too ~ Message ~ give you an idea on how the rear looks with the blue.
