Question On Ace Rear Bumper Install

Don't want to make the same mistake with my rear bumper/tire carrier that I did with my front bumper and have to take it off numerous times because of an oversight. I have the rear fog light option on the Ace bumper, but I don't have the lights yet. Can I still install the lights after the bumper has been installed without taking the bumper off. Thanks Guys

Good question. Im looking at this bumper too. Just looking, it seems like youd be able to install the lights afterwards, but Im not sure how they actually mount. Could you post a pic of the underside of the bumper where the light actually mount please?

Install video

Ace recommends installing prior to. I'll look at it and see if it'll be a pain to do it after the install.

After watching the install video, I do not see any way of installing the lights without taking the bumper off, just can't see that theres any clearance.

I think I'm going to be ordering this bumper as well and this may be a stupid question, but what fog lights are you getting for this? And where did you order them from? Thanks for any help.

This is the set I got. I will end up using a different switch, but it has everything needed.

I also ordered the Delta LUG NUT 3rd brake light kit as well off Amazon since the OEM 3rd brake light will be gone.
