How was the winch and lights install?
Wasn't as bad as I thought the only thing that was hard was drilling holes in that Ace bumper for the winch (that some thick steel ) you better have some new drills Ace builds them strong !!!!!

Found a set "like new" for $200
$245 + shipping for new. If they are the real thing and local, you can probably save $100. Touch em up with rustoleum flat black or bed liner.

Not sure if the lifetime warentee transfers.

From Ace:
Here is what we typically do for the pump re-locate for our bumpers. Here are a few pics during the process. We remove the factory welded threaded studs and use new hardware to mount pump on the opposite side of the factory pump bracket. This lowers the pump about 2 inches giving enough room for bumper clearance.

Also trim the crash bar bracket in two spots. These brackets have changed over the years and are not always the same. Here is a pic below the tape we trim to keep a even height with the cross bar.
The extra metal on the crash bar started showing up in the '11s. Anything earlier than that and you don't have to remove any material. I believe the vacuum pump relo is only on the '12s.

Also, if you start in the upper right hand corner, facing the jeep / driver side, and then do bottom left hand corner, facing the jeep / passenger side, all the other bolts should fit in without any extra drilling. I found a pipe just smaller than the holes and a 5lb hammer helped moving it around as I tightened up the bolts. I would also suggest getting some grade 8 hardware for the nuts and bolts on the front bumper.

1CrzyCelt BW,
would you mind posting something in this thread about your front bumper? This is an effort to make a consolidated list/review of front bumpers:

Bwgas No mods but I enlarge the bolt hole on driver side upper right and upper bolt hole left hand side. Passenger side made it real easy then. I had factory fog lights will fit in nice had to drill out the holes a little on the fog lights mounting brackets to use aces screws which work great.
