Thanks! I never noticed. Double bonus, now my antenna fits on the jeep in the garage. Hope it works, looks like a lot of metal interference.

danrb Can anyone tell me where to get the grommets to fill the new holes in the back tailgate?

danrb Just finished installing the bumper and tire carrier. Bumper was real hard and the tire carrier was easy.

The bumper had really tight clearances. I had to put the end bolts on first and then the center bolts. Took way to long. The tire carrier took 30 minutes with adjustments. Attachment 1090281

I had the teraflex rear tire carrier cb mount previously, so I flipped it backwards, got spacers so it wouldn't hit the tailgate but short enough to not interfere with tire swing, and got long enough bolts to attach it. Had to reroute cable out the vent. Works good for me, cost me maybe 5-10$ for other stuff.

ClayR I ordered both the rear bumper with tire carrier and pro series front stubby with stinger along with the lifetime LEDs. Thanks for the great deals yesterday!

rundm I haven't put my tire carrier on yet but the pro series rear with those lights is the bomb. My wife can actually see when she is backing up now. Tire carrier getting put on in the next couple of weeks.

I didn't need a tire carrier, and the JCR standard rear bumper by itself is only about 65 pounds. I still really like your bumper, though, so please don't think my choice was easy or that I'm disparaging your product in any way!

I had this issue as well and ended up filing the plastic on either side of the Rigid mounting tabs down flush with the metal- no alterations made to the bumper. My guess is the design was updated since they also have the white RI emblems on either side that my other lights don't have, my 20" RI light bars don't have the plastic mounting tab inserts either and fit fine in the PRO Front bumpers.

brighton ^^That's a nice idea with the magnetic mount. Thanks for the link.

wrh3 Just installed my rear ACE PRO bumper last week. The weld quality was not as good as on the ACE bumper I ordered last year for my wife (noticed the same thing with my ACE Pro front so not isolated to this part), I had to grind down the edges with a grinder and paint where the weld did not travel to the ends/edges and left some sharp points, but it looks OK now and the price was still better than PS and some of the others:



I also noticed some droop after installing this and the front bumper/winch (to be expected so no surprise) but installing some JKU springs (from a like model 10A) brought it back to where it was at prior.

I took the teraflex tire mount one, flipped it around to drivers side and used spacers so it would clear the gate yet not get hit by the swing arm. Took a little fiddling and few cuts with the dremel, but finally got it right.
Oh, and longer bolts too of course.

What are these "Lifetime LEDs" you're referring to?
