Looks great!

Sure, buy a warn winch and use the fair lead license plate mount! Easy!

Ltblue Just got the bumper yesterday and brought it to get it powder-coated today.
The bumper and the skid powder-coated only cost $125!

Sometimes they flash after starting and sometimes after stopping, without ever tuning them on. I didn't think it was cool, so I got an sPod and now, no flash and they stay on when my high beams are on. My jw speakers flicker, but I'm living with that for now.

I have to get a set of ridgids for the ACE pro rear bumper also. Both of them will be the 6in sr light bars and will have to be hooked up to the spod.

There should be a way to splice them in and use the factory harness for the switch and battery for power. I couldn't find any reference to doing that though.

The Duallys are really bright. They light up everything around me like I'm in a well lit room, can't imagine what the D2s do.

JPi1 Great bumper, well worth the money, and powder coating is definitely the way to go, you won't regret it.

MikeK46 I also ran into this dilemma and am running it in the windshield for now...

04-14-2013 10:02 PM
Ltblue ^Wow that just gave me a great idea, you can use metal wires and loop it through the license plate screw holes to the skid ovals. Tie it from behind tight and no drilling required.

I live in NYC. If you don't do a winch drill 2 holes and bolt it on underneath on the skid. Here is what it will look like.

Ps mine has been on for over a year and no issues with the nypd

I like the bumper so much I couldn't see drilling holes. I live in VA and we need a front license plate too.

Below is the setup I ended up with. As alternate, you could get Poison Spyder's winch mount plate, a fairlead and the fairlead license plate mount. Just skip the winch for now.

I ordered my poison spyder and realized I had nowhere to put my front license plate, so now I got a winch. The front drop was more than expected. Last outing I think I hit every rock and tree stump.

rundm I agree with the PS getting over built but from the ACE stuff I have, I would also say that they over build their products too. The PS is still 500 more than the ACE for the rear with tire carrier. 2 week wait on PS, 4 on ACE. Got the jeep jamboree coming up in May. And that light bar on the ACE is sweeeet.

Got the same issue, Ace or Poison Spyder. The poison Spyder is really well built. Looking how it's structured, they definitely over engineered it.

Clean it good there was some residue from the welding on it. Not obvious. Do 3 or 4 coats of primer and 3 or 4 coats of paint. If you need any help, give me a holler.
