I just ordered ACE bumpers and sliders from Krawl Off Road. Thanks Jason for all your help. Next on the list, RK lift and Bilsteins!!!
I have an Ace Stubby and so far I like it very much. The pro series is a lot lighter, but it sounds like you need to do more modification to the jeep to get it to fit.Hey guys, new to the Jeep thing. Just bought a 2013 JK and I am in the process of transforming it from Malibu Barbie Jeep to something respectable. I was able to talk the wife into "steps" for her to get in so I ordered some ACE rock sliders after reading positive reviews on the forum. Next up is a front bumper. Would you recommend looking at ACE for the front bumper too? Stubby or Pro Series? I saw you speaking pretty highly of their bumpers. Any other bumpers I should look at? Any input would be great.
The Stubby install was fun and required a handful of mods. Minor relocation of the vacuum pump, minor trimming of the crash bar, enlarging the screw holes on the fog lamps, and filing down two small plastic tabs on the fog lamp lenses.Thanks guys. I'll check out the JCR bumpers. Sasquatch, do you have any pics with the stubby installed? Was the installation process pretty easy with the stubby? I watched the video of the pro series installation and I am certainly not doing that myself. I don't have the tools to do that first off, and I do not trust myself to do any frame modifications.
Hey Jason, Are you guys running any spacers up front? I don't want the rake when I install the RK max I'm going to order off you!KrawlOff-Road.com said:LOL yes you did! And thank you. Still tring to get caught up...
The RK lifts hold the weight of the ACE VERY WELL! We runn the ACE Stubby with tall stinger, ACE Narrow Fenders, and ACE Sliders along with a ton of other weight. We run the RK 2.5 Max Travel and it works great! Here is a picture:
