Love the build so far. Really looking forward to seeing the ACE bumper/bull-bar install and the winch. I am thinking of the same set up and want to see how it looks/installs.
I’ll definitely do a write up /video /pics when it comes. Let me know if there is any particular view or question you have. Based on my experience it’s taking the full 8 weeks - I placed my order on January 20 and last week @ACE Engineering advised it was 2 weeks out until shipping. Guessing they got slammed with orders when they had sales.

Based on the lead time, I assume there will be a lot of these on JT’s soon. If you could post a photo from the ‘side’ I would appreciate it. As I understand it, the farthest point from the grille is 13”. I have measured that in my garage and it should fit - but another view would be great. Good luck!

I’ll try to remember to do some measurements

Picked up my Premium Soft top at Fastenal. They were closed the public but pushing out deliveries upon appointment. Got it from FB market place. Cost $149 to ship it via Fastenal.
