    So.... the wheel studs are 2 on one side, and 1 on the other? Any way to get 1 up, 2 down or vice versa? My AEV 3rd brake light will work with either of those orientations, but not sideways....

    It's (2) on top, (1) on the bottom that's off to the right side. The (2) studs on top end up being the (2) that are longer apart from each other as oppose an upside down triangle....if that makes any sense.

    I took the plunge and ordered it up. I'm also going to relocate the license plate to the center of the tire and try out the ACE hammer town rear fascia since no body else has it yet. I'll report back with pics when I install it.

    According to my math, I should get about 90 pounds off the back of my jeep. The ACE bumper/carrier is 160 pounds. The EVO carrier is 45, ACE fascia and d-rings are 26, plus the factory hitch and plate relocation bracket.

    It showed up today. 2 trash bags of green peanuts later and some shop vac work, I got it extracted from the box. Sneaky EVO likes to put empty cardboard boxes in there all taped up. I opened them all just to make sure I wasn't throwing away any hardware or stickers. The tire mount was riding on the top corner of the carrier, so it gouged the metal pretty good. I had to hit it with texture black spray paint. The great news is the lugs are now 1 up, 2 down, so my AEV 3rd brake light will work. Now I need to change tactics on the license plate bracket- I have ACE on order because it has a 3rd brake like on it, but now I don't need that. Hmmm....

    Love those EVO peanuts! There are still plenty of them in my basement.

    Bummer about the scuffs.

    Great to hear about the studs, 1 up/2 down. Sucks about the scuffs. Keep us updated on the install.

    Am I the only one who gets upset about improper packaging causing damage? If I pay extra for powder coat, I expect it to come in free of damage...

    Haha when I got my stinger the box was filled with these infamous peanuts I thought I got them all out before I installed it however I have found quite a few still dropping to the bottom after a good drive...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
