Rocky Road Bumper Bar/ Winch & ACC

Anyone in the Diesel world with the TECH II package (namely ACC and FCW) install one of these from Rocky Road Outfitters:

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee bumper kits, WK2

Looking for feedback/ advice before mine gets here. Pics would be sweet too!

Thanks!

Re: Rocky Road Bumper Bar/ Winch & ACC

Looks like a good setup. They have it installed on an Overland so it must work with all the tech.

I just got the bumper bar. No winch. I've got the ACC and I've heard of folks having alignment issues with the mounting set up they supply.

Re: Rocky Road Bumper Bar/ Winch & ACC

I really like this system and I would be someone to get the winch. I have ACC and I don't want to loose that feature so I guess I will wait until they have the design or installation tweaked before ordering.

I've got ACC. I've pulled the trigger on ordering mine and I'm waiting the 3 week downtime before I actually get it. There is a bracket they sell for the ACC. I'm taking current measurements of its depth/ distance from the lower fascia and its height above the fascia so its as close to the factory calibration as possible. From what I've gathered as long as its perpendicular to the ground, it should be fine. There are screws that alter the angle of the sensor once it's on. It has a field of 5 degrees up and down.

Worst case scenario I'll pay to have the dealer recalibrate its orientation once I've installed it.

I'm hoping I can help them revamp some of their instructions. They are a little oblique at best. Esp for the quadrlift bladder that sits on the front part. And there is no real final pic of the ACC sensor configuration, but I've talked to enough people who have done it to figure out how it's supposed to go.

If anyone else has done so, feel free to chime in!

Re: Rocky Road Bumper Bar/ Winch & ACC

I don't have ACC on mine. However, the combined weight of the bumper and winch lowered the front end significantly. I installed an OME lift so it wasn't an issue with my install. Otherwise the installation was straight forward.

I cut out the center of the grill. I could have just permanently installed a wireless remote, but I wanted access to the clutch lever. I also have access to on-board air from the center grill opening.

Re: Rocky Road Bumper Bar/ Winch & ACC

There is something I forgot to point out. I had to locate stand-offs for the hawse fairlead. I ended up using very thick bronze bushings along with longer bolts. There wasn't a specific reason for bronze except that's what I found that was the correct dimensions and was sturdy enough.

I actually was able to reinstall my ACC with zero issues. I'm shocked I haven't had an error or fault since, but happy.
