Is it me, or do some of these installs seem to have the bumper tucked in closer?

The Rubis will have a gap, as their fenders are higher up than the Sport and Sahara models. As far as distance from the grill, that should be the same for all models, as the new bumper bolts to the existing jeep bumper mounts. However, there is some minor adjust-ability of the bumper wings, that could account for the slight difference you see. I will tell you that room for most winch solenoid boxes and wiring is tight - I think it's more the design of the sloping grill on JL that's issue, as I've heard others with different bumpers mention the same thing. I plan to remote mount my solenoid under the hood.

Thanks for the info. I'll be installing my bumper this weekend and this should come in handy.

Dont tighten everything down that'll save you so you can adjust it until you get it how you want it
