Looking at Venator front bumper. Not sure If i intend to get a winch, but I really like that bumper! Anyone install it without winch? I don't think there is a winch delete plate to cover the top so I am wondering how it will look with that hole empty?

I’ve got the Venator without a winch - unfortunately they don’t make a winch cover.
I thought it would bother me but I don’t notice it any more!

Nice ...

How does that work with the front parking sensors from the plastic UK standard bumper ?

It doesn’t 😂
I could have had a front camera installed as I’ve got a Tazer but decided it wasn’t really worth it!

Thanks for the pic. I agree it doesn't look bad. I keep going back and forth between this one, the Spartacus, DV8 modular an the Rubi steel. Still not sure

I've been thinking about the Venator bumper too but some of the reviews I've seen make me think the quality isn't great and the install can be a problem.

Yup! That’s why I keep going back and forth!

No install issues at all - just took it easy and followed the instructions.
Quality seems on par with all of the others I've seen.
It just looks a bit different which is why I went for it.

Thanks. I'll probably give it a try. I think it looks awesome. Other than the Mopar bumper, this is the only one I really like.

Hey! I just bought this bumper but will be welding on my own "overrider" bar. Could you please tell me the measurements between the two bolt holes on the bumper for mounting please? I would really appreciate it. Also, could you tell me the height of the overrider bar? I can't find any schematics for it online. Thanks!!
