That sure looks great! I have been going back and forth all day on ordering the Rival bumper or the MC Concepts bumper and now I see this beauty.Worked on getting my Rugged Ridge Venator installed today. Hit a snag with the fitment of the bottom center piece (the gray piece). The 4 bolt holes were not quite wide enough. I had to widen the holes a bit. I used a file (old school and slow, but accurate). I had already hit an issue where there were a number of places (more than 6) where the powder coating had been chipped during the shipping process. Heavy metal is hard to ship and the packing will compress but Rugged Ridge should really have done a better job. I'm not really worried about the look (it's a bumper) but I am worried about exposed steel rusting. I got some flat black rustoleum and roughed up the surface with 150 grit sandpaper before painting. Seems ok now it's painted, so I did the install.
Besides the fitment of the bottom center piece, the bumper is not designed for LED fog lights so I still need to build a little aluminum bracket. And to top it all off, the damn winch I bought was a cable winch and not a synthetic rope winch. I thought i had bought synthetic rope. Duh. So no winch yet. Still, at least I have a bumper and feel like I can drive it around again.
Now I gotta figure out what to do with the plastic bumper. It's really dirty from the off-road trip 2 weeks ago so I'll clean it all up and put it back together and try Facebook Marketplace.
I see amazon has it with $100 discount but I couldn't find anywhere with the total weight of this bumper - would you have a rough guess of what that box weighed when they delivered it to you? lol.
Don't know how long this amazon discount will last so might have to pull the trigger tonight and then decide what to do about factory fog lights and looking at the 12k superwinch that I saw was down to 729.00 . Thx for posting these pics!
