Rugged Ridge Venator Front Bumper Reviews
Overall great looking bumper. Might not be the strongest but looks stock with flair. Doesn't look like someone welded it in their shop. Its basically a winch tray with trim pieces. The recovery points are nice...that basically all you need.
Packaging was extremely well put together. I was impressed with the packaging. No instructions but you can easily download them on the net/Quadratec.
The trick is on installing this, read the directions regarding putting it together loosely because you have to put the shell on and adjust accordingly and then tighten the frame bolts. As for the fog light trim pieces...horrible horrible design...they pop off incredibly easy so I did what one person did on here is to slip the plastic trim under the winch cover...that will hold them in place....but kind of looks goofy. They need to come up with some sort of clip system for these.
All that said...nice bumper and light weight.
Very nice bumper. Solid construction and pretty easy to install. Some tight tolerances with some of the parts, but I was able to get it all together and looking good.
Overal great bumper! Great look and vehicle fitment. The design of this bumper is an amazing pair with the JL and JT. Installed on a 2018 JL.
Box was missing instructions, Quadratec thankfully had instructions posted on their website, however, directions are not every detailed, parts do not exact match what was supplied, had a lot of extra nuts and bolts / washers (Yes I triple checked everything). Lower skid plate (grey) did not light up to mounting brackets and took some drilling to line up, also it seems fairly thin and is stamped steel, which will bend or puncture on the first rock it encounters.
For future bumpers it Would be nice to see nuts and bolts in individual bags and labeled, for simplicity a required tool list, more detailed instructions.
Only major concern is the plastic fog light bezels, if they bolted in or had some type of retaining clip, that would be a huge improvement. The bezel snugs between three different parts, which took some time to get light up perfectly, when the outer wheel cover flexes the bezel pops out so I pop them out and store them in the vehicle when on the trail.
