Rugged Ridge could tell you what's behind the name, but they would prefer to define it. Venator represents a sharp departure from typical bumper design - a dominant form, carefully crafted in clay and then forged in steel. Muscular contours and chiseled facets combine with the Venators radical arches, creating a bumper that clearly complements the overall aesthetics of the JL / JT, rather than fighting them. It's like nothing you've seen yet, but we should warn you, the Venator contains some intense visual content- viewer discretion is advised.
This bumper you have to build from the ground up. Nothing lined up at all. Fog light bracket holes did not line up, bottom plate, top plate and horrible instructions. A lot of time with trial and error. You will spend hours trying to only tighten and loosen bolts to get it to fit. It still never fit and will be removing what I could get put on. Will be looking for another bumper that you can just bolt on and not build and force bolts and nuts together. You would think the bolt patterns would be lined up properly if you have to put it together. Do not buy this unless you want an all day project. I was installing it on a 2020 Gladiator.
