Fabricated a front stinger

I've been wanting a stinger for a while now, but wasn't into the ones that are already out there, so I made one myself.

This one is just taller than my lights, protects my winch and allows me to 'bump' my off road buddys tire carriers. (tested)

I took 1.5" .120 wall DOM tube and bent it up, and welded it to 3" 3/8th angle. I notched the angle to sit around my welded in D rings and radiused the top inner corners to fit snug next to my winch plate.
I also welded in a piece of solid to hang the winch hook off of.

I used grade 8 1/2-13 hardware to attach it.

I made 4 of these yesterday, 1 for me, 1 for my buddy and have 2 incase we bust, bend or whatever them. may sell them after we've tested these for a while. But so far they've proven to be stronger than my buddys sh!ttybuilt tire carrier.
Installed.



Spare with primer on it so it doesn't rust. (no mounting holes or D ring notches, Dunno what it's gonna get mounted on so we'll wait till it's needed to do that)

Nice, and you're wearing my favorite green plaid shirt! Lemme ask you this, doesn't al the blood run to your shoulders from your hands when you ride like that for a long time? Seems to me it would be a bit of a problem... I've always wondered about that, but never felt comfortable asking...

Ya, your hands go numb after a while, but it's a hard tail (no suspension) and has a small tank, so it can't be ridden long anyhow, 100 miles at a time.
