Well I cant speak for the ones that stay below hood level but from my understanding the stingers that sit above hood level are for protection in roll- overs. They are supposed to prevent the hood from crushing in and causing damage to the radiator and moving parts. That way you can right side up the jeep and hopfully still drive home. They are also supposed to prevent the jeep from settling roof down which in my opinion is the worst position to end up.

And on a side note they do make J walkers think twice!
