i was about to tell you it wont work well without supports on the back of it, until i read your last statement hehe.
not back looking, i like the winch mounting. personally i am not a fan of huge stingers... that thing sticks out pretty far. and hopefully you never have to use it for its truly intended use (keeping you form flipping over forward).
im currently working on a stumby front bumper as well out of my stocker
Good work on putting that together, the stinger is HUGE lol. My only concern would be that from your wheeling pics it appears that your winch is going to get covered in mud etc on a regular basis, and isn't going to be real easy to maintain. It would make me worry about its life span, but all in all A+ for making what you wanted on your Jeep.

"The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius"-P.J.O'rourke
The stinger? Or the winch? The winch is easy... Just unbolt my front hooks, pull the little steel stock bumper and fairlead and then unbolt the winch from up top and pull straight out.... The stinger? Well..... You could take it out pretty easy.... Probably even quicker then the winch.... Just going to have to use and angle grinder and then a welder to put it back on
Great so far! Real solid winch and pulls way quicker then I expected! It only too us about 15 mins to totally unspool it then winch my buddy across the Pizza Hut parkin lot to stretch it out... Practically spooled itself too! I really was impressed with the quality of the product... It also comes with all kind of stuff you should have for a winch!
The only thing I'm thinking is the stinger isnt on a steep enough angle. I a straight edge on the farthest forward point on the tire pointing up should be the angle of the stinger. And of course like you said before have some good support behind it.
