Has anyone made their own stinger for their jeep? I want to make one so I don't have
To pay as much for it. Anyone have pictures or plans of how they made theirs?

Get a a piece of pipe, bend it how you like it, cut off the end to the length and angle you want, weld it to the bumper. Its not really that difficult.

02 KJ- Sold
92 YJ- Totaled
04 TJ- Brought back from near death
Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

I have heard that you should make it at the greatest angle your jeep can climb. What is the best way to determine this

climb until jeep goes over backward and then you have your baseline

Find stock approach angle, steepen it a bit depending on how much higher your front bumper is due to suspension lift + tires. Sure there's a cool formula out there for it but that's where your research comes in
Poverty/College Budget 2004 TJ 2.5" RC coils, 1.25" BL, M95 shocks 4.5" up 4.75" down travel front, 4.7" up, 5.3" down rear

Live around Philly or south Jersey? Come wheeling or wrenching! Look in here \/\/\/
