If you think of stingers as front sliders, that is what you see them used for most. You drive up to a rock and slide your front end up until your wheels catch the rocks.

If you can run a string from the top of the stinger to the top of the windshield, then its a good length.

Depends on where over here you are. Down here in Arkansas, stingers, stubby bumpers, no bumpers on the rear, no fenders, beadlocks - no hassles. Whether it is law or not they don't bother you.

Upgrade your headlights so you can see, gauranteed ticket. Go figure

hmm..something I just thought about as to why that stinger is so massive is maybe because it is a four-door and it has so much more weight going forward than a 2 door...like, if it was short as a normal one the weight difference may be to great and it just goes over anyways regardless of the stinger...hard to explain what is going through my head but I know what I mean...

I ran no bumpers for the longest time and all I got was compliments from the cops haha...I also asked a state trooper about a fender flare, and they said it was okay to not even have a fender as long as you have a mud flap..which made me laugh..but ya, in Arkansas, the cops don't really care

Then you'd drive off into the water.

Also, your bumper doesn't have a radiator hoop...

Have you personally been there? If so, have you ever seen somebody fail and then roll into the water? lol

This place is in my back yard. A 25min drive away. Yes I have seen some one fall off. It wasn't pretty, even though the water was only 2ft deep.

You dont need much of an angle to get one tire up. But yes I know that my bumper doesnt have the radiator hoop but the stinger itself would prevent the hood/grille from crushing in. But like I said if I were to do it again and had the $ I would have gone with the Genright bumper with both mini stinger and hoop. When I ordered my Fab-fours bumper it was on clearance and couldnt beat the price at a bit under $350 shipped (where the genright is close to $700 plus at least $150 shipping). Unfortunately my bumper's stinger didnt look as big in the one pic they had posted on their site.
