building a stinger

So a buddy in the jeep club said he would help me build up a stinger for only the cost of materials. I have seen his and he is qualified to do welding that is up to par.

That being said,

what thickness do should i have the tubing?
what braces should I have for it?
Other suggestions?
Dimensions? Height, distance out from vehicle, etc.

I will be designing it myself for the most part (engineering background). I know somewhat about structures and bracing, but figured I would ask the jeep gods their advice and wisdom.

Pictures along with explanations would be more than welcome.
