sevenservices ^ yup

use it to push your way up a hill
stop you from flipping forward

and it also dubs as a deer deflector so they don't end up on your lap if you hit one at a higher rate of speed.

Nashorn101 A stinger also can help you climb up, or climb down an embankment. As the stinger serves as a "slide" for your Jeep, if you are trying to approach a severely steep embankment, or back off of one (If that makes sense).

tyborbogdan not a wrangler but a buddys toyota drove off an embankment and nosedived, unfortunately he rolled, but the stinger saved his front end enough that we were able to recover the vehicle and he drove out.

Xpress If you don't have a full rollcage, they can also help keep you from being crushed (so long as it's build correctly). A stock jeep is pretty strong as is, but why risk it?

Ianbeaulieu so you dont slam down on a rock, it will just slide off with a stinger, and to keep you from rolling

Shrimp To keep you from tipping forward and rolling your jeep.
