Ya, your hands go numb after a while, but it's a hard tail (no suspension) and has a small tank, so it can't be ridden long anyhow, 100 miles at a time.

Fabricated a front stinger

I've been wanting a stinger for a while now, but wasn't into the ones that are already out there, so I made one myself.

This one is just taller than my lights, protects my winch and allows me to 'bump' my off road buddys tire carriers. (tested)

I took 1.5" .120 wall DOM tube and bent it up, and welded it to 3" 3/8th angle. I notched the angle to sit around my welded in D rings and radiused the top inner corners to fit snug next to my winch plate.
I also welded in a piece of solid to hang the winch hook off of.

I used grade 8 1/2-13 hardware to attach it.

I made 4 of these yesterday, 1 for me, 1 for my buddy and have 2 incase we bust, bend or whatever them. may sell them after we've tested these for a while. But so far they've proven to be stronger than my buddys sh!ttybuilt tire carrier.
Installed.



Spare with primer on it so it doesn't rust. (no mounting holes or D ring notches, Dunno what it's gonna get mounted on so we'll wait till it's needed to do that)
