yj-genral heres a sneak peak at mine, still need to weld on end caps to "finish" it off but its almost done!

got Rock Solid Off Road Fab to make me some Dring mount plates (1/4 plate with 3/4 thick dring tabs) for the stock locations $60 for the pair, not a bad deal if you ask me.

ill do a build up or write up when im done welding the ends on.





and ill get some better pics of everything as well.

I added tow hooks too when. Bolted my stinger bolted the hooks on and I put fog lights. I'm always iffy about the stinger but it causes such a pain to get under the hood but because I'm small I use it to get inside under my hood an put my ankles on the stinger plus i think I could use it to hold a tow strap behind it or a Jack
Looks good! I like stingers.........

none that I can think of...just spend the time to measure and re-measure, once you cut a hole, it's there. good luck and post a pic when you're done!

There's not much room in the bumper though, if I remember correctly, it's about 2.75".

Great mod! I put this mod on a few days ago. Not much of a difference though.
Installation was so easy, it's like I didn't even know it happened!
