hardy1531 I like it man! It's yours not anyone elses. Kinda off the subject but what size are your MTRs and do you like them? What kinda mileage do you get? I am looking for some new tires to go with my new lift.

And it's actually a flag tab, not a light tab. When you go to the dunes on the other side of the state, they require a tall orange flag.

I would NOT hook a winch to the end of that stinger, even if you had frame tie ins. I would think that would be an accident waiting to happen.

Also, FWIW, PS comp stingers tie into the front upper coil spring bucket mounts for support. It will definitely not hold up if front pressure is put on it without any support.

I agree, in a perfect world, it would/will be tied to the cage in some way... Also on the list of things to do...

jeeperman Not me, but I had a shop fab it up for me... Sticks out a little, but the size/shape will save the radiator in a roll. The weight would be taken on that and the windshield frame...

1BLKJP Did you make that? Or is it Spyders? Damn that thing sure does stick out far. It's like your jeep is sticking it's tongue out.

My New Front Bumper

Here are some shots of my new front bumper! I think the next step is going to be flat fenders and comp cut rear corners!
