1.75" or 2" stinger tube
 
I'm having a stinger welded to a front bumper, and I have a choice of 1.75" or 2" tubing, Both look pretty good to me, but is one better than the other?

What type of tubing is the question and what other tubing do you have, if any ? I'm going with 1.75" DOM .120 wall

Wall thickness is another area to be looking at. If you had .250 wall... against .120 wall... I would go .120 for weight. .120 DOM is plenty for a stinger

The choice is yours if the tubing is seamless ( DOM ) I have 1.75" DOM Sliders that will match... that is my choice for me.

Thanks. I'm not sure, but I will ask. that was another thing I would like the sliders and front bumper tubing to match. When I originally asked, they did say it was DOM tubing and the 1.75" was .120 wall thickness, but I don't know what the 2" tubing was

If you want it all to match, find the sliders you want.... match the tubing for your stinger.

I haven't built my stinger yet, but I have modified my Rubi Rockers with sliders using 1.75" .120 wall DOM.

I used 2" HREW on the ones I built and stood my 5K pound truggy on it several times without fail.

I have a stinger bumper for sale, can email or message pics. I just removed from my jeep because its mostly driven on road and wanted something more friendly for that use. Let me know of interest. Will take best offer plus shipping cost if necessary. No low ballers please. Thanks.

Thanks for the offer, I originally thought about the Smittybilt. I like the design and all, but what I found to modify will be distinctively different than what most have, and will be totally American made by independant shops.

I build 2" tube stinger/bumpers that are completely bolt on & come with grade 8 bolts. The angle I use is made for TJ's with 33" tires. I normally build them with a 36" stinger hoop, and with a winch hook at the top. my stingers are like none I've seen before. if your interested PM me for shipping rates and to talk about the size of your hoop. The stingers I build have a wall thickness of .250. and weigh much less then a smittybuilt stinger/bumper. here is a picture of one of my first stinger/bumpers.

Would this fit on a stock bumper? Looks awesome and would love to be. Me to direct bolt to my stock bumper.

Rawkon 06-25-2012 12:25 AM

1.75 .120, if you use a stock bumper add an inlay and box the ends. if not it will bend and peel. http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-...56959050_n.jpg
