First time Jeep owner, have question re:stinger bar

My husband and I just bought a older model Jeep Wrangler (98). It had what I thought to be a brush or grille guard on it, but the more I look on the internet, it doesn't match the pictures. It is a thick metal bar that is shaped like an upside down V, very tall and extends way out in front of the jeep. Is that a stinger bar? My son is learning to drive a stick on the Jeep so I took it off and want to sell it. It has the Olympic 4 x 4 Product (stamped into metal ) but cannot find anything exactly like it on the internet...not even on the Olympic 4 x 4 Product website. It must be an older model. Before I sell it, I thought I need to find out what it actually is and what a stinger bar is used for. Thanks in advance for any input. Sorry if my question is ridiculous, but we have never owned a Jeep. I'm just a mom trying to learn a little about the vehicle we just bought. Thanks!

Ya, it sounds like a stinger.

If you want/need more information on things technical, I recommend you post on one of our tech forum areas here. There is a drop-down menu at the bottom of this page.

in the mean time . . .

Welcome to the Forum

The stinger is used to prevent roll over on steep descending trails.
