Stinger or classic bumper?

So I'm torn between a classic straight bumper or stinger style..any thoughts or opinions on these choices? I'm not going high dollar on these and mainly need a bumper with recovery points-Thanks!

I went with more of a prerunner style. I like it a lot more than the tubing bumpers I see, those are on every Jeep. I kept the factory style of the straight c channel as well, which I'm happy with.

I liked the stingers at first, but now I think they're too flashy. JMHO. Mud, I like the JEEP you welded to the top section lol, it really shows the spirit!

I would think it depends on how you plan to use your Jeep.

Stingers serve a purpose if I am not mistaken.
