shaffer stinger installed

Bought this off of a fellow forum member last week and got it painted and mounted and decided to take a few pics. Not a bad bumper at all . I like it. Just needs recovery points now (why they made a bumper with none baffles me)

Some "backyard" shots

I think with a winch in there it may look more complete. Also removing the bumper support cross piece may help as it looks kind of odd.

Do you have side on pics, I'm a fan of stingers

It is welded, but it doesn't do much. Maybe something like the Rugged Ridge skid plate would work with it?

im not either..this one looks alot bigger in pictures. I picked it up in the trunk of a honda civic. lol in the pics it looks like its 4 feet long.

yeah its a nice back yard! thats the elk mtn range. In the valley there is the beginning of Lead King Basin and Schofield pass trails. not a real hard trail but some of the best scenery in the lower 48 i guarantee!

pic i took last summer on lead king

well i came from west chester pa 1 year ago so you can too! The east coast seems stupid after wheeling freely out here for a year now. Moab is 3 hours away..the pic was taken a 1/2 hour from my apartment.

Man that's one nice backyard to have, love the bumper, never cared for stingers but I like this one. You'll have to do some custom recovery points for it, no biggie.

That is a nice looking setup and I'm totally envious of the back yard.

+1 on ditching the front cross member. I think an Expedition One Rubi Skid would look good if you wanted to box in the frame rails and you'd still have more clearance up front. I don't own one, but they look like a good idea.

A couple minutes with a sawzall will take care of that lower cross member.

Stinger looks good, really surprised that they built it without recovery points tho.

I wonder how long it took the original owner to get it. I hope the quality is better than my tube fenders. Mine looks like a 3 year old did the welding.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH SHAFFERS OFFROAD. YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU DID..

thanks guys...i really dont have a problem with the crossmember. Why get rid of it? for clearance for asthetics? i've run all over colorado and moab with my stock airdam on and have never touched it with a rock. so if i hit up that high i doubt my little rig will make it over it

"looks good bud. glad to see you over here you going wheelin with us this weekend?"

Well i got banned from posting pics of my jeep at the other forum so i got to show it off somewhere!

Well you certainly won't get banned over here for showing pics of your Jeep.

Looks good, that's surely a back yard to be proud of and nice skills with the camera too

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...
