Comments? Stinger, Louver, Scoop??

Had stinger put on Tuesday. A/T Fab http://www.allterrainfabrication.net/ did a great job...









I got my inspiration from... PhilD. Still not sure what kind of cross bar I wish to put in... simple tube, design, JKO or MAVERICK logo, incorporate a bolt hole to mount a 'leader' flag...

Nice stinger that thing looks wicked!

Im not sure how i feel about the louver scoop combo though.....I feel like they shouljd be in the same place just on opposite sides of the hood. They look offset though?

Either way, sick rig!

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Thanks for the feedback. Being an engineer I prefer things symmetrical, but... this is function. They are a bit offset... centering the louver between the underframe to maximize effectiveness and the scoop is over the box. I could pusht the scoop back even with the louver, but then the opening to the airbox would be towards the middle of the scoop while I wanted it towards the rear. Although... I will still need to dam the backside to direct the airflow as the hole will not be in the fat back.

Not sure of the sticer reference, but the manufacturer's sticker will soon come off. I will simply retain MAVERICK, forum references, and AMSOIL (as I am a dealer).

I think that stinger looks awesome.

BUT... if you wheel Moab, you're going to wish you didn't have it on many of the "waterfall" obsacles. You have decreased your approach angle significantly.

Aaaah, did not realize the scoop and louver were functional! That makes all the difference in the world (to me anyway)

That's a badass rig all the way.

Not yet... only mocked up for the photos. Both need paint. The louver needs studs welded for mounting.

Questions about the scoop:

where did you get it and do you know how much clearance does it add i.e. how high is it internally?

Thanks...

The only thing I question is having the tubes between the stinger and the grill hoop covering the headlights.

Didn't observe and impact... maybe I will after installing HID.

OK...stoopid question...but what is the purpose of the stinger bars? You have lots of cows or sheep in your area you need pushed to the side?

I see them on lots of the rigs....but have never really understood the purpose.

Supposed to keep you from flopping end over coming down a steep. Looks like that one might fold back and smash into the grill though. Needs some gussets down low and an extra pair of supports.

My though also, but A/T advised otherwise which I agree becasue the weak point would be the bumper connection. Will follow-up tying back to the frame once my PSC flares are installed.

Stinger looks great but like PhilD, I'm partial.

I think you should just run the scoop over the airbox and forget the louver all together. It will give the Jeep an off-road rally look.

09 Unlimited Rubicon Flame Red
~8.5" TeraFlex LCG Long Arm
~41x14.50 Interco IROK Radials
~20x10 RBP-93R wheels with red inserts

~Posion Spyder Crusher flares, Rock Brawler Bumper, Rocker Knockers w/sliders and Hawse fairlead
~Warn 9.5ti Winch w/synthetic line
~Rhino Lining tub
~Katzkin interior
~10lb Powertank & VIAR Xtreme

The louver is located where the heat seems to be focused. Each time I started with frost or ice on the hood.... that location was the first to melt off.

Looks like it is located close to where mine is also. I spent a while with an IR thermometer looking for hot spots and found the same as you.
