To stinger or not to stinger

While looking at which bumper I want to buy, I saw the Smittybilt XRC Stinger. What is your opinion on a stinger bumper in general; excessive or go for it?

If you might ever flop it forward, get the stinger. If it's just for looks, get it.

So, in summary - you should get it.


BTW, what brand are those fenders? That's some Mad Max looking shit right there.

Yeah, the Smittybilt's. You should see how wicked they look on a red rig. Jim (Family-JK) has them, and they are straight bitchin.

A lot of chit coming...

Stinger 2dr. 35's min. 4dr. 37's min. If your smaller kind of looks like you put the cart before the horse imo. however a stinger on a well equiped jeep that needs and uses and stinger for its purpose is badass!

"What is your opinion"
I don't like the look of them. Unless you really think you will need it for what it was designed for then it's just added weight and money you could have spent else where. IMAO

Maybe on the front skid of your modified raptor, out of place on a jeep stinger to me.

True, but that's only to cancel out the blue oval on the front...

I've got the LoD now, but if I had it to do over, I'd probably go with Poison Spyder.

In short... just do it.

X whatever for Poison Spyder. You should absolutely contact Marcus at River City Offroad ...and the stinger is a personal choice. I've seen video of it keeping someone from rolling end over end on a descent. I went with the BFH with Brawler bar ...kind of gives something 1/2 way in between nothing and a stinger.
