looks sweet man, it seems like it could have the benefit of a stinger without having the tendency to pitch you left or right if you happen to go nose-first. I've always wondered why nobody makes a grill guard like this

Awesome dude! Now you just need to wrap a big *** tow strap around that thing and get you a winch. Good work!

I like it, for the price you cant beat it! I like that better than the traditional stinger's that you buy from 4wheel parts haha. It would look even better with a monster winch up there but those arn't 8 bucks... unfortunatly.

Not bad at all! I think it looks a bit better (considering the squareness) than a normal stinger. And eight bucks to boot!

Newyj i emailed them too you.

You never know I've worked some stranger deals out so $8 for a winch wouldn't be the strangest deal I've ever gotten. I'll prolly get one post deployment anyways.

I have the tow strap to wrap around it but havn't got a chance.

I never really liked the normal stinger but wanted some of the benefits and for $8 I'll break the pipe and build a new one. It's not as tall as a normal stinger. I can see it over the hood but its just the top bar of it.

So you dont tip forward and roll, which would smash the whole front of your rig and cause damage. Useful when going down hills/rocks/creekbeds ect
