The following should only be attempted by trained professionals
By attaching a cable pulley at the top of the stinger (if well made) the cable of the winch can pull up on a stuck vehicle in a ditch or behind a log, instead of pulling the vehicle directly into the obstruction. Thus allowing the stuck vehicle to roll over the obstruction instead of being cinched into the obstruction.
The stinger with a cable pulley provides a better angle for pulling logs out of the woods, keeping the leading edge of the log out of the dirt.
The stinger with a cable pulley provides short lift capability to lift a vehicle for tire repair or other maintenance when a high lift jack is not available.
The stinger with a cable pulley provides a short lift capacity for lifting an engine block to move it.
The stinger in conjunction with a pipe end support on the bumper, allows a hardened thick wall pipe with a cable pulley on the end to rest within the stinger (some minor engineering may be needed) to create a lifting bar for high lift needs such as motor extraction/installation from/into a vehicle.
Sidebar: The winch with a pipe and eyebolt/nut/washers can be used to pull/install some pressed bearings (not easy, but doable)
The stinger can help protect the front grill & radiator when boring through brush and trees.
The stinger (if gusseted) can provide some protection for the radiator from swarming bugs that would otherwise fill in the radiator.
The stinger provides an acute reference when approaching a tree or wall.
The stinger is an ideal anchor (openly accessible and no sharp edges) when repelling down cliffs; wheels blocked/deflated.
The stinger is an ideal visible rope connection when pulling tension on a rope to control the direction of tree fall when cutting down a tree. Whenever pulling with a rope or chain throw something like a tarp over the midpoint of the rope or chain to prevent something from breaking loose and hitting the Jeep (you).
The stinger provides an easy means of securing the jeep to a tree or pole as a form of theft deterrent.
The stinger in collaboration with a 2x4 of a useful length can be used in conjunction with the winch to break the tire bead loose from the rim.
[highly dangerous due to pinch points] The stinger with the help of a second person can be used to break the bead of a tire by compressing the tire against a tree.
By wrapping the winch cable around the perimeter of a tire that the tire bead has separated (following repair of tire for instance) the tire can be wedged between the stinger and the bumper to force the rubber bead out against the rim so that air can fill the tire.
By placing life cushions (boat) on the stinger (depending upon configuration), this creates a comfortable place to sit or lay-back and read or otherwise soak up some sun (feet on the hood).
The stinger provides some end-over protection as previously cited; better yet, don't end-over your Jeep.
The stinger provides an ideal place to tie off a horse.
Provides a place to mount an observation chair (with seat-belt and properly engineered) for taking pictures/video of extreme-sports/movie-sets.
The stinger provides an ideal anchor for one end of a hammock or simple canvass built tent/rain-cover (the other end a tree)
The stinger provides an easy mounting location for two bicycles (one on top, lashed to one underneath).
[highly dangerous, needs professional engineering] The stinger provides a tie off point for bungee jumping.
The stinger can be used as a lift point for changing front tires.
The stinger can be used to mount driver remotely operated devices like: camera, water cannon (fire fighting, beach party
, parade gizmo), propane cannon (noise maker), HD spotlight, ham radio antenna, high zoom spotting scope, animatronics
The stinger, a cable pulley, the winch, and tow connectors (if installed) provides the connection points for a mini fork-lift, or bale spear (moving hay bales).
The stinger provides a secure tie-off point for kites.
The stinger provides a stable anchor for mounting a clamped on vise or other tools for field work.
The stinger provides a place to securely mount a removable satellite dish (now that's roughing it).
The stinger provides a place to securely mount a loud speaker for public address, event music...
The stinger provides a place to mount a lighted Christmas tree, over-sized football helmet, long-horn stear horns, valentine's heart, or other holiday/event ornamentation (don't obstruct your driving vision).
The stinger provides an alternate location to mount a second spare tire; slung from under stinger.
A stinger and related frame work that is not strong enough to handle end-over forces is not useful for end-over protection. But, as shown above, you can come up with a large variety of other uses.
