Thanks man. I'm having second thoughts on the stinger. I don't know if I'm quite down with the look yet, I would like the functionality of it though. What do you guys think?

Here's some pics of the bumper progress. Mounts are done, will be working on shaping the bumper now and adding tow points.

Two bolts will go through bumper then through 1/4" plate welded here.

And here

Also will be mounted directly to the frame using a couple pieces of angle.
forumrunner_20120118_210402.jpg

Here's the mock up. It will be box and have the classic angled cut ups at the ends.
