Front Stinger plate bumper build

I just finished my design for my front bumper and started building today. Now that I have my back bumper built the front is jealous Here is a picture of the back one first of all. I want it to match with it well as a set. I don't have the plate yet, but I do have some tubing so I started the stinger. I am totally in love with the design... narcissistic I know. I am calling this model the Oryx. It is going to be all 3/16 plate. I am using it as sort of a showcase of my work to show prospective clients... and just because its cool haha

Wow that front bumper/stinger looks bad A$$! To be honest I never really liked the look of stingers, but I love the 2 peaces coming back at the jeep. This is the first stinger Idea I like... I give it 2 thumbs up!

looks good, what are those tubes going into the grill going to tie into?

haha I knew that was going to come up eventually. They are just going to connect through the grill solely for looks. The mounting of the bumper and the stinger are independent of them. If they ever get pushed in I may have to get a new grill yes, but in that case I may have other issues haha I actually wanted to go through the fenders then onto the frame originally but I couldn't get it to look right. i may still because I realize its a little sketch good call

Wow very cool bumper.

I like it, although the 2 bars going back to the grill are pointless. Why would anyone risk damage to something that serves no purpose?

Just a thought, but it does look bad ***. Your rear bumper tire carrier is great looking and seems really functional.

My answer to that logical question is, I am a teenager... when have we ever been logical? haha I will brace it in other ways. It is not even a for sure element yet

There's been a slight change in design as it was much too wide for my liking and I had to make swingways for the shackles. I think they actually add something to the design.

LOL sounds reasonable to me

Good deal, wish I had your skills. Good luck with it.

I got a couple more pieces of the plate cut and tacked for the center section today. I cut a little more and I think I figured out the design thats going to work for the shackles. It actually adds a bit to the look of the design IMO. I got the ends to look right shortened as well... I might have to delete the big lights in the ends but I will keep small ones somewhere. Now just tell me that auxiliary view doesn't look mean as hell haha Shackles won't be in that awkward spot that was just bad modelling haha
