I have all of the light mounts, the stinger, and the braces done, so all thats left is to clean it up and prep and paint it, I will post more pictures in the next couple of days. It is definitely way over the top and unnecessary, but thats how I do everything

I got all of the bits on it, and today i ended up cleaning all of the rust and welding slag off of everything inside and out. I primed and painted the inside, then I primed the outside. I have it on now and I will paint it tomorrow. I am EXTREMELY happy with the way it came out. I am not a professional but I have never seen anything like it. I think it is on the same or higher level as the back bumper, so I am totally pleased. It looks perfectly balanced to me and is exactly what I was envisioning. Let me know what you guys think!

I for one I am psyched to have it done....

I will have more and better pictures tomorrow as well...,

Here we go, it has come together at last. I have it permanently mounted now and it is rock solid. I love the look it gives to the front end of the Jeep, I think it looks balanced now. I used hammered black on the bumper and that paint is awesome. The lights still need to be adjusted but they are all wired up with aircraft switches and the harness fairly clean looking. I just need to mount the winch and wire that up somehow. I will probably get a second battery for it pretty soon.

Damn. That thing is sick. I love the stinger too. Very much my style. I may have to borrow some of that styling.

Nice job, that thing is beefy!
What size are your lights? and where did you source them?
Those oval lights give it a cool look

The round ones are 3 and a half inches and I ordered them through autozone. I put them there mostly for looks but they give some close range light...

Wow I wasn't on board until I saw it painted. Sold. That thing is sweet!!! I wish you had built this last summer when I was in New Mexico. I would have had you make a second.
