stinger/rad hoop

I just got my winch mounted and need to add some protection. i'm thinkin of putting a stinger and a radiator hoop on the front and welding a piece of tube between them. would this be strong enough or should i run a piece of tube back to the cage?

oh yeah, it's going on a cj-7 and any pictures of this set-up would be appreciated.

I am a little confused. You want to put a stinger and rad hoop? Most people have one or the other.

I would tie the stinger or rad hoop back if you can. Here is my setup so far. I still have a lot of work to do.

Here's what i built for mine, People have said that it won't hold up if I nose it up a tree, but why would I nose it up tree. I drive better than that.
Anyway, a lot of failures would need to happen at once for it to go anywhere. Hope it helps



and the painted & finished product
