Here are some pre-production photos of the Trail Stinger option we will be making available for the Brawler Lite. Like the Brawler Bar we currently offer, the Trail Stinger will come with plate steel gussets (the ones shown in the photo are temporary, we're doing some small revisions to it for the Trail Stinger). We may also offer a tube gusset option, like we do with the Brawler Bar, if there is sufficient interest. These should be in production in a few weeks but we've been getting a few inquiries about it so we thought we'd post up a couple of photos.
This has been a popular request, and we're glad to finally release it. Like the Brawler Bar, the Trail Stinger is made out of CNC laser notched, NC-bent 1.75" OD .120 wall DOM tubing. We considered a couple of different plate gusset designs but in the end decided it looked best--and would be strongest--with some DOM tube gussets instead (there is no plate gusset option offered). Pricing is the same as the Brawler Lite with Brawler Bar. See our website or your favorite Poison Spyder dealer to order yours!
We knew you would want to see it mounted on a Jeep before pulling the trigger on one, so we temporarily installed it on one of the project Jeeps we currently have in the shop. We'll post up some shots of powder coated, finish-installed-with-winch as soon as we can. In the meantime...
and from the driver's seat...
Thanks for looking, and for those of you who have been waiting for these, thanks for your patience
For those purchasing a Brawler Lite and wanting to run a pair of Rigid Industries Duallys or Dually D2's in the fog lamp buckets instead of the factory fog lamps, we're now offering the Rigid/BDF mounting kit designed for this purpose.
BTW these also work in the stock bumper or just about any aftermarket bumper that is designed to accept the factory fog lamps. Thanks!
Im not running a winch yet, in the mean time I would like to fill the gap with some K/C 8" lights. Can anyone recommend a light mount? Maybe something similar to the RIPP Superchargers photo. Thanks!
My guess is those are just bolted right in to the existing winch mounting holes. Most lights come with a stud mount, all you need is a hole to put them on. If the winch mount holes aren't where you want them you could drill new ones.
Here's a nice illustration of why we would rather just cut the "crash bar" off and run the Brawler Lite without the lower skid. On this obstacle the skid would have cased before Timmay's tires were able to grab.
Of course, he's running the Currie Anti-Rock swaybar, which tucks up better than the stock sway bar and sway bar disconnect unit on the Rubicons. If you're still running the stock Rubicon sway bar setup, of course the lower skid pretty important for protecting the expensive electronic disconnect unit.
Here's a closer look at the Brawler Lite lower skid:
