I actually stumbled across this thread after visiting the Poison Spyder website. The site says that this product will not fit out of the box if you have a BL, and you have to weld some pieces together yourself. I've never welded a day in my life, is there anyway I could order a stinger/bumper custom for my respective Body Lifted LJ? After all, the name of the company is Poison Spyder Customs... I'll be your facebook friend if you hook me up...

I am in the exact same position. I want to buy it, put it on and go wheel. I have No desire or time to do any fab work. Id rather spend that time riding.

The Rear Stinger attaches to points on both the frame and the body, which of course get farther apart when you add a body lift. The standard build is for Jeeps with no body lift. If you have a body lift there are several options.

First, we could leave the "arms" unwelded so you can weld them on yourself, once you've fit everything up on your Jeep with whatever amount of body lift you have.

Second option is that you could install the non-body-lift version, and simply move the tub-brackets downward however far they need to go to compensate for your body lift. You'd have to drill new holes through the Crusher Corners and the tub (on non-body-lifted Jeeps they use the same bolt holes from the Crusher Corner install). If you have a 1" body lift, you would move them down 1", for example.

Note that the old Poison Spyder shipped ALL of their Rear Stingers un-welded, for this very reason. But we have fixtured up for the non-body-lift and offer them fully welded like that, because that is the most common configuration and we haven't seen the demand yet to justify building fixtures for several different body lift combinations.

If I were to get it non welded, would a 1.25'' BL throw off the angles enough for it to no longer fit a 42'' tire if I were to try to mount it at the locations it was designed to be installed at? Also, I've read it fits a 40'' tire, what about a 42''? Just making sure before i order. thanks

This is definitely the best looking stinger tire carrier out there. I do have a 1" daystar body lift, however. But right now I just have a bare tub, no corner guards or anything. So, I could just mount the upper mounts about an inch lower? It would not interfere with anything on the tub?

Was the only issue the holes would no longer match up with your corner guards?

Thanks for the clarification.

PS: What are these things shipping for? More then $100? Just wondering the average.

Brad, it shouldn't throw the angles off very much at all, just by moving the corner brackets up 1-1/4" higher. I don't have a protractor handy but my guess is the change in angle of the tire carrier would be so small you wouldn't be able to see it. We have not placed a 42" tire into it, 40" is the biggest we've had on hand here at the shop. However there is nothing in the way of putting in a tire that is 2" taller. In fact the 3-way tire strap we use allows for just that sort of adjustability. I think you'll be OK.

Yes, simply mounting the corner brackets 1" lower is one of your options, if you want to receive the carrier fully welded from us. They ship truck freight on a pallet. Not because of the weight but because the overall dimensions are too big for UPS. If you send us a zip code we can get you a shipping quote. Its impossible to quote a ballpark figure without knowing the destination. Thanks,

Just after making the last two posts I spoke with our R&D guy, who said we will be offering a few different lower plates soon, to accomodate different body lifts. We'd be interested in hearing everyone's input on what the most popular body lift heights are. I don't have an ETA for this yet but I'll post more when I know more.

I have a 2" body lift but 1" and 1.25" are by far the most common. I'm thinking about taking 1" out of mine anyway as soon as I can afford a good suspension kit,so a 1" body lift option on the carrier would be really nice.

I have a M.O.R.E. 1" BL this is basically the only thing holding me back from getting one.

By FAR the most popular BL is the 1.25".

I think it's wonderful the manufacturer is listening to input from consumers.

can you fit a hitch on your rig if you have this bumper?

PLEASE DO! I'd like to see how you hooked the hitch up.
