Groundpounder Fab. I love the thing. Well worth the (very low) price.

Thanks man, if I remember correctly it was $220 to my door. It was the cheapest and best bumper I could find.

Here's another Groundpounder Fab. Awsome quality and price. Eddie is very easy to work with and can make almost anything you want.

If your looking for ideas, use the search button. 5 pages of topics that have pictures of stingers.

Not one single stinger bumper on this page would do anything except fold up in event of an end-over. :ghey:

What are you basing that off of? some of them may not be the strongest in the world, but they seem like they'd hold their own in an incident.

Each one posted so far is simply a bent piece tubing welded at the bumper. Stingers are meant for protection in an end over end roll so that you hit the stinger and it pushes your jeep to the side rather than landing right on your lid. All of the ones on this page would simply buckle if that happened. All show and no go they are.

Did a search in the pic request thread and found this one which is properly braced and could actually help in the event of an endover.

I'm no engineer but I did stay at a holiday inn last night. That groundpounder seems like it would hold up to a good amount of pressure due to the gusseting.
