Anybody have one? I think I'm going to do that and cut the bumper as well. Lets see some pics!

Olympic Stinger

(Here is my write-up on another website, www.**************, Check it out!!!)

It's uses six bolts to attach. The four on top of the bumper, where the recovery points are and two on the bottom of the bumper.

They're are three different ways to attach this particular Stinger:

1.- Remove the factory bumper completely and attach dirrectly to the frame(to me, this is the most rugged looking way).

2.-Attach on top of the factory bumper(this is the way I'm attaching it).

3.-Attach on top of the Olympic Rock Front Bumper(There are two different bumpers; One with a Reciever Hitch, one without as well as 50" and 57" wide. Also, they're are three different powder coated finishes; Gloss Black, Rubicon Black, Rubicon Silver).

Other questions and answers I can think of of the top of my head: Yes, you must remove the plastic sway bar cover. Yes, you can use a winch plate with this Stinger. No, there is no drilling, cutting, etc.

The main reason I chose this Stinger is because it's a simple design(i.e.- there isn't a brushguard attached, it's not connected to flat fender flares, etc.). Also, it isn't so small it's not notieable/effective. And, as I'm sure it will hold up, I don't ever want to test it's true capability Haha.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this.

Ok, so here goes...

This was packaged incredibly so. However, there was still a nic or two here and there, I just touched them up. I removed the bumper entirely to allow room to remove the bump stops. While doing that I slipped on the stinger just to see what it'd look like without the factory bumper, and it looked nice for those of you wondering. When I put the factory bumper back on, and then the stinger over it, it didn't fit. it was CLOSE, but didn't fit. So I got a rubber mallet to beat it on slightly, and a crobar to pry down the bottom a small bit, and then it slid right on. So, all in all I like this product. Seems sturdy, and only a small bit of finaglin' to get it on.

I also went and purchased two Reese 10k Tow Hooks just in case. And while the factory bolts were long enough for the stinger, they were not long enough for the stinger and the tow hooks.



The "WRANGLER" on the driver-side hood will be removed shortly.




While sitting inside the Jeep, It makes it look alot longer! I feel like I have to give extra room where I turn now! Haha.


The crap on the top of the windshield is where I removed that ugly SEOR sticker. I used acetone on the Jeep body while removing stickers, will this work on the windshield too?




*Note: Sorry I didn't capture the true color of the Jeep today.

Oh, and you can purchase this Stinger through Quadratec, or directly off the Olympic website.
