I'll get ya some tomorrow... I tried to take some for Jager00, but my phone was acting out, as usual. It looks VERY good from the side. It doesn't come forward that much - but comes forward enough to be parallel to the rest of the armor in the front. I like this approach much better.

Lots of plans but no time. lol.
That setup looks pretty good, yeah I like that. Whose WK is that? - I would probably make mine a little thicker too if I had that set up, but I think the 4xG provides really good foundational support for these things. We know that 4xG ain't gonna budge, so a 'stinger' on this setup ain't a bad idea.

I believe it belongs to "DGoral31" on JG. And yeah, thicker. It looks like that one is only .5" tube. I was thinking 1" heavy wall pipe for the horizontal part infront of the bumper, then .75" for the hoop, but a little more triangular with only 2 lights on top, then two fogs on the bottom hoop. I have a few different drawings I'm working on. ( And then the chrome will be no longer)

Yep that is his username. He lives in LA which is where he had it made. The guy will make more if anyone is interested, but I think he wants something like $500 for it.

Please, I insist - Maybe we can call it - AJ's Stinger Mod, lmao - I'm kidding, i'm not that self-centered, lmao. But, 'steal' away, lol. I had no idea there were this many WK's looking for creative things to and venture out from the typical grill guard set-up - so I'm actually really interested to see what you guys come up with as well.

This one made by warrior is made out 1.5" tubing. I don't like big lights blocking the air intake and grill. So the only extra lighting I get will probably be going to the cargo rack. Not to mention I think I have plenty of light now, lol. I'll get a set for the sides. But aside from the headlights, I have 2 additional sets in the front, not including fogs. But I do like DGoral31's idea there...

I am planning a write up soon, probably toward the end of the week. I'll be putting on a Rear Guard II also. It arrived today.

Looking forward to your write up! Skids and rails are def on my wish list. Did you have any hangups with 4xG? Been reading a thread on JG that puts 4xG in a bad light. I think things have calmed down and been resolved but it still makes me leary.

Not sure if it's considered cheap but I'd assume you could find it here.

Installed my replacement mirror (yesterday) Works/looks just like oem, but 100 dollars cheaper! Oem - 150, Koolvue mirror - 56 bucks. The only complain I have is no directions came with it, but who can't figure out how to install a mirror?
