Who want to make a PRETTY PENNY?

Well guys, theres now more than a few of us who are looking for an alternative to PSC's expensive/very large rear stinger. Sadddlllyyy, none of us can find IT...because it doesnt exist.....yet.

To all you tube bending/welding heads, im pretty damn sure the money would be worth the time and effort to make a few of these and sell on the forums. All we(the buyers) would have to do is take it to a local welding shop and have them weld the base hynges to the rear frame crossmember.I dont know if i speak for all of us, but i would like one shorter than the PSC...maye ends at the top of the spare tire? It shouldnt be difficult, especially for what you can charge. Who wants one? Who will build? Am i crazy?

Are you talking about a rear stinger that will hold a spare tire?

Buy a tube bender and welder. Or make friends with someones who has one. Or post in the fab section where you will find more people who have them. I do like them though and would like to make one when I can afford the tools. If you got to take it somewhere to weld it for you might as well have them bend the tube.

What will you do when you go bigger?? build another one? Why not make it to acomodate a 36 and up? a 33 would fit fine on Jr's (doghouse)

Because you can make a cage, bumpers, shock hoops, tube fenders front and rear, transmission cross memebers, skids, racks, motor mounts, full suspensions, part of suspensions, new axle brackets, exo cages, buggys.... well maybe you need a little more than just a bender and welder but you get the point plus then make all those for your friends, and you still have the tools to fix repair or replace the parts when you break them.
