    After a couple weeks of work, it's done. Now I just need to make me a front bumper and my stinger for the removable winch. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    You do real nice work. Always enjoy seeing the pics of the bumpers and other stuff you build.

    keep the short wheelbase stuff from rolling forward.

    or out east guys (read BOSS) use them to glance of trees when their hydro fails /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    My stingers are designed to protect the radiator in a roll over... However, most stingers are made to just look cool and maybe hold some lights. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I re-read my post. The stinger I am talking about is for the receiver mounted winch. Not the stinger (brush guard type) mounted on the front bumper.

    Very nice work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Do you use a program to get the bends right, or have you been using a tube bender for a long time to beable to do that? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, there is a tube that runs from the side bar back to the bumper mounting plate.

    No program is used. Although I hear Bend-Tech is good. I mainly use an angle finder and a measuring tape.
