all the custom bumpers i've seen online have a larger hoop or "stinger" type hoop. why is this? what is the purpose of it? are you able to mount anything to it?
i'm sure other questions will pop up but this is to get the discussion stared.
I believe the real purpose of a stinger is to protect the engine compartment in a rollover. That is why the stinger hoop is generally slightly taller than the hood. Someone correct me if I am wrong though.
Prevent a vehichle from going end over end, and also in a rollover, can protect that radiator/front end.
The stinger is there for the NEXT time the guy rolls it 3 times..Instead of the front end rolling on the hood and smashing in the radiator and fan...the front end will roll on the stinger, making the vehichle capable of driving off the trail to see another day
