Yeah!


Looks awesome! I just wanted to see how "squared up" it was with the Ranger's body lines.

Looks really, really good. Nicely done.

Thanks, yeah I think it turned out pretty well. I think tomorrow I'm gonna try to notch and mount the light bar

Thanks! I made the steel tube out of 3/8 steel plate I had laying around and then welded that to the frame on each side. The bumper bolts straight to those mounts. I'm going to run some gussets to the cross member for more reinforcement. The steel tube I made is welded all the way around where it mounts to the frame. I'll try and get some pics up tomorrow.

Put the light bar from trail gear on yesterday. It was the first time I've had to notch tube and it turned out better than I thought it would.

Thanks. Yeah I didn't want a stinger hoop that I could see while driving so that's why I went with a bar that has a flat top.

Do you guys think I should add some side supports to the stinger? Maybe like 1" OD DOM tube?

I think it looks fine the way it is. I would add light pods or a winch to fill the gap in the middle but i like how low profile the sides are.

It's got led pod lights now but I'm thinking about replacing them with an 18" curved led bar. Still no winch though haha. A winch will hopefully come soonish.

Thanks man. I'm really tempted to buy a tube-notcher. The grinder works well but it's a pain haha.

Got the tube notched and welded. I need to move my LED pods in a bit so they aren't blocked by the stinger but other than that, it's all done.
