my first stinger bumper build




My roommate and I built this bumper with the help of Paul at CSU-P for the notching and letting us use his welder. The tubing is 1.75"x.120 and the mounting brackets are 1/4". We were limited on what we could do at the college, but this is the final result so tell me what you think!

looks good! I would recommend a lot more support/protection in the radiator area. ive seen rocks come through a gap that big and make someones day worse.

I think you did a great job as a 1st time bumper build. Would like to see the side view too.

Looks great.

You might want to think about a support running down from the outside wing to the frame mount tho... I'm not sure the support running to the front hoop will support that bumper if you get that wing into a rock.

Loving the profile tho!

I'm outside your window watching you read this.

I like it a lot. Simple and clean. If you make the adjustments like people were listing above i think it will be about perfect.

No plans for a winch? I was looking at it and you can mount a winch plate where the plate is and it should cover the radiator pretty well. It might be a bit low tho....hmmmm just throwing ideas out.

I just saw you and your truck over by Parkview on 15th St. I work at Parkview and was walking back to my office from lunch. Bumper looked good! Truck looks nice as well. You were parked behind a red Ford Powerstroke dually on 15th. I was trying to walk down the hill to catch ya but you took off

Damn my bad, I was at jury duty and leaving my inner tie rod broke, so you just caught me after I got the new one in, sorry about that, definitely have to meet up and go wheel some time!

i take back my previous statements about radiator protection. the angle on the first pic made it so i didnt notice the plate you had in there since it was a head on view! looks good. clean and tucked up out of the way. i like it!
