Got it installed this weekend...mostly. Still need to drill the 6 holes for the top plate, wire up the winch and rotate my swaybar motor out of the way.

I think it turned out pretty sweet!

Nice!! I have the same set up on my white Jku. Is that the CTI-S warn? Does yours set pressing into the grill? Mine is like super tight!! I'd have to take the bumper off to get behind my grill

Looks good! The EVO stinger is the best looking stinger on the market! :yup:

I wrote it in the other forum, but that looks great! For as minimal of a bumper as the 1/4 pounder is, that thing sure as hell is beefy :rock:

Thanks. Yeah, it is the CTI-S and it is tight in there! Not looking forward to ever removing that bumper. :grayno:

Agreed. I was surprised how heavy it was. And I felt every pound of it as I put it on myself. Had to come up with a way to keep the spacer plates from slipping while I positioned the stinger and feed the bolts through the holes. Fun stuff! :crazyeyes:

That's the set up I'm trying to talk my wife into letting me get. It looks nice.

Probably the only winch that wouldn't have tight clearance would be the tiny Warn RC winch designed for the rock racing guys. My Warn PowerPlant winch actually had the angle grinder liberally applied to its frontside to slim it down enough to allow the winch mounting bolts to line up.

I read your other write up, Your 100% correct. There is'nt a stubby bumper on the market that isnt a pain in the ass to install. I cut off a wrench to make it a little easier to install.

Or I just ask my wife to turn wrenches:yup: She has small hands

Thanks everyone. It's getting there. Walking out of the office tonight and saw the front rake is back.

I think when I install the LOD rear bumper it will probably sit level again. Thoughts?

In case those that were in Moab were wondering why I was measuring your stingers...

This is how much room I have between the stinger and the garage fridge. I knew it was going to be close!

I've seen MTG drive. Should we start a pool to see how long it takes for him to nail the refrigerator?

Yep, it'll level out with a rear bumper

I'd probably put the over/under on it happening sometime this week.

The bumper comes powder coated black, its the purchase of one of their fairleads that gives you an option; Polished Aluminum or Black Powder Coated Steel

Love that bumper. Gonna pick it up when I'm down there over thanksgiving. Paying the taxes are cheaper than paying for shipping :bleh: Not sure I'm gonna be able to wait that long though.

Looks amazing! That will definitely replace my bumper when I'm ready to switch out. I don't even want to think about how much it'll cost with the shipping.. >.<

Did you get bolts for the top plates for the stinger when you got the bumper?

They should have come with the stinger. The 4 back ones are easy. The front ones are a pain in the rear.

Wonder if I could ask a quick question - feel free to point me in the right direction if it's been answered already...

Assuming the 'T' slots are for using a highlift jack...where would you 'attach' the jack to; seeing as the stinger would now be in the way...or have I missed the point altogether?:idontknow:

Thanks in advance:)

What would anyones thoughts be on cutting out the "T's" and making room to install some Rigid Duallys??

Has this been done?

Is there room?

I am currently not near my jeep to take a look, so I can't say for certain if it will work, but there are gussets behind the outer skin of the bumper that support the winch. The design of the bumper is so minimalist that there probably isn't any room left to cut into and place the D2's. Maybe ChrisB will chime in or someone else running the 1/4pounder that can take a look.
