Poison Spyder Customs Front Stingers are not the same look-alike rectangular Jeep bumper. The stinger is a sturdy and functional bumper built for today's extreme trails. Stingers assist in minimizing damage during a rollover by helping to protect hood line, radiator, and engine. Additionally preventing potential end-overs when heading down steep terrain. The Stinger also protects the grill and winch with no loss in approach angle typical of bulky square bumpers.
Poison Spyder Front Stingers come in two types: Trail and Competition. Both types are built on a base plate laser cut from 3/16 inch plate steel, with a Stinger hoop made of CNC-bent 1-3/4 inch X .120 wall DOM structural tubing. The Trail Stinger's main hoop stands 27 inch from its base at a 47° angle. The Competition Stinger's main hoop stands 36 inch from its base at a 45° angle.
Stingers do NOT include winch mounting provisions. Stingers will work with any manufacture's winch mount plate. OE tow hooks will work in conjunction with Poison Spyder's Trail Stinger; If a stronger recovery point is desired check out Poison Spyder's D-Ring Shackle Tabs. Relocation of any bumper-mounted auxiliary lights is required. Poison Spyder offers a Fairlead Light Mount to relocate auxiliary lights to the top of the roller or hawse winch fairlead.
Trail and Comp Stingers are designed to bolt directly onto an OE frame using OE mounting hardware. Comp stingers may be reinforced with horizontal support tubes as shown in the photo at left, however these are not included in the kit. Stingers are shipped bare steel.
would I be ok with this bumper and adding a winch plate or getting the bfh bumper?
Asked by jeremy from muscle shoals,AL on
Hey Jeremy, you will be fine doing this bumper with a plate no problem. Thanks for your question.

does this stinger without the bumper just bolt on to the existing bumper?
Asked by christj99 from Camarillo,CA on
Hey Christj99, this installs with the stock bumper removed. This stinger bolts onto the frame rails and acts as a bumper. I hope this answer helps and earns your business. Thanks for your question.

If I mount this on the front end of a 1997 wrangler (TJ), would I be able to mount a winch as well? If so what would I need to make that happen?
Asked by Michael from Naperville on
Hi Michael! Yes, you will be able to still mount a winch to your TJ Wrangler even with this Poison Spyder stinger! You'll just need a winch mount plate and you should be good to go! Check out the TJ Wrangler winch plates here : http://jo.my/tj_winch_plates I'd recommend one with an integrated fairlead mount!
