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.
"I have bought a few things from Poison Spyder and I am stoked that I did. I was coming down a snow covered logging road and I was trying to straddle the ruts when my driver's side front tire dropped in. Before I knew it my ass was in the air and I was goin over. I had installed your Comp Stinger on the front a couple of weeks before and it did its job—it stopped me from going over and saved my ass! My YJ and I thank you for bringing the Spyder back to life. I can't wait to do business with you guys again."
Poison Spyder Front Stingers come in two types: Trail and Competition. Both types are built on a base plate laser cut from 3/16" plate steel, with a Stinger hoop made of CNC-bent 1-3/4" X .120 wall DOM structural tubing. The Trail Stinger's main hoop stands 27" from its base at a 47° angle. The Competition Stinger's main hoop stands 36" 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.
