Guess the safety budget is pretty low then? Stingers aren't for looks. I saw that he said he's going to brace it, though.


What's up with your negative iTrader rating, man?

I disagree... I bet 98% of rigs with stingers will never use them.

I won't argue you there :tonka: but if and when, plus it looks cool, I made it, and cost me zero dollars.

Didn't mean it in a negative way. I like your rig, I'm all about the cheap way. They are meant to work and be beat, not to be pretty.

Well, you saw my Toyota in canada, so you know my philosophy..

No offense taken. I like to make my own stuff, A) because I can, and B) because I am poor and would have to save forever if I were to buy it at a shop. With a little more attention to detail, all the stuff I made would look good, just grinding welds and such.
