After some long debated discussions around a campfire
What is the benefit of a stinger front bumper:

here are the results of the conversation
- protect front end
- allow for approach angle check
- help prevent continued roll after rollover
- best seat in the house for wheeling.

Thoughts please:

(Also - I tried to search but the search no worky)

So you don't lose your radiator in the event of a rollover?? Can hopefully flip back over and at least drive it back to the trailer?? Just guessing.

I am not sure. The stinger on the scrambler has been cut off as it looked sto0pid and will not be needed parked in the driveway.

to make you feel like you have a wheeling rig when you only just cruise the pavement?

stingers help kick the rig to the side to prevent the hard hit of rolling backwards/forwards onto the roof. I use mine so I know exactly where the front of my truck is, I can just barely see it from the drivers seat.

99% of stingers are useless.

in order to protect you from endoing it would have to be 4 feet tall and huge.
