1. Stinger (1)


1. If installing as part of a new installation, place center section of bumper onto frame rails, but do not yet attach. If stinger is being added to an existing installation, remove existing Hoop and D-Rings from center section. Center section should be sitting on the frame rails, but not attached (Figure 1a). Place Stinger over center section (Figure 1b) and align 8 holes on top and 8 holes on front (Figure 1c).


2. Install 8 top bolts (provided with center section) through the stinger and into the center section (Figure 2a). Do not tighten bolts yet. Install 8 front bolts (provided with center section) through the stinger and into the center section (Figure 2b).


3. Once all 16 bolts have been started, tighten the front 8 bolts, followed by the 8 top bolts. Installation is now complete! Note: When used for vehicle recovery, only the D-Ring mounts at the base of the Stinger are to be used. Stinger bar is not to be used for towing or vehicle recovery.
