    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger Bumper, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. This bumper's for those of you who are looking for a simple, stubby bumper with a stinger, and something that adds recovery points to the front of the Jeep, which are definitely nice to have when you're off-road. Another nice thing about this bumper in particular, is that it's fairly inexpensive for what you get. A lot of people like the stinger look because they think it makes their Jeep look more like a trail or an off-road Jeep, or just adds a level of toughness. And if you're one of those people, that's okay, and this might be a really good bumper for you. What some people don't know, is that a stinger actually had a purpose, at least in the beginning. The point of a stinger was that when you're doing hardcore off-roading, and you're coming down off an obstacle forward, if the vehicle starts to roll forward, the stinger would hit the ground first and then kick the vehicle to the left or to the right, landing it back on its wheels instead of completely flipping over. Other stingers were built high enough that if you did roll the vehicle over, it wouldn't cause damage to the radiator and the core support, so the stinger was designed to take that sort of abuse. Now, while this bumper is really well built, and the stinger does have some gussets on it, in my opinion this is not going to hold up to that type of abuse. So this stinger is going to be more about the look than it is about the function. Speaking of how well-built the bumper is, it's made of three-sixteenths inch steel and two inch outer diameter DOM tubing, so the materials are there for the strength, it just seems that the gusseting wouldn't hold up to actual use on the trail. The whole bumper is covered in a textured black powder coat that looks good, and will help to resist both rust and corrosion down the line, and one of the features that I really like about this bumper is that it has D-ring mounts. Now you can get tow hooks to add to your TJ or your YJ, but I always prefer to have the D-ring especially if you're doing a recovery with a snatch strap or with a winch, because the D-ring makes sure that that connection is going to stay connected, and there's no chance of your winch line or your strap coming off the hook. Getting a new bumper installed on a TJ or a YJ is a pretty simple process. All you need to do is to remove the bolts that are holding your factory bumper on, remove the factory bumper, and then re-install the new bumper with the hardware that comes with it. Now, even though this is a stubby bumper, there's a good piece of mass here, so it will help to have an extra set of hands around. If you don't, you can use some tall jack stands or an engine hoist to help you get this installed. The whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools, however if you have an impact gun it'll definitely speed things along. Smittybilt is known for making products that fit into a slightly lower budget. That being said, I think this bumper is really well built. The welds look nice, the powder coat finish is really solid, and overall it looks like a pretty solid bumper, especially for the cost. However, if you do wanna use this bumper for it's intended purpose of being a stinger in an off-road situation, I would recommend adding some additional gussets to this bumper, or possibly looking at one of the more expensive stinger bumper options on the market. So, if you're looking to add a simple stumpy bumper with a stinger and recovery points onto your TJ or YJ, I would recommend taking a look at this bumper as long as you don't plan on using this stinger for its intended purpose of roll-over protection. So that's my review of the Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger Bumper fitting all the 1987 to 2006 Wranglers, where you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Does the stinger function like a stinger is supposed to or is it for looks?

    What is the best way to mount my license plate once I install it?

    Nik

    • Smittybilt currently does not offer a front license plate mount for the Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger Bumper. There are options to install a license plate on the front of a winch, if you plan to install a winch with this bumper or you could drill into the bumper to mount a license plate.

    Do you sell the wench plate for this bunper?

    EricA

    • Yes, the Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger Bumper is designed to accept most winch plates. I would recommend pairing this with another Smittybilt product for best fitment and results. I would recommend the Smittybilt Raised Winch Plate; Item #J16147, which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/smittybilt-winch-plate-tj-2802.html.

      Amazing.

      I bought this product for the looks and i love it. I've used it fro offroading situations (being pulled out and pulling others out) and it works great. I also got into an accident with this on and it saved my jeep from any damage whatsoever. It totalled the other persons car but saved my jeep. Definitely shows the ruggedness and stability. Great product.

      Solid bumper.

      This bumper was a good purchase. Well built and looks great. Four stars because going down the road between 40 and 50mph it makes a whistle. Not a huge deal. We will see how the coating holds up. Overall with the money.

      worth it for the work

      I put it on my 92 YJ, but had to do some light modifications. I had to grind the frame in the front on the top and bottom parts to get the bumper to slide over to where the bolts could reach the holes. Ended up only getting the top two and having to weld in on the bottom. Would recommend for the looks and price however
