alright thanks for all the input, and yea the ends will eb wrapped around the side, ends will be capped, and stinger will be supported, this is like a very rough idea, not even good enough to leave on my turck, i kinda just wanted to see how all the bends looked and what not...the original idea was to actully have there be no place for a winch and have the stinger really close to the body but the bender got the best of me and wanted to se what it would look like, let me come up with a few other designs and what not and then ill see if its worth selling, i think next week ill build one without a place for a winch and have it tucked real close to the body after i finish this one, i mean it really only costs like 100 bucks and some time to make these so i will be trying a few differnt designs out....

I would be interested in one with a standard top tube, I'm not fond of stingers. Plus I am close too.

alright guys heres the deal, sorry i havent kept up with this post, i brought the stinger closer to the body so its got a better aproach angle and fully boxed the mounts, im workin on the winch plate, my sas has been taking up most of my time, but dony worry guys im still working on these and if and when the time comes to start selling these i will be using higher quality tubing
(.134 wall dom tubing instead of the .120 wall im using now) i also got a freind to let me borrow his 2nd gen if i build him one at cost, so ill be progressing with this in about 2 weeks when my swap is done!!
