Jeep XJ Winch Stinger Bumper – Evolution Stinger

All XJ Winch Bumpers or for that mater all Ares Fabrication products undergo a meticulous manufacturing process. These XJ winch bumpers are laser cut and pickled in oil, cold rolled 3/16″ steel. Then we CNC press brake it into shape, ensuring you an exact fit. Comes with a frame tie-in kit. No winch bumper would be complete without the d-ring mount. Made from solid billet steel 1 inch thick and welded on both sides of the bumper. Comes with the “stinger” style tubing shown. We only use DOM tubing. Tubing is 1.75″. Comes in bare steel so it’s ready to prep and paint.



All of our bumpers start off as a piece of 3/16″ cold rolled steel, pickled in  oil plate. These are then laser cut on a CNC Laser cutting machine. Why laser instead of plasma? Fit and finish! Laser cutting is a far superior machine for cutting bumpers. Cut quality is second to none.

After the laser, we press form all the facets with a CNC 300 ton press.  Next it is sent over to our welding department where one of our AWS certified welders MIG weld these in a precision made jig. This insures that our first and last bumper come out the exact same.

From there the bumper goes to our grinding department. This is a dirty job. Our grinders put great care into each and every part we manufacture.

Then back to the welding department to weld in D-ring mounts. Our D-ring mounts are CNC machined from billet cold rolled steel on a 3+2 axis HAAS milling center. Then back to the grinding department for one last sanding.

Now for our tubing. We only use high quality domestic DOM ( Drawn Over Mandrel) 1.75″x.125″. We would never even think of using HREW (Hot Rolled Electric Welded). Why? Simply strength. DOM is far stronger then HREW. Isn’t that what we are looking for?Strength. HREW Has a tendency to dent and twist up. Nobody wants that.

This is when we perform a final inspection. Once it passes, our shipping department places all of the associated parts and hardware in boxes to ship out.
