What is the price?? That brand is sold on Ebay for cheap. They are basically a knock off Westin Bull Bar from what I understand. Honestly I dont like the look of the skid plate on them, the westin one looks better IMO. I have not seen one in person but you prob get what you pay for.

Don't get it. They reduce your front end clearance when going through ditches, and EVERYBODY AND THEIR DAMN UNCLE has a bull bar on their truck.

I'm not sure where you got your price, but, when i checked into them on JCWhitney, the bull bar was more expensive than a full brush guard.
I'm not sure how it would look some of them i like, some i don't, just depends. Your truck, your call.

Get a cattle guard. If you hit something it actually guards the truck and looks awesome.

Bull bars are crap. Don't just buy it because you can afford it.

I like the way the front end of your truck looks now with the lights. I think it will look too "busy" with the bull bar
