Default Light Bar/ Brush Guard Feeler - Opinions?

Im a trying to achieve a really clean, but "capable", look for my truck. It will sit with a 3 inch front lift on 31s with mild suspension work. I want to keep my stock bumper instead of go full tube because I think it is much cleaner. However, I am going to build a skid plate very similar to that of the RangeRunner project. I also want a front light bar similar to the RR, but I am thinking about running it THROUGH the valence and either welding it on or make it bolt on some how.. Here are some photoshopped pics on some random trucks. I also included pictures of the RR project.

What do you think??

The last three are the actuall truck I got the idea from. The first to are just photoshoped to get an idea of what it will look like going thru the valence, because thats what I am looking to do.

Thanks! I think it will look good if I get some fog lights and tow hooks in the middle. I may still mount two HID lights in my grill, behind my grille, or maybe on the bar.

i think just a pair either on the bar or behind the grille would keep it clean. too many and youll start make the front end look too "busy"
