Default Light bar input?

I just got done putting a 3" bl and 33x12.50 on my 07 FX4 and am looking to put on a light bar but not sure on the style. I want it to mount to the bedrails, and have a few ideas. Input?
This is how my truck looks now:



These are the ones I am thinking about, but other suggestions are appreciated. I am going to do black.


or this one with just one hoop and without the horizontal bars...


Thoughts?

The rounded one in the first pic would look better with your truck IMHO. The secound one would look better on an older boxier ranger or F150.

Little things that I have replaced include all the mirrors, spark plugs, in dash radio, headlights, air filter and brakes. Would like to start modding her and adding some performance parts

I think I have made up my mind that the roll bar style is a little more than I want. I am now thinking about a headache rack type thing incorporating some bed rails. I am now looking at something like this minus the louvers. I want to link the bedrails to a hoop. Just unsure of a pipe size.

I like the top one better but why not do a true roll bar? I don't like the look mounted to the bed rails....

Buy my T-Rac G2 for $400 and you can get 2 light bars! I'm in Rutland-I could meet you half-way.
