Question Front bumper or Brush gaurd?

Well over the past few days I've really gotten into the repair/mod of my truck. Now it is a 97 2WD Blue stepside. now i want your opinions/help.

Front bumper:
Full steel plated one
or
Brush guard

Tires:
p245s
or
Save for a lift and 30's
(tires now are 215 =/)

Tool box:
Where to buy one?

Intake:
Stock?
Snorkel?
Cold air?
(2.3l)

the tool box is gonna run you some cash.. go to your local TSC and see what kind of deal they can make you. After you talk to TSC, PM azgilamonster and ask the details about the box he just got. He just bought a UWS (good boxes) offline. for pretty cheap if i remember right.

Do you know what kind of bumper your going to get? Will you buy it or fab it yourself? Im looking into getting a steel front bumper but have only found one brand that makes them for rangers...

A guy I work with has one with a winch slit and all. He took it off and it lines up with everything but the mounts for it are off. So I am thinking of just fabing it myself
