Default Custom Bumper vs. Brush Guard

What's the general consensus here, I got a got who could weld up a custom bumper with the light/grille guard bars on it for relatively cheap but should I pay more for that or go cheaper and keep the stock bumper (minus the valence) and buy a brush guard?

I'm thinking something like this http://www.tacticalarmorgroup.com/Po...incher-023.jpg

vs

something like this http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/453...rainyside2.jpg

(I'm assuming that 2nd one is someone on here but I got it from google images so idk who's it is....looks awesome though)

If your truck is lifted i'd go with the 1st one. If you truck is stock or close to stock i'd go with the 2nd one.

Yeah, I would say the first one would look great with some nice big tires.

I've never been a fan of the bumpers with the light and grille guards built in. Personally, I'd stick with just the custom bumper without the guards, or the straight up brush guard.
