Opinion on Bull-Bar

I have just ordered KOR Roof-Mount Light-Bar... I was considering adding a bull-bar in the front w/two 6" DayLighters. Does anyone else have this set-up? I'd love to see pictures because a google search yielded few results. I'm not sure if alone the roof lights alone will look dopey, or the bull-bar with roof-lights will look "overkill-ish"?

I also worry the bull-bar will make the front of the truck appear lower...

A pic would help big time... I'm going to peruse the "lift-thread" and see if they're are any, but if someone could save me time...

Yes I probably think too much and probably need to be medicated.

Waste of money. Anything you bump with that is going to bend it right into your plastic bumper.

I was thinking about a bull-bar for a long time...but if I'm going to drop money on something that is going to increase the weight of my car, therefore decrease mileage/speed....I want a heavy-*** steel bumper that will destroy anything I hit...

never have been able to find any bumper that really looks good with the ZJ to me...

The lighter the better. I have become a minimalist in my later years.

I figured as much, I was thinking it was more for looks, or a reason to hang lights on it. I suppose if I wanted more lighting, I could mount them on the bumper.

The Brush Guard was on it from the Previous Owner, not sure of the brand... May be able to find out though.
It bolts on, on the top side through the grill and then also to the same points as Factory tow hooks, so you have to extend those bolts if you have hooks.

That is KOR's light bar and lights, and then on the guard are Hella 500 lights

This is the bull bar I purchased off eBay six months ago. It is black powder coated and is a once piece welded guard. The second picture is the damage caused by a 200 pound buck. Pretty minimal.

I apologize for the giant pictures, not sure how to re-size them. Just sent to my e-mail and uploaded here.
