Brush guard...

Alright, well I'm planning on buying a brush guard here really soon, and I have it narrowed down to two of them . I've found them on eBay and I'm not sure which one would be the best. The second one is stainless steel. Which one do u guys think would look better on my truck and is it worth the extra for the one with stainless steel?

Here are the two guards:

Nice, its not prone to rust or anything like that is it? I know it's not stainless like the other one, so you think it'll last as long, as long as I keep her clean?

1st one taht black no doubt! I dont like chrome on trucks. Its too shiny for getting dirty!

I'm trying to figure out out how I can paint over the crome on my bull bar. It came free on the truck, so I wasnt complaining when I bought it.

Thanks guys! I'm hoping to order this ASAP, I can't wait! One of my friends got a brush guard a while back for his Dodge and he told me to just go and buy some new bolts from Lowe's, you think that'd just be best to do from the start?

Can you put lights on this brushguard? I was just wondering if it came with places to mount them or if you have to make your own.

that is sweet I think I may get one as my next upgrade. What is the difference in the yellow hellas and the white ones? Just the different shade or is there a purpose? I don't really know a lot about the auxillary lights.

the 2 clear ones have a long range beam, where as the yellow ones are fogs, and they throw a wide, yellowish beam, and it allows you to see the sides more clearly....especially in rain/snow and fog.
