Tips on Grille Guards

I have been looking at getting a Grille/Brush guard for my 08 TRD offroad taco. I want to make sure it offers plenty of protection while allowing me to add lights or possibly a winch if i want to. Any suggestions?

most of the regular "brushguards" that i have seen for the tacomas are decent looking and all, but as far as any real collision protection and mounting a winch, besides an aftermarket bumper,such as an arb or allpro plate bumper, the only real brushguard i have seen that is able to mount a winch too and have it be strong enough to work is the warn trans4mer. most regular brush guards arent strong enough to support a winch, and normal bull bars wouldnt stand a chance, as they be ripped right off the front of the vehicle i believe.

im gonna get a regular full brushguard for my 04, but im not planning on mounting a winch on it, if i decide to, i'll have to figure a way to mount the winch to the frame.

Do you know of any good guards that are affordable, good looking, and allow me to add a few lights. I also have a stock skid plate on it now and i would like to be able to keep it.

check all these out.............some more expensive than others, but they look pretty good, imo, and there are mounts for lights also.

This one is good quality and the cheapest I've found at $279 and free shipping. They also have them in stainless but I believe they are $100 more. I got a black one for my dad a year ago and it's nice.
