Going with the smaller ones might not be that bad. As far as blocking air flow, your not going to have a problem.

the smaller ones should yield almost as much useable light as the bigger ones, not to mention they'll save you some money, look sleeker, and may even be less of a drain on your battery to keep them running. i want a westin bull bar with just two small hella lights and thats it, until i decide if i wanna do a roof bar or not when i pursue my tacoma prerunner-trophy truck prerunner ideas next year

I am in the same boat with you. I want what I had on my 04, which was a westin "Safari" bar

Unfortunately in their infinite wisdom Westin does not make a mounting kit for this bar for the gen 2 trucks.

I am leaning toward ordering the mounting kit for the current generation 4-runner and seing if I can either adapt that to mount to the taco, or fabing up a mount myself.

I'll keep you posted as I get to it or get more information.
