The Avid is the way to go. Brandon fab'd mine with no light tabs, but he can put as many as you want in just about any location. It's one of the few light bars that doesn't overwhelm the front end of the base truck.

I say option A. doesnt look overkill on the truck. bull bar just looks too bulky (and they make me sick) personally i think the avid bar is too much metal just to mount some lights on.

It depends on the laws/regulations in your area and the beam pattern of the lights (driving, spotlight, fog pattern). I wouldn't run an aux. light thats going to blind oncoming drivers.
