Need Lighting and bumper advice

I was never looking to rig my truck with a bunch of after market stuff just because it is my work truck. However, I need to rig my truck to where it is the work truck I want.

I have my ARE shell coming and I have posted the interior work that I did
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...mods-pics.html

Now I need lighting. I hate the high beams on the Taco. It's like watching a movie from behind wax paper. I have yet do the mod to make my fog lights turn on all the time but that will only help to a point. I want some small angle lights.

What I would like from you (TW) is suggestions on a full bumper and lights. I don't have a budget per se but I don't want to break the bank either. Remember I just bought the Taco and dropped $2000 for my ARE.

I am not a fan of bullbars and I need the protection as I have already dinged the front end.

I kinda like the ARB bumper myself.

Here's what my '08 looks like with the ARB and the covers on the IPF lights. I have them set to come on & off with the high beams and set high enough to see deer & cows early enough for braking at highway speed. I know of one customer with the ARB who hit two deer at highway speed. The only damage to his truck was the bent license plate and the blood & hair all over the front end.
