    Should I keep the bull bar or ditch it? I was thinking about getting something else but not sure.

    What ever you feel man, but i would go without because bull bars always (to me) make the front seem front heavy.

    Sell it for a grille... Or leave it? Either way, seems that everyone either has a bull bar or a grille, billet & mesh. I need a change:cool:

    Ditch it! It just looks odd to me. Tubes are to big or something. Ether go smaller and just get a light bar, or bigger and get a whole new bumper.
    Just my 2 cents.
