Bull Bar or Brushguard?

I have an 04 fx4 in true blue. I was thinking of getting a bull bar or brushguard. Those of you who have them what do you recommend? Stainless or black? Also on the brushguards do the bars over the headlights make shadows or anything while you are driving? Please help me decide!

While I don't have one, I'd love to get a stainless bull bar. I prefer the looks of a bull bar.

With the color of your truck I think stainless would look the best. Do you have tube steps? If so what finish are they, probably should match...

I have a Wagg brush guard on my truck, and I have been pretty happy with it. No, the bars across the headlights do not affect the lights at night.(you don't even know they are there)
I am however going to sell the brush guard and get a black bull guard and a new grill. I think it makes the front end cleaner looking.

I chose the Westin one in black, but I'm having it painted AZ beige. My truck's black w/ the AZ beige on the bottom. Other wise I'd have gone with the stainless. I think the stainless are also warrantied longer than the black ones.

If you ever want a winch just get a front receiver and a winch mounted on a cradle with a 2" square receiver bar. That way you can remove the winch when you don't need it and can move it from from to rear or from truck to truck if have 2 or more trucks...

with the warn it mounts to your tow hook space so you lose your factory hooks but there are tow hooks on the bottom sides of the brush guard

I agree with Serge. I would have already gotten the Westin bull bar on my truck, but I don't want to lose the tow hooks.
