Gotta give you a hard time Enkei.
As for the bumpers, I've yet to have experience with either but I'm found both to be fairly similarly reviewed. I'm currently having the same internal debate on which to get and I think it'll probably just come down to which I like the look of better, though even that is a pretty close call.
To Be Completed (Eventually):

ya ill be getting a wench and i will be putting 4 piaa lights in the bumper when i get it. Jeremy they both have a spot that will hold a wench and they also make a tow hitch adapter for the front so you can switch it between the front and rear bumpers they make instead of the having it mounted to the front. here are the two styles im looking at from road armor and the bumper will be colored match.

ya the truck up toop do look like crap but im more wondering which style bumper to go with the stealth look of the top one or the pre runner look

You should look into Flog Industries bumpers. To me they seem to flow better with the truck. I want one but will wait until I go crazy on my truck.

im likeing the flog bumper but the only problem with that is it needs to mount a wench into it

Now you know why I chose a hidden kit and had my fairlead cover smoothed and paint-matched. Then again, BC/DR scenarios are key to how I think for business reasons, so I stopped to consider what could happen ... and how bad it'd be if I failed to notice it.
