You may want to look into a safari bar, I am 98% sure that they are smaller in diameter. Along with the fact that they don't have a skid plate, it wouldn't look too cluttered, nor take away the focus from the rest of the truck.
These bars actually do serve a purpose, and that is to distort the force in a front end collision. I had a nice fenderbender in my Ranger while I had a bull bar on. Although my airbags ended up going off, the bull bar crushed between the two vehicles and only left minor damage on each.
