Bumper ideas

So i have some 2x3x3/16" rec tubing laying around.. and i was flipping through a few designs in my head..

these are probably the least complicated i could come up with.. should i build a front or rear bumper? If i have enough tubing I'm leaning towards the front one.

i only have enough 2x3 to do the top piece of the front design.. It looks like if i want to finish it today i have to use my expensive 2x4x.250 for 2 of the 4 supports.

once i get back from my trip to katemcy I'll build which ever one i didn't get around to now.

I'm gonna do a little hoop/stinger just to protect the radiator/engine if i ever roll it.

I didn't have enough metal to do all of what i wanted to do, but i got a sweet little push bar type thing built. and its SOLID
