Thinking about a bullbar, opinions

EDIT: Can someone photoshop a bullbar on my truck?

As the title says I am thinking about getting a bullbar, would it look out of place on my truck? I'm having a hard time picturing it. I'm thinking it would make it look meaner, what do y'all think?

yeah don't do it. You lose approach angle. Unless your strictly street then they look ok.

I would say no on your truck. It really looks good as it sits.

I say get one, but that's just me. I take my truck offroad, not so extreme that every approach angle is important. I hit mud holes, not climb mountains, or rock crawl. Anyways, do what you think would look better. Here are some of my truck with, without and one from the front.

well, I dont go offroading in the truck, it is strictly street, so thats not an issue. I love the way the bullbar looks, I'm just not sure on my truck. Can someone photoshop one on my truck?

Also, for those who want to know, the hood came from www.ramairhood.com BUT it doesnt look like they sell them anymore. I bought it about a year ago. They had them on sale for ~$550.
