Brush Guard/Bumpers?

Hello!
I was hoping to get some insight on bumpers and brush guards. I was looking to purchase one in the near future and was wondering what you guys reccommend, and what the ups and downs of them are.
Thanks!!

Here are some I have been debating on...
Quality Road Armor Bumpers with winch Mount for Ford, Dodge, Chevy, GMC, Hummer and Jeep
TrailReady Winch Bumpers for Ford Super Duty Trucks - F250, F350, F450, F550


I like the steath bumper on the first link,the one were the pic doesn't load.some guy locally has one with a 15,000 warn in it.I drool eveytime I see it!!!Every bumper I have run across is freakin expensive....I have too much stuff left to do to my rig before I dump 2g's on a bumper!! That's a full 05 conversion,gauges,08 rear bumper and tailgate,and them some!!

I want one like the TrailReady link up there. I'm hoping to find a used one that someone has gotten tired of, or needs the money and wants to sell it cheap.

Ranch Hands don't add too much

The Legend Series for a 99-04 F350 lists at 115 pounds. Not too bad considering a 4" pipe wrapped in 12 ga steel and grill guard. There are an awful lot of deer around here at night and considering I get off work at 2200 every night, it'll be just a matter of time before I test that pipe's strength.
