Front bumper ideas

I was thinking of making a front bumper/brushguard for my dad's F-250 in shop class. Could you guys help me come up with a bumper/brushguard that not only looks cool but is really tough and not extremly heavy?

I would kill to have a truck like Tanks. I really want to make my own bumper because I have very little money, access to the school's metal shop, and my uncle has a whole bunch of steel I could buy off of him really cheaply.

If you search on here. You will find a posting by Tank that shows the deminsions of his bumper and a write up of basically how he made it.

If you use that you can change the design to fit your needs. But at least you will have a base for your imagination.
