Which one....?

Looking at a full front replacement for my 08 F250CC. I need to keep her protected from the numerous animals that I have a habbit of hitting.... Stock ride height with 275/70/r18 duratracs. Tossed up between the traditional ranch hand style and the newer peace maker style. Will be having a hitch and shackle option on the front either way. Any thoughts between the 2 in terms of looks, ground clearance, over all protection, ect? Only things that drew me more to the newer style was that the 4" pipe frame work wraps around completely and that it has the option of custom fog light sleeves to keep the factory fog lights useable.

I don't like anything but the stock bumper look myself. But I do like the looks of the second one myself.

i would get one of those heavy duty light bars with a skid plate and just try to center up on any animal you might run into, or i would lift it and just roll over them. i know its a matter of taste but if i had to have one of those bumpers i would just get a car...they do not look right on a stock height truck

Leveling kit will be coming but not for a little while. The size tires I'm putting on are basically 33x11. Those lightbars won't offer me anywhere enough protection reason why I'm only looking at full front replacements.

Here are 2 better pics of the second option from peace maker. First one didn't really show at least to me.
