Opinions wanted on go rhino 3000 center push bar

Thinking about putting this on my truck.
http://www.truckstuffusa.com/3000ser...bygorhino.html
Few questions, anyone who has one, how much did you pay? The black one its $299.....any better deals?
2nd question, should i go with black or chrome? I prefer chrome but think black would look better on my truck and its obviously cheaper.
3rd question, should i even put a bull/push bar on? Love the way my truck looks now but think this would make it look even more badass...... plus add some deer protection.
Here is a Pic of my truck as it sits now.

Finally, anyone who has one of these...please feel free to leave me a picture of yours and any input. Thanks guys.

I like the clean look without a pushbar. Lowers the look of the front end.

That's fugly, and WTF is the 'patented' step on the front for? Either mini me mechanics, or pedestrians that get it the way.

It kind looks like something from a 80's SUV.

Err, I guess I don't like it much

I'm not a fan of the looks of the push bar but its your truck and your money so my opinion doesn't really count. It would definitely add some protection up front...most bull bars I've seen wouldn't add much protection but look better than a push bar to me. Your truck looks great as it sets right now IMO.

I have been thinking it over for quite sometime. I really like the idea of the push bar (just like a cop car/suv) I really like the look but I don't know if it matches my Tundra. Plus my wife already complains about the CM being hard to park.. adding this wouldn't help..
I really don't think it looks bad at all on a Tundra..

Pushbars and other 4x4-type bolt-ons on a sport truck theme does not look right in my opinion. It doesn't exactly look BAD, but it does not look right either.

I used to have a Westin Safari bar on my old truck but have lost interest. It cuts approach angle and makes it harder to park but doesn't provide much in protection.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

I like the push bar style but theirs look way to high. If they stopped it right at that center bar I'd get one.

Not a huge fan of it but I also don't thing it look terrible. In any case, if you go with it, check out TruckAddon's with promo code SAVE20 it looks to be about $25 cheaper than the link you were using.

They make the full brush guard but I don't think they make a center only model for the Tundra...they do make push bars for other brands.
