Need your opinion

A few months ago I purchased the bull bar and lights on the front of my mada from Scorpion. I really liked it. Then I found a great deal on my 24" rims so I picked them up. Since then I have been on the fence if I like the rims with the bull bar. Looks like I have off road and street all mixed up. I took off the bull bar this weekend to see which way I like it better. Now I ask you fellow armadians what is your vote. Do you like it with the bull bar or without?

I like the look without the bar. If the bar was chrome, it would blend better for a street look. Either way a great looking 'mada.

Without the bar is a much cleaner look and fits your Armada much better.

The next question is: I have a chrome Westin Bullbar and want a black powder coat one, so if you are interested I would be willing to trade. I took off my bottom Westin grill/plate and just have to run in down in my basement and put it back on.

not sure about the rim but they look similar to my Axis Titan but mine are black with the polish lip..which are on sale by the way.

btw..without the bar. if don say without and he has one, you know its not bias.
