Need some opinions

I welded on a bumper my girlfriends dad made for his CJ-7 on my YJ. Now im wanting to make a grille guard for it that will be welded on. I just want to hear other peoples thoughts on it.
Here is a pic of the bumper.

and I drew this up to see what design I like. Feel free to post up any ideas you have.

P.S. The one in the lower right is not my design its my girlfriends.

1. I like how you put in the windshield wipers. That's attention to detail, man!

2. The pictures don't match up. The simple design shown on the Jeep, or the more complex one in lower left?

3. Most grill guards go across about the mid height of the grill. Yours seems taller. Does it stick out like a stinger? A functional stinger probably needs fewer angles - but most are decorative anyway, so do what you like.

4. It's your Jeep. Quit asking people if they like what you like. You like what you like. That's a hell of a lot more important*

*Keep in mind I wear black socks and Crocs. So you know, free advice is worth the price.

I agree keep it simple looks good the way it is. But its yours so do what you like not what anyone else likes or thinks you should do.

So do I. But I have thought of a better idea I dont know if any one has tried it before but I really like it.
Something like this off a ford tractor painted black, right in front of the grille.
