Questions for those running lod armor lite front bumpers

I ordered an lod armor lite mid width bumper the other day. I just got the base bumper, but was considering adding both the skid plate and the bull bar attachment. My questions are these:

How does it look with the bull bar and no winch?

Is the skid worth getting? What does it protect?

If I mount the bumper and get the bull bar later, do I have to remove the bumper to mount the bull bar or can it be installed with the bumper on the jeep?

I don't have the mid, but I've got the stubby and it looks great without a winch. The bumper doesn't stick out as far as other winch-ready bumpers I've seen. I've yet to even use my winch....just slide it in the rear hitch in case I think I'll be getting stuck (mine is used for hunting in central/north Texas and never sees rocks, only mud whenever it rains). Anyway, I also have the stinger bolted to mine and if I were to take it off, I'd have to remove the bumper. It may be different on non-rubi models, but because of the sway bar disconnect mechanism, I can't get my hands up in behind the bumper. If you want any pics of the stubby w/o a winch, let me know.
Oh, and I got the skid only because of the sway bar disconnect mechanism....and it does a great job at protecting it.

Thanks, this is great information. I have a sport so I think I'll forgo the skid for the time being and save myself the $80 for now since I don't have a sway bar disco to worry about. I can always add it later if I feel the need.
