Just FYI, but a "Bull Bar" or a "roo basker" IS a full bumper. a "Full Bull Bar" includes the side/fender bars for knocking over run away/scrub cattle... It's an Ausie thing and frankly they do what they're suposed to. They keep buls/cattle and Roo's from ending up in your cab with you after a strike. I'm alive to prove that.
I'm guessing what you're refering to is a "Push Bar" like a single hoop that attaches to somewhere under the front valance and comes up in the center of the stock bumper like a fat lip... Those can work just fine for mounting lights but the ones like ARB makes are still somewhat costly for what they are and they actualy leve you with LESS aproach angle making damage more likely IMO even on bad roads... A friend of mine has one on her Rav 4 and it's been kind of a nightrmare when she got into some deep, heavy icy snow in a ski area parking lot. Something to think about.
IMO Bars are useless unless you're just pre-running (even then a full tube bumper is a nice to have) but you can get a simple tube with Tabs welded on that'll mount on your stock bumper for now...Think of a single smaller diameter tube that mounts along the top flat surface of your stock bumper but can have anywhere from two to as many lights on it as you can cram on there and make tabs for eh. That'll get your lights on. for now. AND you won't have alot invested for when you CAN afford or ecide you want a full bumper. I know how much it hurts to junk pieces you paid good money for eh.
