Default Reinforced bumper vs Brushguard

I was thinking of getting a reinforced bumper but with the economy and price of stuff and I don't make a fortune I thought about a Brush guard
The reason I wanted a reinforce bumper was.
1. protects my vehicle from animals that may appear along with other drivers. 2. a 2" receiver in front can serve many purposes. mount a wench you can pull from either end. mount a step and you can work under the engine without out a stand or in emergency situations. This has nothing to do with me but for those tight situations when backing a trailer you could swap it and push it in if you can't back it in.

I figure a reinforce bumper being attached to the frame directly so no worries about you running into something and it bending the brushguard or receiver.
The downside is weight. I see these on 3/4 ton trucks but is it to much for a 1/2ton?

Any suggestions

To me, getting a brush/grille guard can definitely protect the front-end of your rig. My brother has the Tough Country brush guard on his F150, and it looks good. The design is contoured around the headlights.
