Donít take this the wrong way.....and to each his own, but that thing would be useless in anything other than a fender bender with a Range Roverís tail gate.
Iím no engineer, but the purpose of a bumper is to at least take a bit of a hit, before doing damage to your vehicle. That pre-runner design with no real ďbumperĒ has itís place, but they give you very little front end protection, this one also has the added benefit of doing more damage to your vehicle with the tubes if you were to really smack into something.
I say take this as learning experience and be glad you werenít in a more serious accident and look into getting a true bumper, designed and engineered to provide protection to the front end of your rig.....and you!
