Hi all,
New member first post.

It only took me 12 years, but I finally got myself a truck. Had it for 3 days and I still can't take my eyes off of it when I'm outside.

Anyway, I have a question on brush guards. I'm thinking of adding one, but only because of deer.

Will the brush guard offer the truck any protection at all against a deer? I know they're not made for that, but will the guard and frame support a deer strike?

BTW, I'm not planning on mowing them down if I get one ;)

Thanks.

The brush guard is ok for brush. If you hit a Deer with a Brushguard say on the right side the Whole Brushguard gets pushed into the truck and also messes up the opposite side. Where I live the Deer population is high, I hit atleast one a year if not two. The BullBar is the best for Deer, although it doesn't protect the whole front end it also doesn't wreck the whole front end like the Brushguard. The BullBar slams the Deer to the ground and then you just run them over. And hope you have enough clearance under the truck if not oh well. Nothing is gonna protect you 100 percent, I hit alot of Deer and I found the BullBar Protects the Truck the best. (A good bullbar)

Holy crap where did you get that from an H1. That is an exception to a standard brushguard. Did you ever mow a deer down with that thing? Are those fogs in there also. Nice

A brush guard would probably be worse. Along with damage to your truck, you will have to replace an expensive brush guard when it hits a deer.

Brush Guards are GREAT for Deer. They should be referred to as "Deer Friendly" though and not harmful to deer. Your truck will effectively be totalled, but the deer will scamper away unhurt after the shock of being "brushed" wears off.

Not for nothing, but a brush guard is designed for brush and other similar type things. You need a good old fashioned cattle guard, see above ^^^^ like one from Ranchhand type builders. I am sure a great one could be made affordably. I even looked into before the last hike in steel pricing, and could have made a bang up one for around 500 or so.
