Get a custom bumper fabbed and welded up front. Then you will send that deer flying a couple feet and drive away spotless.

oh and I might try those deer whistle things, cause your truck wouldn't look good with a big bumper on it.

The warn transformer grill guard like mikerider has is probably the strongest grill guard you can buy for our trucks. Its made to be able to support the forces from a winch. It may help with small deer but if you hit a larger one then it will just cause more damage. If your grill guard fails and bends into the body then it normally just causes more damage, it smashes sheet metal that wouldnt have been smashed to begin with.

Sea-Bass and JimmyD have the kind of bumper you want. I think they will hold up to a deer or at least help prevent lots of damage. Those bumpers are sweet. I really want one.

Thanks guys, I think I'll try those deer warning signals for now, much less expensive.
I really do like the idea of a big fabbed bumper but I'm not sure if it would look right.
Maybe a grille guard like the warn transformer would work best.
