In my opnoin they are not always for 4wd. If I could put one on my wifes new corolla I would because of the deer population where I live. LOL. I think it is up to you and what you are going to do with the truck. Good luck deciding.

I doubt that a brush guard is going to stop the damage from a deer.

If you lift your truck yes.
If you leave it stock no.
Personally I see brush guards as dead weight unless you drive in a rural area where you need it for brush!

As for deer.. get a ranch hand style one that is part of the bumper and that should help with your deer problem..
