Go to a railroad scrap yard, get one of the old "wedge" things they used in the old days to move cows (I think that's what they were for?) out of the way. Or just mount a big spike on the front to impale it, that way you could still take it home and have dinner.
Actually, a Hanson bumper with a grille/bush guard might protect the front end from a deer. Hmmm, a cowcatcher might work too, but you'd still need something to stop it from hitting the D. As far as imports, I turned a Turbo Saab into a convertible one winter. :evillaugh
well, u could go with roadarmour but they are about 2 grand per bumper, but it has a cage that wraps over the hood.
if you arne't interested in that, your best bet would just be a mopar brush gaurd like i have or somethin of the like.
i dont know if any of you guys remember or not, but there was a picture of a durango t-boning a armored bank truck. it flipped the truck and did some damage to the durango, but mostly to the brush gaurd, all the body panels were good except for the drivers fender and windshield. that's pretty good crash protection IMO and in comparison a deer shouldn't be much of a problem.
Yep, I remember that one cbrenn. That was an awesome pic. As opposed to something to protect the front end, what about those little whistle things that stick on your front end. They're supposed to warn deer off or something, but I have no idea is they actually work.
I hit a young deer on the interstate a couple of years back in my Jeep. Killed the deer, but didn't do any damage at all to the Jeep. That's one seriously tough stock front end.
If your worried about price, ditch the Hanson idea and check out Kennesaw. They have a very heavy front bumper and very heavy brush guards. You can even get them to customize the bumper if you want additional tube steal added to the grill guard.
Like Cbrenn said, it won't stop all damage, but it will definitely stop alot of it.
