I think I need a bumper

This is what a deer does to your truck @ 70mph.




Any suggestions for a bumper?

I don't offroad, so one to bust down small trees is not necessary.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Holy crap! I hope you're ok Russ. And that poor truck! Here's hoping you can get it fixed quick.

I am curious though, did you keep the deer?

Oh yeah, I'm fine. No worries there.

Deer is pulverized pretty much. She skidded across the pavement quite a ways and then was run over by 3 other vehicles.

Damn Russ...that's a shame right there buddy. I guess if there is a bright side to this...you get to have some toy's added to it. Are you looking for a brush gaurd type bumper? Or just a sleek aftermarket?

Probably this one. Like I said I do not need one that can take on a small redwood tree.

The issue is money. I will get a certain amount from insurance, whatever the cost of an OEM bumper, after that, it's my coin. And the budget is tight... ok I'm cheap.
