.....There might be an insurance company issue here as with my personal vehicle insurance.....that being I can't have a heavy duty bumper on my pickup without paying an extra premium of about $70 a year IIRC....anyway they will allow a DDRD [Deer Damage Reduction Device].....so you know what my bumper is called?....that's right DDRD....it attaches to the frame under the front end....my stock bumper is in the oem place and the DDRD is infront of it......they took a pix and approved it....what can I say?.....geof

....John....from the insurance companies stand point...It's a liability....the average cost of repairs in USA for all vehicles for a year is about $15.00 per vehicle....Much more is paid out for personal injury and defending the driver when in a accident....with the bumper on my truck- I probably won't sustain much damage but the other guy is going to get a whackin'...big time....so I guess the cost of protecting myself/vehicle has to be viewed from their perspective....Which is just another reason why I want NO-FAULT in Ohio.....but the trial attorneys would have to get another job...like maybe being bathroom attendants or something like that...geof

Looks like thoose would kill a bull. Almost look like dozer blades on the front. Not quite as nice as the one I mentioned I saw.

.....a new hood aftermarket would cost me $1100 out the door so a few bucks on a BULL BAR would be a step in the right direction I believe....geof

Where did you get all of the helpers?
