QFT (Quoted for Truth)...depending on speed/braking distance of course.

My wife's parents live an area that is nothing but deer. One of my big concerns is hitting one...(especially on our motorycles). I'm thinking that if I wanted to, I could probably justify getting an inexpensive steel bumper for that reason alone.

The jeep has no airbag sensor in the bumper. The only airbag sensor is a gforce meter (unless you have side airbags)...... if it goes off you "need" it.

That said it is 100% legal to disable your airbag.

I was considering these:
Has anybody purchased the e-auto grille bumpers

But it looks like our forum vendor stopped selling them a couple of weeks ago.

I know. But I worry the force of hitting the deer will still set it off.

No way, it's far too soft. MAYBE a moose, but even thats unlikely. You have a 5000lb brick with a steel bumper hutting a soft movable object. The force wont be great enough to trip the sensors with a steel bumper.

Depending on what your driving like a lifted 3/4 ton truck + anything smaller and the moose 9 out of 10 goes over the hood and ends up in the front or rear seat.

You should be able to push those dents out of the plastic by heating them up with a hair dryer or a heat gun....The fender is another story. You could drill some small holes on both sides of the breaks and "lace" it back together with wire.....Yea, I know, it'll look like Sh-t but it's better than flopping around and you could still drive it while you hunt down parts.... ( Or more Deer )... Small pieces of metal bolted to the fender across the breaks would also hold it together for a while....
Good Luck..... "BH"
