My home made deer proof bumper

Just finished it up and got it mounted. It weighs 70lbs and dropped the front 1/8" over stock. Bring on the deer about hit two just this week.

Nice but I was expecting something along the lines of a cow catcher on the front of old locomotives, lol.

Nice. Funny thing is I was just logging on to post about the best bumper to "deer proof" my JK. Its a DD, with light off roading on weekends. Any suggestions help. Sorry if i hijacked your thread. Id buy one if you were selling.

Any that has a hoop and is made of metal.

Deer arent solid rock, you just gotta keep them off the sheet metal and the grille.

Theres no need to have a thread of whats best, as its up to you. Research my friend.

First off thanks for the advice, with a 40 mile one way trip through the county I have been fortunate enough not to feel how soft a deer is yet with my bumper...In your opinion, Do you think something like a bull bar would be sufficient? Ive seen some bolt on bumpers that you still keep the stock one on and I was a bit weary of this.

Really the best would be a full width ARB style with bull bar.

Personally I hate full width, and bull bars but thats just visual opinion.

The deer weighs alot, mass at speed means destruction. The most vulnerable being:

A. Grille
B. Fenders/flares
C. Steering components
D. Hood

If something bounces off itll go up or under, a stinger keeps them down where its less likely to damage anything.

IndyJeep, thanks again. Research is good but I respect the opinions of forum members. Have to agree with you on the bull bar look, never considered a stinger. Guess Ill have to just browse and order. Thanks again for your time and input!

Thanks, After a deer ran into me while on my Harley at 55 mpg I don't have much love for them.

Looks Great! With the way my season has been going so far I might have better luck filling my freezer by installing one of these and aimlessly driving around! Never ceases to amaze me I can sit in the woods all day and not see a thing, come home and find 8 of them standing on my front lawn in suburbia. They are way smarter than I give them credit for.

Maybe if we mounted a gun to the bumper we wouldn't see any on the road.....
