    Thats what i started thinking of...my friend is a certified welder and welded this bumper out of steel piping all himself and put it on his jeep and told me last week he could it for me if i bought the steel...because before the deer i had clipped a tree and dented up my bumper so im either gonna do that or find a cheap bumper and get it painted and get my girlfriend grandpa to put it on...free of charge besides buying the bumper

    a small doe ran into the side of my girlfriend's Furd Fuckus a couple nights ago.

    ARB's are nice. Sturdy, well made. 3 hr install. I'm not convinced if I hit a deer it will splat like a bug, I do however feel the damage will be minimal if at all.

    3 bumpers later and your just not considering an aftermarket Bumper... Dude i nailed my first deer at 16 and from there whatever i owned had a bar up front. Id most gladly pay out a grand for an ARB instead of totaling my $20,000-$30,000 truck. Definitiely look into ARB or Relentless, Hell even Demello has some sick three hoop bumpers ive been eying!

    Dude you got off pretty lucky that that's all the deer did. Good thing it didn't smash up your grill, headlights, or hood.
