> Found the brush guard/grill guard you've been looking for. It's attached to this truck.

I think they were a factory option, I had one on one of my B2s, I took it off because it was too wimpy. The guard itself was "okay", but, the mounting tabs to the factory bumper were just barely one step above sheet metal, I doubt it would stop a deer at 20 MPH.
There were similar aftermarket ones floating around too. Factory brackets like like at least 3/16"

Very few bolt on things will stop a deer at speed. Pretty much the best you can look for is to keep them out of the radiator.

There is a reason they are called brush guards and not deer guards.

Except for ones built into purpose built off road bumpers and ones made for semis, I haven’t seen many that would survive an impact with a deer.
