Can't speak to the Bronco brush guard. We live in deer/elk country in western Colorado. I have a RanchHand grille guard on my F250. It has survived any number of wildlife collisions without any damage. But if you buy a cheap grille guard it will end in your radiator.I have more experience with hitting deer than I do brush guards. Realistically speaking, how would the outcome have been different had a brush guard been present?
What level of protection does it provide in a situation like this?
