    I've run over a few deer over the years but this time I don't think I can fix and save bumper. Don't want to spend too much but will compromise with something I like. Don't anyone know or point in the right direction where I could get a steel bumper for a Ch613 sba. Or would settle for a cheap plastic one.

    We are a Mack dealer and we sell chrome steel bumpers from Hendrickson for around $850 and new plastic Mack bumper is over $1000.

    I have a heavy steel bumper on my cl,it was on the truck when I bought it but I know the previous owner had it made by a steel shop,pretty simple for them to do you just need to give them the measurements or maybe your old bumper. Attached File  000_0206.jpg   1.39MB   1 downloads

    That's exactly what I did on the CH tractor that I made into a dump truck, the original plastic bumper hung down too low for off road work.

    Just call a "crop shop" and tell them to put two bends (with a break) on a sheet of steel(1/4"). notch in a couple of wings and weld er up. About 250 bucks all said and done. just change the mounting plates to 1/2" and they'll hold well. four deer and two elk, slight bend in the middle, little tremclad, and the dealer still wanted to know where I bought it. Don't shell out an grand , 250 steel and 750 welder, and the welder doesn't hit deer much...
