Well that's an interesting thought, if so, I think I'd first check my insurance coverage as your radiator will be the least of your worries should you tangle with one of them Critters.

Just ordered a 2017 Ram 3500 DRW to pull our Arctic fox 5th wheel.

Before it leaves the lot it'll have a steel replacement bumper with grill guard and a 40" light bar.
Going with an Elite black steel model.
Not too bad price wise ($1200).

I don't see how a brush guard on the front of the towing vehicle will do anything. You'd have to be pretty close to someone to have stones pop up and hit your radiator enough to do damage to it. I think you're talking about an auto bra.
