Stable in Wyoming winds

My 2004 T1N has the ASR. I've driven in winds so bad it would downshift automatically to stay at highways speeds and yet it went down the road just fine. My old Dodge maxivan wouldn't do that! I talked to another Sprinter owner with the high roof and he agreed as he had the Ford maxi and experienced both in the Wyoming winds. I had to dodge a deer west of Gillette Wyoming late at night on I-90 in the wind some years back. I got so close I could see the van reflected in his eye but, with antilock brakes, quick steering and a stable platform I managed to miss him. I hit one east of Raton NM a few years back at 35mph and was able to drive away. I'm considering a brush guard for the future but, I can't settle on the one I want. Anybody know of one they would recommend?
