    As I was on my way to a birthday party this evening I had to do some evasive driving to avoid a collision with a deer, Whew ! My question is: has any body hit a deer with a brushguard or Bambi bars, what kind of damage incurred and did the cost of the brushguard/Bambi bars compensate for the damage that might have happened or maybe the deductable ? :help:

    When it comes to a project or a task at hand, I am a bull not a ballerina, I have a bad habit of letting my equiptment pay for my sins. Sad, very sad ! :(

    the bed liner in my taco is all dented and scraped up, the only thing i try to protect on my truck is the paint if i can help it. i have yet to crap my pants while trying to fart, thus staining the seat. i need a set of the trd/turd seat covers

    Yeah mine has some nasty scars too. I am pretty regular so I take my dumps at appropriate locations, but damn that coffee, my fault, i failed at multi-tasking, steering, shifting, and flipping the bird at some jack off telling me to pay attention to the road, the nerve of some people?!

    A while ago there was a group buy at another site for Road Armor bumpes. One guy told a story of working on a oil rig in Alaska or somewhere and a truck pulling up with a Road Armor bumper. it was covered in blood since it hit two elk on the way up but no body damage. i dont know if it was a true stroy or not but i'd believe it based on how big those bumpers are. I cant tell if i like them or not. They're ugly as hell but kind of in a good way. you may want to look them up.

    As for bullbars, i had a buddy run his truck intoa big ditch while being stupid ina field a few weeks ago. his front end was pretty banged up and he's gonna need some body work but the bull bar took the brunt of the damage. he would be shelling out alot more money if he didnt have one

    most of the ones around here are just gangbangers, so if they do wear a hat it's usually some fubu crap turned sideways. i try not to mess with them too much, just swerve around them and keep driving

    I've heard it's been getting pretty heated up in Il. I try not to get involved when I see a kangaroo and a wallaby going down the street.
