    I wish i had a picture of the deer. Needless to say, it died a quick and painless death.

    Not to bad for a 75MPH hit. My son's Honda Fit took $1400.00 damage and he was stopped. The deer ran into the front fender right at the wheel. These are some tough trucks.

    Hmmmm venison.

    Y'all got whitetail? Looks like it was small/low.

    My other truck is an old chebbie 3/4 ton crew cab locomotive with a 300# ranch hand grill guard (I am not kidding, had to mount it with floor jacks). Have pegged a half dozen deer in that thing, no dents, just hose off the blood.

    Just a matter of time til a deer totals my taco. I bet you got $1500 in damage there.

    Not enough to mention on this one. Give me time!
    Sorry about your luck! Being on the East coast almost every shop is used to this kind of damage so I am sure they will have you fixed up in no time...

    To hell with getting your bumper fixed. Take the insurance money and get an ARB for that thing. You'll never have to worry about fixing a deer damaged bumper again.
