    On April Fools day no less. Caught the 3rd out of the 4 that bombed across the highway.

    Trouble is I am working in Missouri for the next 5-6 weeks.

    Stealership or Body Shop?

    Recommendations for the Jefferson City area?

    Thanks Fellas!

    Driver side front is trashed.

    Definitely going through Insurance.

    Magnetic, those are nice. Believe me I am thinking about it. Pardon the pun, but what was the damage to your wallet for those? Who made them?

    I just started shopping for some deer killing armor last might.

    OP> Man, I really hate that for you. I hope you're able to get it fixed good as new.

    Magnetic> That bumper you are adding to your truck looks awesome. I can't wait to see pics. Looks like an aesthetic match to the 2012-2013 front end. I have a 2013, and I'd love to see the pics once you get it installed.

    I hate deer. A doe took me out on a Kawasaki ZRX1100 I used to own.Middle of the day and she came out of the woods like she was shot out of a cannon.Hit me in my front left turn signal. I was lucky I was only going about 40mph. I ended up with a broken rib.
    Have yet to hit one in my truck (knock on wood).
    My brother hit one in his Chevy truck which was then known as "Deerslayer" forever after.

    LoneCynic> I wish i had a 12 or 13, that pelfreybilt bumper is the one i like the most. I will have pics in the mgm thread and the fab fours thread. may even put them in the 2nd gen bumper thread also.

    TreeMan> I got the set for a grand. you can buy them at 4wheelparts.com i think the prerunner runs around 1500, which is what i got and the rear can run up to 900 with the tire carrier, i think.

    I like that. It is not too off road specific. I mean with regards to the designs and anglulation that the other after market bumpers seem to have.

    Deer fucking suck, I'd go with a quality body shop; they do a much better job than the dealer.

    The problem is I am in Missouri working and I don't know anything about the place. Ended up going to a dealer.
