    Coming home Friday night from upstate in the adirondacks going southbound on the Taconic Parkway at dusk, a doe jumps out in front of me. I saw her cross the road 75-100 yards ahead so I slowed down expecting another to follow her. As I was just passing her she doubled back right in front of me. I hit her somewhat hard as I slowed down to about 35-45 MPH. I am amazed at how well the truck took the impact. I have no paint damage nor sheet metal damage. The passenger fender is a little out of wack but I think it will go back easily enough.The only damage is both headlight cases busted and a few small brackets behind the urethane bumper are bent up. Even the grill is fine, just one crack in the bottom mount. Really lucked out on this one!!
    Question. Were do I get the parts? Do I need to go to the dealer or are these parts also found in the aftermarket? Can I just get the headlight case or is it only sold as a complete unit with the lenses. My lenses are fine just the mounting brackets in the case are busted.:D

    Already looking at the halos on E-Bay. My stockers had the smoked lenses.
