    I jest needed to vent. I freaking hit a deer this morning on my way to work. Wait the deer actually hit me not to sure if im gonna claim it or not on my insurance i need to go wash the truck to know the extent of the damage rignt now i see a scratch on the front drivers side fender flare and two scratches on the back door on the bottom and maybe a small dent above the tacoma badge on the drivers door. hard to see unless in sunlight still cant tell tho needs to be washed. This sucks havent even had the truck a year.

    I know you are just upset, but that could have been 1000x's worse. It sucks, but relatively unscathed.

    I know i got lucky but its still kinda upsetting dont know if i should get the few scratches fixed and the dent/ding smoothed out or not or call them battle scares for a little character for the truck

    Heres the one i hit back in January in the car.

    So it def could of been worse.

    Be thankful it's just scratched/scuffed. A deer did about $3700 in damage to my front end a couple years ago a few months after I bought my truck.

    I avoided a deer the other day but when it ran by it kicked my front bumper and left a nice little gash :(, I've had deer run there heads into the side of my car and everything around here.

    leave it!! other than the hair i can’t even tell.. also if you leave it you’r insurance wont go up (idk about your plain but i’m just saying) and you wont have another claim on it. i (and prob a lot of guys on here) would just leave it.

    Seriously, quit complaining. I hit one going 75 on the interstate, it destroyed the entire front end. I mean literally destroyed it, there was no grill left at all the the radiator was in pieces. You'll scratch your truck up worse than that the first time you take it off road.
