    And now (had my body guy color match the grill. looks a little funky because of the frost on my hood) Looking up close, you cannot tell anything ever happened.

    A big thanks to Todd @ New Creations in Telford PA

    He mostly does high end restoration jobs and insurance claims. I have seen plenty of his work and have never seen anything other than perfection, so if anyone is in need, PM me for contact info or just google New Creations.

    Also picked these seat covers up from craigslist for $50. I am a truck driver so there is always a chance of having heavy grease on my clothes. These ease my mind a bit


    I am having my rear bumper color matched as well in the next week or so. Will post pictures then

    Your truck is looking good. Very nice job! Wish his shop was close to me. Can't find a quality shop around here.

    ARB Deluxe bull bar.

    rated for the outback in nailing kangaroos and i've seen about 2 threads on their effect on bambi that walk in front. the damage is minimal and it's a beefy ass looking piece of armour. Its the one im going for when suspension money comes.

    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!
    The truck came out looking just like new. I had the same thing happen last winter....I upgraded with the $ the insurance company gave me. I average at least 1 deer every 3 to 4 years. They're everywhere around here.

    Granted it was a small deer that didn't do as much damage as I would think. I picture my first gen with the plastic bumper completely caving in/totaled if I hit a deer

    Yeah, I have no idea why it didn't do more damage. I didn't have time to hit the brakes and never left my lane... I just slammed right into it. Truck held up really good which I am very happy about.
