    That is why steel bumpers should reduce your insurance premium.

    Deep collisions are considered comprehensive damage and should not affect your rates. I hit one last month with my 2004 taco. I pocketed the $500 check from my insurance company and sold the truck. You can only do this if the truck is paid off.

    If it's not paid off, the insurance company will likely write the check in the name of the repair shop.

    I'm also an animal lover - though I don't mind hunting as long as the kill is eaten. I hit a baby dear about a month ago and I felt so damn bad for him. I was looking at him laying there and he began to convulse but I think it was just nerves (probably already dead). If he was still alive, I had planned to back my truck over him again to ensure he was not suffering. May sound sick but it's better than having it suffer.


    Once it stopped convulsing and I knew he was dead, I screamed and yelled at the damn thing for messing up my truck. I was mad!


    I plan to put deer whistlers on the front of my new truck. Some say they don't work but for $1.50, I'll give it a shot.

    Thanks for the post I will be looking around for a bumper at the places posted on here. I guess I was really lucky not to get hurt and the first scratch sendrome is over and know I can build it the way I want. As soon as I get a day off I am going to post some pics. Well back to work her comes the boss man got to roll. FUN4YOU


    PS hopefully the truck will be fix by the end of the month, I am going to top sail beach NC at the end of the month.
