Hit a Deer...Then wheeled

Well I had work at 6:30am this morning and was heading to work when I saw a bunch of deer crossing the road. I slowed down and they got off the road so I was still goin 35. When one lone deer walked out infront of me and screwed my day.

The bumper has a big dent and my driverside foglight is broke, luckily it went under the truck and not over. The bumpers pushed in on one side and I probably wont fix it because it gives me a reason to build myself a plate bumper!

After work today I decided to do some wheelin to get rid of my frustration....The truck is nice and dirty now haha

1. If you see one deer, there is always at least one more.

2. If you see a herd of deer, there is always a straggler.

Next time, complete to a complete stop or less than ten miles an hour and slip on all your lights to QUADRUPLE check there are no more.




My grandpa who lives in like the most southern tip of Ohio slowed down in his minivan for a bunch of deer that were booking it full bore across the rode ahead of him. He was still going around 35 when he hit the pack of Coyotes that were chasing them.

thats sig worthy right there xD




doesn't look to bad.

you could run 2 self tapping screws in the valence to hold it up and rattle can the bumper is you want it to just look better without having to place the bumper.

or you could run up to certifit and get a full 01-05 bumper setup. either chrome or painted. i think the total for the bumper, valence, fogs, and the 2 brackets and 2 supports is like $250.
