Sure hope you hit a deer and not a dear! :lol:

Sorry, couldn't resist. Also sorry you hit one of those pesky road hazards....

Post your location (where the heck is ATX?), it might help. I know a great parts guy in the PNW...

Dang... I can't imagine... I drive a road with tons of deer everytime I go fishing... makes me nervous... I guess worst case you get some very expensive venison chili! HAHAHA Just kidding by the way....

I say use the money and get an ARB bumper so if you hit on again you can just hose it off...

We went hunting west of Austin last weekend and on the way up to the ranch we saw about 30 deer on the side of the road grazing. We were lucky and none of them decided to run out in front of us.. And to let those of you that don't know I believe it is illegal to take a deer if you should hit one.

I guess i was kinda lucky because it only messed up the lower bumper cover and fog light (things i can replace/fix). I pulled the dented in part out the best i could.

BTW.. I never knew deer smelled as bad as they do.. I dont know if its brain, guts or crap thats putting off the odor but i cant seem to get rid of the smell.. Its fading or Im getting used to it..

Forgot to mention that i have a X-Runner.. I dont think the ARB bumper thing will look very good on the X :)

Try on line keystone automotive.

Im sure they will have the bumper inexpensive. They sell there parts, new, to dealers and body shops and dont charge the public a higher price either. They will deliver ups also.

Damn that sucks about the deer.

Speaking of which, I've seen probably at least 30 of them several times roaming around in the field in front of my house, in my driveway, and in my yard. The damn lady up the hill from me feeds them. So of course they flock to our house because of it. I don't know how many times I came close to hitting one just leaving my house.

No offense, dude, but the last time I was in tejas, will be the last time I was in tejas.
lol :lol: Same here, no offense to anyone who lives there, but as soon as I got there I couldn't wait to get back home.

I agree, put an ARB on the X, someone should photoshop one on just to see what it looks like.
