    O' deer

    Hit a deer at over 75 MPH this morning. I was able to drive the trooper home. Think its time for Dr. Smash to make me a custome bumper & grill.

    I think so too. The NHP that filled the report though i was only going about 50 judging by the damage. He was was also shocked that I drove it home. Looks like all I will need is a new A/C condenser, radiator, engine fan & fan hub. Bumper, grill, foward most crossmember and 2 headlight assemblies.

    Glad you're ok...

    Got me thinking.. I've got an ARB bumper that should have no problem with a deer.. But what the damn airbags knock me out?
    No good story was ever started with....Well we were drinking milk and.........

    Glad to hear that you weren't hurt, Shawn! Hope the Trooper's facelift works out okay, too... that's one tough truck (sorry, Chevy!).

    Glad to hear you are okay. I was about 10 vehicles back when they stopped traffic. That was a tough little deer.

    Havent decided on installing a used orgnial bumper or having a custom bumber made. Here is the repair progress. My friend came over and used his winch to pull the front end out in 3 places.

    125.00 for a new radiator
    84.00 for used fan clutch & fan hub.
    12.00 for new power steering pump pully.

    Now she is running, driving and street legal.

    Good ol cheep ass Troopers!
