Well, i never thought it would happen to me but going down the highway sunday before last i hit a deer. :VHOT: I was going 65 and slowed down to 40 at the time i hit it. Thankfully i had a grille guard so i was able to keep driving the truck. Still am now because the stupid insurance guy hasn't called back yet. Anyway, the grille, hood, bumper, left fender, and grille guard need to be replaced to the tune of $4200! I'm going to get one of the big black one-piece grille guard/bumper and since i need a new hood, i was thinking of getting an srt-10 hood. Do you guys think this type of hood would look goofy on a 2500 w/ this type of grille guard? Thanks for any input.

Had an altercation with Bambi's mother myself, sounds like you hit hard. One word on adding a push bar/bull bar is make sure it's heavy enough not to fold back on your vehicle and do even more damage than the deer would of itself. The other thing I have seen is chassis being bent by the impact, if your bars are bolted to your frame rails it can transfer the energy of the impact and total your chassis.
It's a real bummer when it happen's and you don't even get the meat! :rck:

My theory is Darwin at work.
The one's that keep off the roads survive and live to hunted or just live there happy little lives out. Around here there pretty much vermin anyway.

Also: the Ram is more important than one stupid Bambi which then became a candidate for "Darwin Awards" as rtes stated. :gr_patrio

Yeah, you should have jumped out and gutted it. Hate to see all that good venison go to waste.

maybe i would have showed a little sympathy if this retarded deer didn't make me fork over a $500 deductible. every time i look at my truck it makes me want to get a deer hunting liscense even more. i should probably wash my truck though. i hope the coyotes enjoyed the meat. :D

Equally as pathetic, the deer probably did not think to apologize for not yielding the right of way and causing all the damage in the first place.
