    I'm sorry to hear about your sweet new aftermarket aftermarket bumper. Should probably get a winch & some lights to go with it as well ;)

    Kidding aside, glad no injuries and that does look like quite a hit!

    Came with all the lane departure and that stuff, electric tail gate lock, fog lights, 20s, sprayed on bed liner, tint, cat protector, and that’s about it??:)
    Man so sad for you and your truck!! Fricken deer cause lots of damage to crops, vehicles, and humans when they get hit!! Glad everyone was alright. Hope they can fix it so it is not noticeable!! All the luck sent your way!!!:)

    I’m sorry this happened to you. That sound and feeling is sickening. Three deer have hit me so far. :mad:

    My wife wants me to put a Ranch Hand on the front of my truck but I keep putting it off because the one deer rolled down the side of my truck and pooped on my door.

    Sorry for the damage. Pretty impressive that there wasn’t more damage. Small deer?

    Taking the truck back to factory or aftermarket?

    Hit a deer over the summer, and although it didn't cause near as much damage as yours did, I used it as an excuse to upgrade to a C4 bumper. RIP to the deer that made my truck look better.

    Sorry to hear about this. It sucks that a deer that can cause this much damage. Hope you get her fixed good as new. I would definitely upgrade the bumper so it's better protected.

    That is a great i-deer!
    I maybe I can create a go fund me or take my comedy show on the road to pay for the repairs? But seriously if anybody has any bumper upgrades that are close to factory with more protection please chime in

    Nice. I’m not into the big 400 lb + bumpers either.

    Damn sorry man that sucks :(

    I know a guy who bought a brand new Golf GTi and on the way home with his fancy new ride he hit a deer straight on... He was so upset. The front end of his car was demolished.

    After I hit a deer in my new at the time 3/4 ton, I used the insurance money to put a ranchhand bumper on the truck instead of going back to stock. Up north there were A LOT of deer. I hit several a year, the schedule 40 4in pipe bumper ate them up. I'd toss them in the back and then we'd eat them up lol

    In a low deer populated area I understand going back to stock.
