JK: 1 BAMBI: 0

Well, I was less than a mile from home about 6:45AM this morning, just before Sun-up, and a doe zipped out *RIGHT* in front of me. I was doing about 60, and she glanced off. I think the LF tow-hook part of the bumper caught her pretty square in the LR hind-quarter.
It made the bumper cover ugly, busted out the LF fog lamp, busted the lens out of the LF side marker, and cracked the LF flare/flare support.

Could have been much worse, but it still pisses me off.

Anyone got a cheap bumper cover/LF flare/Support in the neighborhood? I'm just SW of Atlanta in the Newnan/Griffin area.

I guess I was thinking of it more in terms of how bad it would have been in any other type of vehicle.
A deer strike at 50-60MPH in anything else would have likely caused major damage, whereas this is purely superficial. A fender flare and support, and it's almost gone. new bumper cover (I'll probably just wait and get a different bumper now), and it's totally unnoticeable.

Nope....Bambi was a doe in this case. If it had horns, I would have stopped and dragged it home for my neighbor to mount, LOL!

a deer jumped out on me and hit my jeep.. knocked my front and rear fender flares off along with breaking my license plate holder.. but bad news for the deer it hit my rear LOD bumper cut its ass end up and killed it =)

it did no damage to the fender flares.. but break them off.. had to go buy new clips to hold the flares on.. and they cost a pretty penny.. i got a discount since i know someone who works at the dealership.. i got them for 3.90 a clip instead of 4.80 a clip... so yea.. i spent over $100 just to fix it..

07 2dr Rubicon - Teraflex 6" LA - 37 KM2's - LoD rear bumper - Rockhard front stubby - Poison Spyder Flares - etc.

upcoming: Front D60, 40's, beadlocks.
