DutchmansLJ I say get it fixed with frame and engine work done if any damage then just spend the rest on aftermarket flatty fenders, a used front grill from a junk yard get it painted and a nice stinger bumper with reenforced bars so next time u hit one itll just slam it down to the ground, from what i read of mine those deer just tipped right over and got run over.

just an option to getting a stock jeep again maybe get that payoff to put mods on u wanted

It always makes me happy when I see the turkey vultures circling over the road since there is a good chance they are getting ready to swoop down on some dead deer. Annoying little suicidal bastards.
My daughter was driving along, saw the herd of 5 or 6, slowed down to be safe and the buck ran into her driver side door. Morons.
She said ND and MN, 50/50 shot.

Haha yeah, seem to be able to catch them out of season with the bumper... but once you're fixing to shoot them they wise up (sort of).

JDsDream I'm glad to hear that you are okay. ALL animals are unpredictable and just being diligent does not always mean that you can avoid this kind of situation. If you live in an area with a healthy population of deer and have not come in contact with them yet, consider yourself lucky.

The pass fender and hood look fine to me. Personally I'd be asking for a check. Aftermarket fenders are cheap in comparison to OEM, metalcloak, rokmen, poison spyder are all in the 700$ range, new Savvy bumper 330$, new grill and paint maybe 500 bucks. Hood looks fine to me, better looking than my hood.

All that less than 2k.

Ask them for a bigger front bumper to greet the next deer too.

Body work is expensive, and likewise I wouldn't care about the price if I'm not paying it -- as long as the best shop in town is doing the work.

Riiiight because every single accident is avoidable right? Sometimes sh*t happens even when you are driving safe and paying attention. And if deer are so smart why are they running in front of moving cars? They can hear a twig snap or smell a hunter's fart from a quarter mile away but they can't avoid a moving car?

atleast it was a pole and not a person. I remember when i had my old ranger, travelling the may long weekend to our party campsite and ended up slowed to a crawl while 2 huge mooses were trotting slow on the shoulder right next to us for several minutes. We gave them all the leadway they required without incident and appreciation and awe.

wranglerbob1 Had one run into side of my pick up, hit another 4 in PA over the years then on the first day of bear season hit a bear around 5 miles from the hunting camp. Lived in Canada for 4 years and could not imagine hitting a Moose.
Glad your OK though. Jerky and back straps?

I wish they jumped in front of my bullets more often so I don't have to go hungry for dinner.

Also, deer aren't the smartest animal in god's shed.

Totally agree with Atthehop: I live in an area heavily populated by wildlife, moose, deer, bears so really drivers need to be extra careful, and based on OP pictures, looks very woodland area to me... Unless he may of been distracted...and not paying attention to his surroundings. But of course we'll never know.

Well Dude ....... I take offense to you insinuating that I am stupid. Bite Me.

But WAIT ........ I guess I should have seen the one that jumped into my passenger door.

With all do respect, deer ARE dumb. I don't know about your neck of the woods, but up here in New England, it's not uncommon for a deer to run head long into the side of your vehicle.
I see a deer and assume there are more behind them. Never hit one. That being said, I've been a passenger in a vehicle that was literally broadsided by a deer.....

s14sh3r I've hit 7 deer and dodged countless. 2 of the deer ran into the side of the truck I was driving. I never saw them until I heard the bang and looked in the mirror and saw them.The roads I drive are often pretty elevated with no shoulder to speak of, with heavy woods on either side. You don't see them until they actually jump out on the road. By then, it's often too late. There have been several people in the area who have had worse accidents, even some fatal ones, from trying to dodge a deer. Vehicles are replaceable, you aren't. Glad you're ok.
05-05-2013 11:18 AM
krisbman I agree that deer are not stupid but sometimes its unavoidable. You can be alert and aware yet they jump out in front of you and often times double back. You shouldnt read the guy the riot act.

05-05-2013 09:51 AM
Steve305 You got the third one. That's what usually happens. Any time I see a deer cross the road, I always look to the area it came from because I know there will usually be another one following behind. I actually had one run into the side of a vehicle a few months ago. They ain't real smart about crossing the roadways. Glad you're OK ... that sheet metal is easier to fix than skin & bones.

To me, it doesn't look like your bumper is fine. Call up insurance and have that sucker replaced with something bigger along with the rest of the front of your jeep.

Gold Miner Sorry to see that. I hit a Deer with mine years ago but fared a little better than that thankfully. $2100 for mine but it was barely noticeable and it still wears most of the minor scars. I just cashed, bought a new windshield, and made a bunch of car payments with it back then.
Yours will need some work. Glad you're ok!
