JeepJitters Not yet! Got home around 7:00pm last evening. Exhausted from the heat and the trip. It was very nice meeting you too! He is going to sand it down and spray it like he did his grill. Hope to have it bolted on by the weekend! Thanks again!! Glad it worked out the way it did!

My state would be broke tomorrow!
That's correct. What usually happens is the damage is covered by your insurance company under comprehensive (fire, theft, vandalism) then the insurance company goes to the state to get the money back.

As far as taking the deer, in Upstate NY a few years back they had a stop on taking deer because Chronic Wasting Disease was found in a bunch of them. So if a deer was killed in a certain area, you couldn't get a tag and as a matter of fact, most were seized for testing. Once they had a handle on it, they stopped seizing and testing but still wouldn't issue tags.

Jeepin Bowhunter Sorry to hear man. I think even if it pops back, it won't look as new, but I am not a good body and fender guy.

I was on the way back from Missouri a half hour into a five hour drive in my 94 Sahara. Two does made a break for it and I hit the second one hard. It was at dusk in the middle of nowhere and I knew I had lost one headlight and was afraid of losing the other one and thinking she may of damaged the radiator. I told my bud we were going to try and make it into this little town a couple miles up the road. We got some really weird looks from a couple cars we met. Made it into town and get out to see the damage. She was still there impaled on the front left front bumper and tow hook. Her head had swung into the grill and took out a headlight. Since then tow hooks have been called doe hooks. So basically we picked up a doe and gave her a ride into town.

Now your thinking!

Yesterday I backed up and forgot I had my trailer on. Yea... stupid but it happened. I whipped it back to get a better angle on leaving and slightly jack knifed it. Put a cut and a deformation in the passengers side rear bumper cover. Much like you did on your front but cut some of the little deformation area thats on each side. So first thing I thought, after I realized nothing else was hurt... Time to start rethinking that rear bumper!

I like my Warn Elite front bumper by the way.

JeepJitters Can't use rubber mallet. The bumper is solid. I thought about the dent puller. And I'm really thinkin of the new bumper/winch!!

To big of a dent won't come out completely, $$75-$100 for a new one off Craigslist. People are throwing stock bumpers away

Crushed Im no body guy, but if you went to a body shop and didnt mind a hole they could maybe use one of those stud pop rivet dent pullers.

WatchThis! I have a feeling that is going to lave some white streach marks behind. Hopefully not. Sorry about your luck and good luck with it.

I worked about 8 miles out in the country at a sand plant where they separate rock and sand for concrete mix. We worked at night, overnight, and the deer were all over the place from 10pm to 3am. There were times when patrol came by and checked in on us, they always joked about how they were waiting for the deer in the road and wanted to hit one so they could make some jerky. They weren't kidding either, my one supv used to bring out all sorts of deer jerky. She and her husband went hunting for elk and whitetail or mule deer every year and she would carve it up. Nobody in my unit ever hit a deer though, it's like they knew we were hunting them with our vehicles.

Tweak I had an interesting hit. The deer jumped in the middle of a 2 lane just as I was approaching a car coming my direction. I hit the head and the car hit the rear end. Deer spun like a top and tore up the whole side of my silverado.

glad you made it out OK!
