    As the title says, i'm "Truckless" for this week. :grrrrrr: Deer jumped out of a ditch as I was driving by and creamed me. I am very fortunate that I was not wearing glass and injured, as the initial impact was my window which stayed 100% in tact. After destroying my mirror, He/she/it/whatever rotated around, bounced off the half-door, leaving it dented, and slammed into the box.

    They make parts everyday, and i'm just happy it wasn't worse than it was!

    lol the turkey probably looked like a high speed pillow fight in the mirror! Glad your ok and the truck isn't worse off. I had a dear hit my ds 1/4 panel in a 1987 Suzuki samurai while running 60mph. Talk about needing to change your pants. Little truck turned sideways and hit a pot hole rendering my view as a sky, dirt, sky, dirt point o view. Yeah like I said, change your pants experience lol in my defense, I already needed the bathroom...

    Good visual. Like Randy Johnson when he hit that bird with a 100 mph fastball.

    I just sold my stock headlight lenses to a kid that hit a turkey. Well, actually, the guy in front of him hit it. It flew up, took out his headlight, dented the hood and shattered the windshield. He showed my pics of his truck. It was pretty bad.
