Default I Miss My Ram!! Long post

About 10 days ago I had the misfortune to hit a very large Whitetail Buck with the right front corner of my RamIt was a dark rainy morning about 6am. I saw him and swerved left as no other cars were coming and he turned at the same time to the right.

. All I saw was horns and eyeballs and then the dreaded thunk as his horns and head hit my rt headlight and fender and then another thunk as some part of him hit the rt side of my truck. I remember saying, "oh shit,my truck" as braked to a stop. I pulled over and got out to look for the bastard that just ruined my day. I had a flashlight in my left hand and my 45 Kimber in my right hand with thoughts of finishing him off. I was wandering around some persons front yard with a flashlight and a hand gun and suddenly thought to myself this is not a good idea so I went back to my truck to check the damage. The headlight was still working but punched in a bit and there was a large dent in the lower passenger side door. Sorry, no pics.That's all I could see in the dark. No deer could be found so I drove on to work. To make a long story short I called my insurance and then the collision shop. I took it to the autobody shop and they gave me a loaner car which I do appreciate. However, after driving my 2012 Laramie for 2 years and then getting in a Chevy Malibu with no comfort options but a heater I felt so out place. I have a hard time getting in and out of it with my RA, there is no heated steering wheel, no heated seats, no climate control, no overhead lighting and it's so noisy on the road I can't hear the radio. And it snowed and was down to 23 degrees the 1st morning I had to drive it to work. Oh and no remote start so I had to get in a cold car to go to work in. I know I'm spoiled but I WANT MY RAM BACK! BTW the estimate was $2400 bucks and I may get it back next Monday. They are detailing it also and I had them remove the Ram 1500 off both sides. Never did like them. Did I say I WANT MY RAM BACK?

Rant over,

Jim

This sucks Jim. At least she isn't totaled. Nice choice of pistol by the way. I have two of them!

Agree the lights do suck but this guy came out between two pine trees about 10 feet off the berm of the road and it happened so fast I didn't hit the brakes until after he hit me. no warning at all. LIGHTS DO SUCK THO

I've hit many deer but never with my Ram. One thing for sure, they are very tough and very tasty. I hit one once with a Mazda Protoge at 70 mph, almost totaled the car. A big 8 pointer barely had a scratch, all I had for a weapon was a large MagLite , I ran that sob down and smashed his head in with the flash lite, hit him so hard that I broke his horns off. He was very tasty! So the Malibu is not a world beater?

Well been there and done that, hit one out west in Alberta with a very large olds cutlass. Killed him instantly as he took out the right headlight and pushed the fender into the drivers door. I remember that same things, no time to brake it just appeared in front of me with a huge set of antlers. Glad your okay it certainly does make for a bad day.
