I had a stupid freaking deer jump out and decide to play speed bump :/ Rather than be a normal dear and come intersecting to the road this one decided it would be cool to come at like a 45* angle and her first jump was right in the middle of the road and into my bumper with her head/neck/chest and possibly under the tires from there :/ I saw her just in time to slam the breaks and pry hit her at 25 instead of 35/40 I was going originally. Thank god it wasnt a buck of i would need a bumper head light fog light and grill more than likely

No kidding, we got moose up here to watch out for not so much deer.

Any way you nail a moose, your front ends finished so ha

So does this mean you are getting a brand new white sport bumper? eh eh

I think so. Im still on the fence. I foudn an unpainted one for 180 shipped to my door, but Id also have to find the foglights, bumper support and brackets... I think it might be easier to just get a chrome one and have it stripped and painted

So listen to this.
Dealer calls me says my hooks are in but they won't fit.

I tried to explain to him it can be done with some minor alteration to the front bumper black plug piece.

Hes like "nope they won't fit, we can give you your money back"

So I told him, keep them ill be there friday morning to pick them up and thats it.

He didn't sound to happy when he got off the phone, I love how parts guys think they know everything. Well they know what a manual can tell them I guess right???

Awesome work man
Thanks. After reading your last post about the dealer insisting that they won't fit I really hope that on the 11's they did not relocate the bolt locations or something stupid like that. Let us know that all is well with the fit on the 11's.
