Deer 0 Jeep 1 1/2
I decided I couldn't afford to drive the Ford to work anymore so I got my Jeep out and fixed the lights today and decided to drive it to work. All went fairly well needs an alignment but well. Coming home tonight I hit a small herd of deer. There were at least 4 2 turned and ran right into my jeep. Now my Jeep is a bit trying to drive without any problems but running over a deer while hitting another just about makes controling the jeep an after thought. I get it to the side and turned around. Went back and to drag the kicking deer out of the roadway. Although I saw second one spin and go down she was gone when I got back, blood all over, but one. The second was laying in the middle of the road. Long story short 1 fender obliterated and of wll things while I was waiting for the SD to arrive, my clutch throw out bearing started making death whines.
Bent the tie rod and I have serious tow in now.
I am trying to decide weather to turn it into inshurance or not.
Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.
