I hit a buck last July in Telluride, CO with my wife’s ‘18 grand cherokee at 50mph. Launched the buck over the road and into grass. Removed the damaged bumper, pulled all the broken pieces behind the front fascia/bumper, limped it back to our dispersed camping spot, disassembled everything, reassembled with zip ties and duct tape, hooked the camper up and drove it home 8hrs. $13k damage. None of the advanced safety features kicked in as the buck darted from the woods on my right. Luckily wife and the 2dogs were not hurt which is also why I like driving my giant truck on trips because not much is making it over my hood and into the windshield.

I will be sticking with the stock bumper on my Outer banks I want the fog lights. I will be adding pod lights and rock crawler lighting too.
