Deer vs grill

6 posts in this topic

A deer decided to challenge the grill of my 2002 F150 in a contact sport. The grill lost. I've checked on the web and the prices are $175 to $225. Can I trust the on line shops or should I go to a dealer?

I would check with some local auto recyclers.

Yes, what Airjer said above or you could also try Certi-Fit in Vadnais Heights for a good as OEM, but not the full price replacement.

Their on-line catilog has them ranging from about $37-$73, depending on which one you have.

Good luck

Thanks for the info. It's close to my house and it sure beat the roulette of on line buying.

Be careful with Sorta-Fit, I am Certi-Fit, smile their prices are real cheap but you get what you paid for. Some parts do not fit right. I once bought a bumper for a Honda Civic that took three people at the same time to install it on the car. The bumper looked correct but when you examined it real close the angles of the bumper was wrong. So six hands had to force spread the bumper install on the car. Then on my next Civic I bought an OEM one and it went in like butter.

Yep! You want to make sure it is the right on when buying it.

They will let you open it and bring it out to your truck or car to make sure it is right.

But once it is installed, you own it wink.

It is not OEM stuff, but I have bought several things now and have not had an issue. They where outside mirrors, tail light lenses, headlight lenses and chrome side strips. I also know many people who buy body panels from them and they have worked out great.

Make sure it is what you want before it is purchased.

Plus, all my experiences are with domestic vehicle parts, not imports.

That may be the key wink

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
