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

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
