Did run over a deer carcass in Kentucky....luckily, a few other people had run it over too, making it flat enough to traverse over...ripped out the entire belly pan...on to VA...after getting there and checking things out....bent both lower control arms...both tie rods and somehow messed up a strut.........changed out all parts including both struts....had to use the stealership to get parts
....but after some hours of work and ANOTHER trip to the stealership for alignment........all is well.......of course that's $800 later.....I'm just thankful it wasn't worse and stealership had parts in stock so we could make it back home
All in all....another GREAT trip visiting family and enjoying turkey day
