Built Ford Tough, even against bears.
 
So i was on my way home from my girlfriends house. Drivin down a back road doing about 40-45. All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye i see a black figure hunched over running across the road. It was a god damn bear. I downshifted as fast as i could and hit it on my left front. Luckily i had a bullbar on the front of the truck and the bears face smashed into it. I got out and checked to see if the thing was alive then checked the truck. Not a scratch on the truck but blood over the bumper and now i need a new bullbar. those damn ford rangers are built tough

So I'm guessing the bear isnt okay lol. And we all know if that was a chebby it would need to be taken on a rollback.

My old "chebby" had a tough ass bumper. I hit a deer doin around 50 and it didn't even put a freakin dent in it.

that blows i saw a kid hit a deer in a 350z at 60mph and nothing wrong with the car, just a scratch the size of your thumbnail. the car took the deer out from the legs and it flew over the car.
