hah, ran one over eh? yeah, i did the same thing in the 98...at about 80 with about 2 seconds warning. Didn't even have time to slow down. Freshly hit by the semi 4 seconds in front of me. So when i hit it.....umm...blood...everywhere. When I took a look down there, i had sizzling deer meat on my exhaust. smelled like i was grilling venison.

sure did a nice number to my floor tho..bent it up and in. broke a hanger, bent my oil pan and then i seemed to have a meaty underside

good job on the fix, loooks excellent. glad i didn't suffer that kinda damage.
