No just the D/S airbags...

Well in my short time in the collision world I do know there are ins company's that only require 50-60% but it is rare and a lot depends on the type of damage done! I'd seen some ins total if there was any frame damage regardless of value!

Re: Jeep is almost totaled after deer :(

Does airbag deployment constitute a total regardless of what other damage?

No, not at all. Airbags get replaced.

Re: Jeep is almost totaled after deer :(

Glad you are OK. Yes folks, once again it is the beginning of that time of year... the bucks start chasing the does across and up and down the roads and highways. Let's all be careful and lucky!

No, as another member mentioned, airbags get replaced. Back in 2007, my nearly new Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited was involved in a "sandwich" accident on a local Interstate...we were in the middle of the pack. $25K worth of damage front and back plus airbags deployed. (they worked...zero injuries) The car was completely repaired by Progressive since the then-current ACV was well above the damage cost. The only indication that it had been in an accident was on the Carfax...which is appropriate.

Well from my dealings with ins company's and what I learned in school is that some ins companies have weird rules, like for instance snowmobiles...if there is any damage to the bulkhead of a sled its automatically totaled! I know it's not apples to apples but just gives ya an idea!!

Got the initial estimate and it's $11k to fix her back to stock! Body shop is looking into what it's gonna cost to do the SRT conversion, but at least I will be getting the SRT grille and black ops carbon hood!

Re: Jeep is almost totaled after deer :(

Don't know for sure, but won't insurance only cover putting it back to stock form? I'd be surprised if they cover any of the non-OE upgrades you are wanting.

Re: Jeep is almost totaled after deer :(

So the title changed to ALMOST totaled? Any update from the OP? What did insurance say, how much damage

HOOCH, the insurance company is going to take the path of lowest cost as long as there is not a safety issue. If repair is less money than the Actual Cash Value of the vehicle, they are going to repair it. Some companies will cut corners and use non-OEM parts, however, so be vigilant. In my example above, because the Highlander was only a year old and a Hybrid which holds value, it was many, many thousands cheaper to fix back to "like new" (even with 100% Toyota parts as were used) and there was zero frame damage.
