That sounds familiar.. I hit a huge suicidal raccoon doing about 60- 65 mph..

Cracked the hell out of my lower bumper, broke 3 out of 4 plastic internal supports, and the tow hook cover was never to be seen again (and I looked for quite a while)..

My cheapskate ins. company wanted to put some Chinese bumper cover on there so I just took the money and bought the internal supports and a factory front lip spoiler to cover the cracks and the tow hook cover, then I got that painted the same time I did my rear chrome.

I dropped that company and now I have a 250 dollar deductible instead of $500 for collision, but same premiums..
