    Hey guys,

    First post on TW yay! Sad news today. Was up in Cleghorn with some jeeping buddies in the snow/rain/mud and slid into a dirt wall turned completely in drivers side and heard a bang. My alignment is now about 15 degrees clockwise to drive straight and the truck leans right. Now I have all these malfunctions and warnings. Anyone else run into these issues after hitting a rock or messing up their alignment? I am wondering if I should go the dealer, try to get someone to check the alignment, or go through insurance.

    BSM and sonar are all not working because of the sensors being half disconnected. (I ziptied them to the plastic).

    Any tips, suggestions, thoughts on estimated costs, comments are totally welcome.

    Holy shit.

    A POS old 4X4 would have been cheaper then the repair bill you are about to see.

    God damn.

    The steering wheel/rack is out of whack. Reading the wrong angle for the vsc. You will have to get that reset.... sometimes the alignment shop can do it if they are good.

    Check your front ABS sensors............taking one of them out can cause all kinds of issues.

    Max, nice, where can you get the abs covers?

    OP, sorry to hear about this. After the shop fixes the steering and alignment, you can put a higher clearance aftermarket rear metal bumper on yourself.

    Sorry to read this OP. Seems like Cleghorn claims a lot of damage. I do it it on my enduro bike but because of the deep ruts, narrow paths and slippery condition this time of year, I won’t take my Taco, even with my skids/sliders as it’s my daily driver. Seems super easy to slide off path and into a horrible line on those trails. Happens on my bike too. The other side of the 138, trails from silverwood to big bear are more friendly. Hope you get this taken care of. My recommendation is this, call your insurance and tell them the truth, you had an accident on a trail and need to file a claim. It makes sure it all gets fixed correctly, and if you want to take the money and put it into a HC bumper/armor you can. But your truck is to nice to not fix properly, and with high repair costs these days, insurance might be your best option.

    Wow that sucks!!

    I used to go up there all the time in my old pathfinder, even though it was my daily driver I never cared about banging it up.
    The taco is a whole different thing, especially a long bed with stock tires with no bite.

    From that pic it looks like you're on your way to dove tailing and a high clearance bumper!
    .....which sliders do you have?

    It's a fun trail.... but in a stock or close to stock truck should never be on the off chutes. Cleghorn claimed my rear bumper and gave me radical vsc issues also. I have done the trail numerous times in my 17 2wd.... yes even the off chutes... anything going down and anything I thought i could make it up.

    I second the ABS sensor, it affects a lot of systems when taken out. Almost to the point where I'm tempted to find the two front ones at a scrap yard and take them wheeling with me.

    Besides that, you're in for a heck of a bill. Good luck OP
