    I have my 2015 sequoia that I acquired about 3 weeks ago and I am really enjoying it. So much so I have committed the large investment and up upgraded the wheels and tires while the old ones were in perfect condition.... I think I started a build

    First day home

    How she sits currently


    Maxpider all weather mats
    All 3 rows. Very happy with them. Like them more than the weather techs I had in my xterra.

    Tundra TRD shifter knob

    Added p3 controller for my move to Texas that happened about a month ago(July).


    Tundra trd rims with Nitto terra grappler g2 285/75r18 (34.8x11.2 inches)

    Hopefully more to come soon...

    Welcome and it's great to have our first second gen Tree. I also have a tree with no name.

    Thank you Jim. The first, I feel special. Hopefully I can do the forum proud. I will tell the wife I must build for the forum!

    Hi racecare,

    I have only added a trd shift knob. I've been pretty busy, in the midst of moving to Texas from California. Hoping to get the suspension started and completed by the end of the year.


    Thanks for checking in. And I will definitely keep everyone updated on the suspension. Doing a lot a research and making calls.

    Put the beast to work last month when I moved from California to Texas. Little over 1300 miles in 2 days.

    Added p3 controller for towing an 18foot trailer with 2 motorcycles and a trike(buried in there somewhere).

    Truck handled it great. suspension not so much (really bad squatting). Thought it might have been loaded a little weird but my recent trip to the east coast with just the trunk filled and noticeable squatting confirms it needs stiffer springs which equates to all new suspension.... of your going to do it do it right.

    Hello, I’m new to the forum and I just picked up a 2013 SR5. I’m wondering if you had to do anything in order to fit the 285/75R18 tires. I love the build by the way! Thanks in advance.

    Hi chad,

    I only had to bend( slightly) the stock skid because the tread blocks caught at full lock. But, do note I switch from stock to tundra trd rims which changed my back spacing 30mm.

    Glad you like the build. I will be collecting suspension parts soon, so stay tuned.
