Update: the Sequoia rack and pinion took a crap on me the other day. It's in the shop getting fixed up and then the new front suspension will be installed on July 1st. Looking forward to posting up some more pics.

Replaced the stock foglight with Morimoto LED Fogs. They not only add to the black out look I'm going for, but to be honest even without upgraded led lighting the output is great. But I do need to replace the stock headlight bulbs with LED's. Here is the in process look of the lights.View attachment 1844

Alrighty, I have an update. First of all, the sliders are installed and look dang sexy! Secondly, I finally have my grille back on again. Lastly, I just ordered a different suspension setup for the front of the Sequoia. I figure it'll do two things, first of all it should help mellow the ride a little up front, and secondly it will give me some adjustability so that I can level the truck out. I don't like the "squat" look in the rear. More on that upgrade once it arrives and I do the swap. But here's what y'all want to see....the pics!

Let me know your thoughts, and also I'd love input in terms of a rooftop rack. I know about the Gobi, and it looks nice but the wait time is crazy.
OMG! I LOVE what you did with the grille! I've got to do this, too!

Update! Removed the stock front skid and replaced it with the RCI skid. This thing is stout and definitely an upgrade from the stock thin piece. Easy bolt on, and it just looks nice! Also....upgraded something else that you can see in one of the photos. I’ll share more pics of that upgrade tomorrow. .

Thought I'd share a bit about my latest adventure. We have owned the Sequoia since new, and have loved every minute of it. It was my wife's daily for all of 9 years, until last year we bought her a 2019 Volvo XC90. Still fits the family, but smaller for her to drive everyday. The Sequoia has been chillin' in the garage and we use it for longer trips but that was about it. I was going to purchase a 1973 BMW 2002 as a "fun car" but decided that it would be a pain to store in the winter and wouldn't get used that often.

So my plan was hatched. Start modding the Sequoia for ME! Currently I have paint on the way to black out the grill, black mirror caps, door handles, etc. to give it the blacked out look. I am in the process of deciding on a lift for it and want to run 35's.

I'm attaching a pic of the first mod I've done! I decided to go with these headlights, because they were inexpensive and honestly I didn't mind the look of the stock lights. Just didn't want all the chrome.

It appears that you have the headlight washers. Did they connect to these headlight housings easily, or did you have to do a lot of work? I think this is the next mod I want to do, before even doing the mirror caps, door handles and rear license plate bracket.

The headlights were a direct replacement with no troubles. I love the look, and the price is nice too. Once you get them post up pics!

Oh, I like that RCI skid. It has a removable cover to access the oil filter...I did two oil changes since the 2 year mark of the Toyota service plan expired. I did one without a lift which required jack stands and one with my 3/2 level which was easy to slide under to access everything. But that OEM skid sucks because you have to remove the dang thing to get at the filter.

Yes, and it is much more stout. Taking the stock one off isn't that big of a pain, it's just unnecessary time and labor.
