Picked up a 2010 Sequoia Platinum a couple years ago cause my 2011 FJ Cruiser wasn't going to be up to the task of towing my new 30ft camper. Sequoia was bone stock and came with the TRD 22" chrome wheels. I got some 18" MB Wheels wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler G2's, for towing since you cant find a high ply rated 22" tire. I added a TRD intake and a Corsa cat back exhaust. I also plasti dipped the grill and mirrors black (not a fan of all the chrome).

My FJ Cruiser that i bought new and built up only to sell and pick up a great 1 owner used Sequoia.

The day I picked up the Sequoia

As she sits now. Used for towing, off road adventures, and long road trips.FB_IMG_1523582901277.jpg FB_IMG_1523582352737.jpg 20180412_172331.jpg FB_IMG_1523582728896.jpg FB_IMG_1523582749843.jpg FB_IMG_1523582774463.jpg FB_IMG_1523582789140.jpg FB_IMG_1523568809661.jpg

Nice ride man! I like the grille and mirrors.. Ive been thinking of getting rid of the chrome as well. How was the plasti-dip process? Pretty easy? We also pull an avenger with ours!

Plasti-dip is nice and easy to do, also very durable. I painted the entire roof of my FJ with it too. Holds up to car washes and everything. If you happen to get a rock chip, just spray over that area to touch it up and you're good to go.

Just replaced my headlight assembly with a black housing, smoked lens assembly and it changed the front end a lot. Also added switchback LED DRL/turn signals, LED headlight bulbs and LED fog light bulbs. To accommodate the LED turn signal I had to do the turn signal relay modification to prevent hyperflash. 20180419_141034.jpg 20180419_170026.jpg 20180419_172847.jpg 20180419_175140.jpg 20180419_180245.jpg

What LED turn signal relay modification is that? Where can I find out how to do that to mine?

Also, do you have a link to those headlight housings? I also have the headlamp washers and need good blacked-out OEM style headlamps that will allow me to mount the headlamp washers to them.

Would love to see the write up for the signal relay modification. I’ve got hyper flash, but would prefer not to splice my stock wires. So I’ve just been rolling with the hyper flash and annoying everyone. Haha
