    I've been on the forums for a while now and in November i bought a 2004 sequoia. It came with very tasteful mods , Fabtech coilovers, rear lift, borla exhaust, aftermarket headers, AEM intake , JET performance MAF sensor, 20" wheels and micket thompson mud terrain tires, hella 5" round baja lights.

    as soon as i got it i got rid of the 20" wheels and went with 17" wheels and nitto terra grapplers 33s, got rid of the hella lights for a light bar in bumper and added 2 led fogs on top of the bumper.

    so far its been an amazing suv, on and off road as youll see in the pictures. I gave the sequoia the nickname SILVERBACK because its a beast off road.

    the led bar was simple to mount, simply remove the bumper, make L brakcets and mount it

    Very cool
    Are you using any flat rubber between the stock mount location and the steel touching the truck?

    You could use something as thin as a bicycle tube and cut to fit. I have that at some mounting points and used thicker dense rubber in places I needed leveled out. Bunch of fleamarkets in Fla? Maybe find it at the flea. If not I have some leftover I can send. It's basically a mat I bought at a flea market and cut up.

    Oh also a motorcycle tube. They are thicker than a bicycle tube.

    IMG-20170211-WA0057.jpeg A while back I contacted Black Oak LED, great guy and also a veteran. I'm really big on helping out veteran own business so I bought 2 pod led flood lights. And finally decided to install them this weekend.

    Here is the led pod with the black Oak led protective amber cover

    Seriously ready for camping season now.

    How did you mount your light pods in the factory fog light position?
