Steelman_Built's '08 White Whale Build

Apr 23, 2017
Charlotte, NC
Guess I'll be the second official 2nd Gen build thread :D

With child number 3 coming soon we made the jump recently from '04 Tundra Double Cab to an '08 Sequoia Limited. The truck was great and 3 car seats would have fit fine in the backseat but there was no room for any additional passengers or interior cargo space. I managed to find a decent deal on this '08 Limited that's set up with quad seating so the kids are now in the 3rd row and have easy access in and out with the pass-thru second row and we have room for a passenger or two

Being a Toyota guy with several years of off-roading in my veins it's only suitable that the Sequoia would receive some choice upgrades to assist off-road and with the de-soccer mom look.

Very nice build. Just recently purchased a 2010 sequoia. And have been looking at mods. How do the 5100s feel compared to stock? Did you have to make any cuts for the wheels and tires to fit?

Good lookin ride.

I had removed the rola roof basket w extension from my v8 4runner before trading it in. Didnt like that it covered my moonroof completely. Does it cover the moonroof on our cars? Can you get some shots of how it sits on the sequoia?
