Did you end up running wheel spacers with the rockwarrior wheels? My rear UPC arm contacted the stick on weights. I'm going to try hammer weights, but am concerned about the lack of clearance.
No wheel spacers. I’ve had these Rock Warriors on my Sequoia for 3 or more years without issue. But I will admit, when I first bought these wheels I heard there was a tight fit. But luckily I haven’t experienced any mishaps. Knock on wood.

Glad I found this thread and have similar tree - old man tan with rock warrior rims, TRD super charger, ARB in front, custom sliders and rear.

Now it’s time for suspension upgrade. Want to lift 2.5” - 3.0” to fit 35” tires. Was thinking about Bilstein 6112 for the front but still not sure about rear set up? Would welcome suggestions.

Thanks

Just joined this forum when I was getting info on the secondary air intake sy failures.
I have a 2012 Toyota Sequoia SR5. I am really liking what everyone is doing with the front bumper and grill.
Makes me want to change things up on my Sequoia.

Great thread! I'm going to do Dobinsons rear coils for sure. I tow a 31' Airstream with mine. I have Airlift 1000 Airbags, but I feel like my springs are worn out. Would worn out springs cause the rear wheels to be a little off camber? I am super interested in the side steps you're running. Nice rig!

Thank you. I’m also considering switching to Dobinson suspension. I’ve been speaking with a local rep and am working on different options. In regards to the ICI steps, make sure you order steps for the Tundra double cab, not the crew cab. The only downside is the last mount on both sides can’t be used without some rigging (which I haven’t done), because that bolt location is different. Regardless, they been sturdy over a couple years of use.

Dobinson is also offering different reasonably priced suspension options if you don’t want spacers. They offer a different variety of spring tension for the height you may be looking for. I may actually be switching to Dobinson.

Hi MoSequoia, joining in late. Question for you as it sounds like your an experienced Sequoia owner. Grille replacement on these Sequoias are pretty simple? I pick mine up tomorrow and purchased the 2020 TRD Pro grille to swap out but cannot find any youtube videos online. TONs of tundra videos but their hood/grille setup is different.

It was just removal of bolts, then it came off. My new grill didn’t have a rubber gasket (goes between the grill and the hood where they connect) on it, so instead of trying to reuse the old one from my Sequoia grill, I bought a new one. After putting that on, I installed the new grill and reinstalled the bolts.

What I am running in to after removing the bolts is the Radiator grille assembly seems to be really stuck and I’m not sure if I should force it or not.
