    If you like your ride quality and handling, just get bags.

    2005 Tundra novice build - "The Rez"

    Sounds to me like you need adjustable shocks. What's good on the street will be harsh on the trails. What's good on the trails will be soft on the street. Precisely the reason I have adjustability on all four corners on my DD.

    Definitely not. When I modified my OEM rack, the 80/20 bars were untapped. 13 bars. That's 52 holes 1" deep by hand. I was scared to use a drill. That took awhile.

    Yep. And I thought my tapping days were done. 32 holes I had to tap. By hand. Not fun.

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    It all worked out in the end. Good thing I gave myself extra time. Yet here I am, at the 11th hour, rushing to get my setup in order. 😒 Considering there was no consistency in the thread depths, it looks like tapping of the holes was a manual operation with little emphasis on quality...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    I'm out of time to deal with TNuts. I'm T-4 days before hitting the road. The bars were threaded per the order, but not deep enough to torque the bolts to the rails. I have to deepen the threads another 1/4-3/8" to fully seat the bolts. Paint is definitely on the list. I don't mind the bare...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    Updated original post. Don't have decent shot of the solar panel because I'm short and I don't have a ladder. I still have to mount the other 8 bars anyway. On top of losing my order and taking 4 weeks to send me my crossbars with no restitution, TNuts sent only 3 of 11 bars with the right...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    Thanks! It worked out great. The lower "C" channel aligns with the rail slots perfectly for the right mounting height for a minimal profile. It is <1/4" higher than when it was mounted on my OEM rack. This time, no more universal feet to deal with and it's much easier to manipulate. 4...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    MODIFICATION: OCD Roof Rack and Solar Panel GOAL: Peace of mind when ski bumming it camping during the winter months. PURPOSE: Now that my heater is fully functional, I decided a solar panel would probably be a good idea to help the battery along when I bum around during the winter months...

    Funny you mention that because I was thinking about that last night. Gonna seal up the fresh air intake and reroute the air pickup line. 👍

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    MODIFICATION: Portable 12V Diesel Heater (cont.) Since the component installation is all but complete, it was time to address wiring. The kit came with an excess amount of wiring. To house it all in the box would be messy. I broke apart the wiring loom on the heater side to trace the...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    MODIFICATION: Portable 12V Diesel Heater (cont.) Heater placed. Tank placed. On the pic below, you can see the bolts that support the "L" tray and the fuel tank. Time for plumbing. Clearances are tight below the heater. As a result, I had to trim off ~2" from the exhaust pipe to make it...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    MODIFICATION: Portable 12V Diesel Heater GOAL: Portable heater to take the edge off winter camping and make ski bumming result in less shrinkage. PURPOSE: I love to camp in the winter. Not to mention bum it around the mountain ski resorts. However, as a SoCal resident, my preferred...

    $200 5KW Portable Diesel Air Heater

    Well, I dun f-ed up. I cut the wiring to the fuel pump to remove the excess so my package work is clean. To my surprise, both wires are colored the same, white with green stripe. On the heater side, both brown. I've read the schematic in the manual and one is supposed to be positive, the...

    If you use Facebook, join the Toyota Sequoia Off Road group. Lots if helpful lads in there that can also answer questions. There's also SequoiaForums, but it's not as active as TSOR. 03s and up have the factory included option to lock the transfer case anytime in 4wd. Only 01-02 were...

    2002 Sequoia Limited 4WD

    When I still had OEM spindles, LBJs, and tie rods, 3deg caster was fine. In fact, I preferred 2.6-3.1deg of caster. It felt more stable. Can't really speak about return to center since I never really paid attention to it. When I upgraded to the Solo kit, it changed my suspension geometry a...

    2005 Tundra novice build - "The Rez"

    Soly hits! That's a game changer. And a decent price point. Pays for itself on the third use. What size tire have you used the kit on? Thanks!
