#389 of 572 Re: Hitch & Wiring and DVD system for My 2003 Sequoia [sahd]

Yes, I am still using my TOY to towing my boat and my Jetskies. All Hitch & Wiring and my 10.4" Overhead ROSEN DVD I installed by myself. A Hitch & Wiring I paid around $180 and very easy to install. If your TOY doesn't come with the towing package then you will need addition relay. This cost about $25. You don't have to cut or cream anything. Just plug and play. This will save a lot of money. I am trying to figure out how to post pictures on this forums so anyone can view. These are exactly same as installed from TOYOTA manufacture. You can leave your email here. I will send you all details.

I've been considering bigger wheels (no bigger than 20' though) when I read these replies....
The only thing I don't understand, is WHY DO YOU HAVE AN OPTIONAL 20' WHEELS from the FACTORY?
If you go to Toyota website and start building your Sequoia, the TOYOTA itself gives you an option to have them on your car. I saw one on the dealership, when I was buying my '05 4 days ago - Enkei 20' wheels (I think the Deep 6 model) and 295/45/20 tires. So I would imagine, that Toyota has tested the wheels and suspension, prior to offering it to the market? I don't know if that option was available in '04, but it is now.
I can understand, when people go crazy and put 24-26' rims with low-profile tires, but 20' rims with some 285/50 or 295/45 leave just a tad smaller "meat" between the rim and the pavement...
Wouldn't you agree?

I totally agree. 24's or 26's are crazy because you will probably have 35 or 40 series tires on it which you can easily damage your wheels. Not only that, how in the heck will you be able to change out a tire if you get a flat? I'm not the strongest guy , but my 20's are pretty darn heavy.
#393 of 572 Sequoia All weather Mats
May 18, 2005 (3:13 pm)
Can anyone reccomend a particular brand (Toyota, Weather Tech, Husky) that makes the best rubber floor mats for the Sequoia. In particular, I would like the 2nd row mat to spand across the width of the 2nd row so the trampling kids have a place to put their muddy ski boots.
Thanks in advance...
Also, the cargo area mat are also what I'm looking at too

I have the Husky liner. It goes from the rear hatch area to the foot area of the 3rd row seat. You take the 3rd row seats out, cut the premarked cutouts for the seats, and place the mat down, putting the 3rd row back in.
As you are looking for the 2nd row, I can only say that I've owned Husky liners in the rear cargo area on all of my SUV's (total of 4 over the years) and they are great. I've also used the Carpeted Catchall Mats. These are great, as you can take them out, hose them off, hang them to dry overnight, and put them back in and they look good as new. Plus they tend to match better than just the rubber Husky mats.
I've ordered from mats4less.com muliple times. They are about the cheapest and quickest, and would recommend them again.
#395 of 572 4wd Sequoia Lift
May 29, 2005 (11:15 pm)
I have a 2006 Sequoia 4wd and want to install a lift kit on the front only, just to level the vehicle. The lift kit I like is a coil over replacement such as the Fabtech with adjustable lift. Does anyone have a kit like this installed and want to share their experiences? My biggest concern is wear to the CV joints due to increased angle. I'm assuming with auto disconnect hubs the CV joints turn even with 4wd turned off. I would also be curious as to what the maximum tire size is that I can mount to the 16x8 factory alloy wheel.
Thanks for any input, advice.
#396 of 572 Wheel Cleaner/Polish Suggestions
Jun 07, 2005 (3:35 pm)
Sorry to bother the masses with something so mundane, but I've been trying to determine what most of you are using to clean and polish the wheels on the Sequoia. I'm assuming most of the accessories and mods group are "enthusiasts" so if I've posted in the wrong spot forgive me. I've got a 2004 Limited 4x4 in black and I can get it looking pretty sharp but the wheels never seem to stay clean for any amount of time. I know the factory 17" wheels are "alloy" but does anyone have any suggestions on shining them without pitting or etching them?
#397 of 572 New 2005 Limited/LE Nav System
Jun 12, 2005 (2:11 pm)
Just got my '05 Limited LE Sequoia four days ago. Absolutely love it.
The factory installed DVD player will allow you to play the video on the Navigation screen (in addition to the drop-down second row screen) when the transmission is in Park and the Parking Brake is set. Now I can totally understand the liability reasons for inhibiting showing the DVD video while the vehicle is moving, but it does kinda stink for the front seat passenger on road trips. I'd love to hear if anyone has found a way to enable DVD video on the Nav screen when the car is out of Park and the parking brake is off.
