#460 of 572 Install DVD overhead console on SR5
Dec 11, 2005 (10:36 pm)
I just bought a 2006 Toyota Sequoia SR5. The salesman told me they could install a 10 inch DVD, but today I was told they are not able to do that due to the the way the middle console is installed on the top of the ceiling. It is the kind that has a few compartments for sunglasses. Does anyone know if a 7 to 10 inch DVD screen can be installed on this car (email me with a picture)? Is there another company that can do it (bay area)?

I have a 2001 Sequoia and went with the 2" levelling kit (Metal Spacer) on the front. I had the same concern with the CV angle. The cure was to add 1" spacers to lower the front differential (available from Total Chaos).
My goal was to increase travel, so I couldn't stop there. My next concern was the stock ball joint, so I replaced the upper control arm with Total Chaos arms which allow for increased travel with a much stronger ball joint. Of course the increased travel also means new Bilstein shocks and a limit strap. I fit 285/75/16 BFG KMs with minimal rub to the mud flap.... so they had to be removed and replaced with a chunk of mud flap off an 18 wheeler. I did not loose any turning radius, but there is a slight frame rub at full turn... not enough to bind up. The truck handles great on and off road.

#462 of 572 DVD/Audio Remote Control
Dec 13, 2005 (10:46 am)
My kids have lost the remote to the factory installed DVD player. I called the dealer and the remote is $130.00. Does anyone know if you can actually control the player somewhere without a remote? Are there other places to purchase this remote. I also read that the newly purchased remote may have to be programmed? I LOVE MY SEQUOIA!!

I think you need a dealer or audio installer that knows what they are doing. It's just an excuse because the dealer doesn't know what they are doing. Run away, fast! I have an '05 with the sun roof and a 15" overhead monitor, so it is definately something that can be done.

See my posted #1101 on the problem section on this forum. I posted 2 procedures: one for transponder key and one for remote.

Check out www.vizualogic.com for some other options. I have the A1000 model and have been very pleased. The replacement headrests match the leather perfectly. Installation is much less invasive and they can be taken out if you sell/trade the vehicle. A competent local car audio/video dealer should be able to do this easy!
