Any particular reason you are taking road hazard, extended warranty, Sound shield etc in this package. This must be adding 700-1200 $ (forgot actual price). This package has lots of dealer margin and actual invoice is very less so dont go for difference from MSRP. I think you can get better deal than this.
In my opinion the most cost effective and loaded package is with Alloy Wheel package and PM leather package that gives steering wheel mounted audio controls + all other bells and whistles. you cant go wrong with this package. Having that your MSRP would be around 39 k with out of door price including rebate around 34.5k. Since these options does not have lot of margin b/w MSRP and Invoice, it seems you are just saving 4.5 or 5k below MSRP but look at what options you are getting.
Unfortunately lot of dealers have extra mile option A, B, C. B/c they can make more money by showing greater discounts and earn business.
I recently bought 2005 SR5 2WD with liquicell leather, sports package, side curtain, JBL10, Side Curtain air bag, etc etc in 34750$ after rebate. MSRP 40034$.
With Toyota Sales Hub in Houston, you can get any vehicle ordered in very less time. Try buyatoyota.com and locate the vehicle with your options.
Just my 2 cents.

I will contact Richardson Toyota and see what they can do.
We are looking for 2005 Limited.
I was reading some of the horror stories in the problem section here on Edmunds, I sure hope the new ones aren't plagued with problems.
We have a 2001 that we have never had a problem with, which is why we are wanting to stick with the Sequoia. Wish us luck !

My 2005 SR5 2WD is exactly same as above +
--DVD Pre wire
--Carpet mats/trunk, Door sill protector
The price quoted to you looks good. You can add up invoice for my additional options from edmunds and see where your total adds up to your quote of 34105.35$
I gave back carpet mats/trunk mat and got 160 $ back. kept Door Sill protector which was included in this price. I like All weather mat and bought set of 4 for 60 bucks and used my 2004 4Runner rear rubber mats for Seq 3rd row. Bought a Cargo liner (59$), Cargo net (19$) too.
I really like the liquicell leather as it is more comfortable and looks awesome. My sports package includes tubular running board, rear leveling suspension and front skid plate. Though i was not really looking for this option but the only vehicle matching my other requirements had this one. It is very hard to find PM leather package and I've heard many dealers/buyers prefer new liquicell leather.
And yes the sports package includes running board and 16" styled wheels so you have to weigh in that too when comparing your quote with my purchase.
I would also suggest if you can manage to get 17" Alloy wheel for Seq. As it looks better than 16". Mine is 16" and i am still thinking if i can swap them with 17" some how.
Unfortunately i dont know any dealers in Houston area, though i have spoken to few of them but never had chance to buy from them. Although i have heard good things about houston dealers, since competition is tough most of them usually give good prices right away. My suggestion would be to negotiate on your current quote. Walk in to the dealer and ask him to print you his invoice. He should sell you one at his invoice and try to knock off some hold back. 200-300$ can be taken off if your sales man is reasonable. Even with that they will make 1500-1800$ profit.

Just want to know if I am right.
I found out from buyatoyota.com that 4x2 Sequoia SR5 in northen california comes with base model and set of options in Package A and B. You have no choice to juggle around options (until you customize it which takes months). You have to select either one of them.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
