    Ahh totally makes sense. Thanks for letting me know. I called a shop and seems to be about $300 for them to do the rear springs.. seem high, but those rear coils are pretty intense. When I put the spacers in last time I had to use a come along to ratchet them back into place.. anywho, good looking. Hoping to install my front coils this weekend and inch closer to having my own lifted tree.

    Cheers! :cheers:

    Nice !!! I was thinking about one of those but I was able to get my full size spare under the vehicle, although it’s smaller than what you’re running. I may eventually do what you did because it does hang low.

    That is a cool vehicle! I have always thought the Sequoia is a bit plain stock, but looks great modified. Love yours!

    The grille is still on stop sale, so we can't order them just yet. Toyota has not added a listing that I can find for the side steps.

    2020 TRD Pro Sequoia grill!!! :yes:

    There's a trim piece that goes along the top that I have on order, so it'll look ghetto for a couple days, but I effing love it!

    Took all of 15 minutes to R & R. Ez mode

    Close up of grill trim, I like the blue metal flake contrast with the black

    i thought about posting this in the 2nd Gen forum once i get the top trim piece installed

    the problem i see is that the grille on the 2nd gen Tundra is slightly taller, and the bumper is shaped slightly different. so converting a 2nd gen tundra with this grille might also require living with a gap between the bottom of the grill and the bumper, or also converting to a Sequoia bumper... :sawzall:
