    We test drove a Yukon and while we were super impressed with the features and aesthetics, it felt like a more delicate vehicle. The Sequoia looks and feels more robust. I will say when we were sitting in the Yukon though it felt like we were sitting in a 60 thousand dollar vehicle, the Sequoia not so much. The decision gets even more difficult when GM is doing huge cash back incentives but even with all that, we're pretty set on the Sequoia.

    I had a Suburban before I bought a Sequoia. The Suburban was all good til the mileage started piling up. Traded it in before 100K to preserve a little value and a lot of online reviews were not good about higher mileage. I drive 'em til they are done or close to it. Sequoia Platinum was my favorite vehicle even though it looked a little out of date. Ditched it at 240K. Still drove great but repairs (live in the Northeast) were going to cost more than it was worth. Wanted another but it was too expensive, looked frumpy at the time (before current upgrade). The Tundra was more up to date, looked way better and a better value overall for me. If Toyota would just update the grille and rear, and bring it up to Tundra standards, I would own another.

    Like BassBlaster said it all comes down to maintenance and value retention. Chevy and GMC vehicles don't necessarily hold their value like 4runners, Sequoias, and Tundras. Parts are cheaper, but things break more often especially when you get above 60k and out of the factory warranty. Toyota definitely could give two shits about technology. Even the 2021 model year lacks certain bells and whistles that come standard on Ford, GMC, Chevy, etc.

    Has your rack came in yet? I really want to see pictures if you wouldnt mind sharing? Did you go with light bar set up or individual? I was researching who else makes racks I only saw front runner. I think the Gobi looks better.

    12-16 week delivery lead time. Ordered it back in December-January, so I probably won't see it until mid April at the earliest. Ordered the Stealth w/ sunroof insert and no rise. I was in the same boat as you. No one really makes a custom plug and play complete rack setup for the Sequoia. 4runner and Tacoma have multiple options, but GOBI seemed to be the best looking and one of the only options for our venhicles.

    Hello just wondering if you had done some research on light bars that fit? I ordered the Gobi rack pretty much exactly like you did no rise. I want to order a light bar just in case it’s taking a long time. I just dont know what size to order. 40 or 50 inch

    No clue on the light bar, but I would move forward with it because my neighbor just got his Gobi Stealth for his 4runner. Took 26 weeks!

    So my Kings finally showed up. I initially had the front set as high as you could go and in the rear had the dobinsons 1.75 inch rear coil springs installed. Well the front looked great but it had ready for launch look going on. I placed an order for new 2.5 rear coil springs from Dobinson and had them lower the front an inch. Once I receive the new coil springs I will hopefully be able to go higher in the front because it looked great. I am now patiently waiting for my Gobi rack to come in and the approximate 3 plus months for the new springs.

    The pictures are before I lowered the front an inch. It got completed and went on vacation right away.

    I've got the Rigid fogs on my 2018. They perform well, much better than the stock versions I replaced them with. Are they worth the money, meh...maybe.

    I wanted to go as high as you could go. We called King and asked and said we could go from 1 inch to an inch and a half from where they were set when we received them. I believe they came at 2.5 inches. We went the inch and a half higher so probably close to 4 inches. It was pretty high in the front which the picture you can’t really tell. If you looked at it from the side the front was way higher. We lowered it the inch in front which thankfully we did not have to remove to shock to do it. They came with a special tool that we were able to adjust it down just by putting the vehicle in the air and a lot of elbow grease.
