Selling my 2005 Toyota Sequoia Limited. Let’s just get this out of the way…yes it is a 2wd. I know the 4wd is the desirable model, but when I went looking for a black/tan 2005 Limited and ran across this one I had to have it.In all the years I have owned other Toyota trucks I have only needed 4wd a handful of times. In day to day driving, 4wd isn’t used anyway. A good set of tires, brakes and not getting yourself in bad spots where 4wd is needed is really all you need. I have gone out on logging roads in search of whitetail deer. I have pulled a utility trailer. I have pulled a camper and I have pulled our boat up the boat ramp countless times with zero issues or getting stuck. I wouldn’t hesitate to own this vehicle if that sounds like what you would typically do. If you overland or plan to rock crawl…then yes you need to find a 4 by 4 ; )Reason for selling, we bought a house to renovate and I needed a truck for all the trips to the lumber yard and material hauling. Naturally I bought another Toyota, this time a Tundra.Details:2005 Limited. I searched specifically for a 2005 to get the higher 282hp 4.7L engine with the 5 speed transmission. Look up the differences and you'll see the 2005 is the year to get.There is NO rust on the frame. I attached pics with the wheels off and the underside. A little bit of dirt and some corrosion on the suspension parts, but frame is 100% SOLID. Even the rear door jambs are completely rust free.Power everything: Windows, locks,keyless, sunroof, power rear window (works great), power heated seats. Factory towing package with trans cooler and wiring for brake controller. Cold A/C.Stereo: Alpine DVD/CD/AM/FM/Bluetooth head unit. I upgraded the front speakers to new JBLs to replace the factory speakers that all disintegrate after a few years. Head unit has outputs for sub/amps and is also wired to work with the steering wheel controls. It's also wired to play a movie while driving. USB access in glovebox. Advent DVD entertainment system with headphones and remotes included.Works awesome on long trips with the kids!Wheels: 17"x8" FN FxPro wheels. These are replicas of the TRD wheels but are lighter, stronger and yes 8 inches wide (factory are 7s). This allows for a better fitment of the larger tires and a perfect stance. No wheel spacers are required. I had custom TRD logo stickers for the center caps made.Tires: BFGs of course in size 285/70-17. The only rubbing is when at full lock and you might get a slight wheel well liner rub. Very rare and no rubbing in daily driving.Suspension: Front suspension consists of Bilstein 5100 shocks on new factory springs. I believe the collar is on the 3rd setting to give the vehicle a slight lift. Rear suspension consists of factory shocks, Land Cruiser 2862 springs and EZ Lift air springs within the coils. This lifted the rear slightly and gives a better towing stance when the air springs are inflated. I have towed our camper and boat and vehicle sits nice and level. The ride is only slightly stiffer than stock but looks so much better. Valves for air springs are located at the trailer electrical socket for easy adjustment. I also installed Wheeler’s Offroad Anti-Sway kit which included sway bar bushings, bump stops and end link bushings.Brakes: I rebuilt the entire brake system a few years back. All rebuilt factory calipers, stainless lines, Stoptech Powerslot rotors on the front and Hawk pads. Vehicle stop sextremely well however if I were to keep the vehicle, I would swap out the pads. They have plenty of life left but they like to be really warm to work well and I would probably put in a more street pad like the ones Stoptech offers. I put Stoptechs on my Tundra and the initial bite when cold is just better. Occasionally the brake light will come on while driving. This is atypical Sequoia thing and there are many threads on the subject. I replaced the master cylinder reservoir and flushed the fluid and the issue seems to have corrected itself. If it does come back on, restarting the vehicle will clear the light. It may be the actual booster if it persists, but so far it hasn’t come back. Braking is 100% functional.Other items replaced:Oil pressure sender switch.Left and right bank 1 oxygen sensors.Airbag recall completed.Rear liftgate latch (I installed the metal version not the factory plastic one that breaks)Strong Arm rear liftgate supports installed to replace weak factory ones.Accessories:Rola roof rackWeathertech floor matsFront windows tint matched to rearAries grille guardHella driving lights with Lamin-X yellow filmLED light barLights are wired to rocker switches in the center consoleBlacked out headlights with Sylvania Silverstar bulbs. Headlights look better than the silver factory ones, but they do have a bit of condensation that shows up after a rain and the front of them show some clear coat peel. Typical of these aftermarket lenses unfortunately.I had the rear muffler cut off and a pipe welded for side exit.This is a typical modification and helps to not put exhaust in your face when loading a trailer. Only a slight sound increase over stock.Battery is a Platinum AGMThe Bad: Vehicle is a 2005 so it does have its share of nicks and dings. Nothing terrible. Paint shines up nicely. There is a rip in the driver’s seat leather on the side bolster (see pic). Typical. I had every intention of getting it repaired however it has never gotten worse. Front grille shows a bubble area in the chrome strip (see pic). There is a scratch on the rear liftgate (see pic).Sequoia is ready to go, clean title in hand. I have a stack of paperwork and the original window sticker. It comes with trailer brake control wiring, manual, wheel lug tool, 2 keys, 2 remotes. I do not need help selling and do not want any trades.
