No Toyota gets to wear the TRD Pro badge without several equipment upgrades, but the Sequoia has a solid base to build on with its body-on-frame chassis, good ground clearance, and V8 heart. Just like every other TRD Pro model, the Sequoia gains aluminum internal bypass Fox shocks. Up front, they're 2.5 inches and have seven compression zones to two rebound zones. The rear uses two-inch piggyback monotube Fox shocks. Further upgrades include a reduced front spring rate and 18-inch BBS forged aluminum wheels.
