PAKRAX Loves the Toyota Sequoia For Overlanding

The Toyota Sequoia isn't always the first SUV that people think of when they are looking to purchase or outfit a vehicle for overlanding or off-road camping. Yes, it is a big vehicle with its long 122" wheelbase compared to the 109.8" wheelbase of the 5th generation 4Runner but with that extra size comes some unique advantages that are often overlooked.

With the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia, the overall length has actually increased by 3 inches compared to the previous generation which adds even more cargo space which is incredibly helpful if you are utilizing the rear seats for kids, dogs, or other passengers. We all know that the amount of gear and camping equipment we bring increases with the number of people that are on these fun overlanding adventures. Every person needs a sleep system, food, water, a personal bag, and shelter at a minimum, this means extra cargo space is vital for enhancing the experience and making memories that will never be forgotten.

We have started manufacturing different off-road accessories for both the second-generation (2007-2022) and third-generation (2023-current) Toyota Sequoia that allow you to utilize the massive roof for extra storage with our latest PAKRAX roof rack.  If you have a 2nd Gen Sequoia, the roof rack we have now is one hundred percent steel, designed & manufactured completely in-house in Gilbert, AZ using high-grade US steel. 

2nd Generation Toyota Sequoia - PAKRAX Overland Roof Rack


This rack is for overland enthusiasts who need a strong, durable yet sleek design, with ample options for their adventures overlanding. Great for rooftop camping with a rooftop tent, storage boxes, outdoor gear, kayaks, tools, and it features plenty of holes for additional mountable accessories!

We also have just released the roof rack for the all-new updated 3rd gen (2023-current) Toyota Sequoia! We've also manufactured the new roof rack with space for off-road lighting.

toyota sequoia rock sliders

We have also been hard at work and have released the brand new off road rock sliders for the 3rd generation 2023+ Toyota Sequoia! Rock sliders are probably one of the most important armor accessories to protect your rocker panels, increase ground clearance from removing footsteps that often limit your clearance over rocks, and running through ditches.  These are also great as steps to reach the gear off your roof rack or stow your rooftop tent.

Why Rocksliders?

  1. Increased ground clearance: Square tube sliders provide an additional two inches of ground clearance, allowing you to traverse rougher terrain without worrying about bottoming out.
  2. Improved traction: Square tube sliders offer improved traction in off-road scenarios, allowing for better grip and stability.
  3. Durability: Square tube sliders are made from durable materials, making them an ideal choice for those looking for a long-term solution.
  4. Easy installation: Installation of these sliders is relatively straightforward, meaning you can get them up and running in no time.
  5. Added protection: Square tube sliders provide extra protection for your 4Runner, helping to keep it safe from any potential damage caused by off-roading scenarios.


We hope that you aren't discouraged from using a larger SUV to be the main rig you use for overlanding. As always if you have any questions or would like more information about the purchase or installation process then feel free to reach out to us. We aren't just passionate about our products but we also love the outdoors. The more people we can encourage and equip to share that passion the better.
