1st Gen Sequoia High Clearance Rear Bumper Kit

From: USD$774

We are very excited to finally offer our high clearance DIY weld-together rear bumper kit for the 1st generation (2000-2007) Toyota Sequoia! It provides excellent protection for the rear of your Sequoia and the high clearance design hugs the rear of the vehicle for unbeatable ground clearance and departure angle. Simply put, you can not get any more rear end clearance without hacking into the body of the vehicle! The ultra low-profile design of this bumper keeps the weight very reasonable, meaning that you can run it with the factory suspension without any noticeable sag or change in performance. However, don't let the slim profile fool you! This bumper has been designed with hard offroad driving in mind and can take a serious beating without skipping a beat.

Description

As far as ground clearance goes, don’t let the tall side wings fool you. This bumper has been designed to provide the absolute maximum departure angle and ground clearance without cutting into the body of your Sequoia. The rear profile of the bumper slopes inwards towards the vehicle and hugs the rear of the frame as tight as possible. This sloped profile combined with the recessed hitch receiver result in a rear end that easily slides over trail obstacles rather than hanging up on them and impeding your forward progress up the trail! Simply put, this bumper allows you to forget about departure angles and substantially improves the offroad capability of your Sequoia!

To maximize ground clearance and achieve a slim, tidy bumper profile, we decided to put the main center section of the bumper on top of the vehicle frame rather than behind it. If you are not a fan of the look of the two frame horn end caps located towards the bottom of the bumper, the provided instruction manual includes instructions for a more extreme frame cut. The more extreme cut minimizes the size of these frame end caps to gain a little extra ground clearance and a more pared-down look.

The end result is a bumper that features a bolt-on design (minor frame trimming required), an optional 2″ hitch receiver that is recessed into the bumper shell for maximum clearance and a clean appearance (many people don’t even notice its there!), and excellent protection from trail obstacles, trees and inattentive motorists. This bumper comes standard with 9/16″ D-ring shackle mounts and is available with surface mount LED pod lights and tabs to mount the lights on top of the bumper or swing outs. To protect the vulnerable rear corners of your Sequoia, this bumper is available with optional tubing side hoops that will help push your Sequoia away from trees and rock walls.

Unlike many aftermarket bumpers that are more or less empty shells with minimal reinforcement, this bumper contains extensive internal ribbing and mounts to the bottom, sides and top of the vehicle frame for unmatched strength and stiffness. The bumper side wings are tied directly into the vehicle frame using massive 3/8″ thick support brackets that are CNC-cut and bent in house for a customized fit. These bumper side wings can take serious offroad hits without flexing into the vehicle body. With this bumper, you’ll be able to tackle challenging trails with a new level of confidence knowing that the rear end of your Sequoia is now nearly invincible!

The ultra low-profile design of this bumper keeps the weight extremely reasonable at 127lbs in steel and 63lbs in aluminum while maintaining excellent strength. This is especially noteworthy when you consider the fact that the factory hitch receiver, frame crossmember and plastic rear bumper all get removed before installing the Coastal Offroad bumper. We were shocked to find these factory parts weigh a total of 109lbs! This means that even with our steel bumper version, the total weight increase to your vehicle is only 18lbs – negligible at best. This minimizes added stress on your vehicle, maintains precious payload capacity, and allows you to keep your factory suspension if desired.

The swing out tire carrier comes in either a single or dual sided configuration and is built to accept a tire up to 37″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty chromoly heim joint hinges, massive 3/8″ steel surround brackets (thickest in the industry), 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.

•DIY Weld-together kitThis bumper arrives as precision CNC-laser cut pieces that you then weld together (detailed assembly instructions included)

•Laser cut and CNC-bent parts are slotted and tabbed for foolproof fitment. This greatly reduces the amount of assembly, welding, grinding time required by you and makes for a cleaner finished product. The Nitrogen laser cutting technology means no cutting edge oxidation or slag and thus easier and stronger welds

•Bolts directly to vehicle frame using 12 factory mounting points – minor frame cutting required

•Slim profile is engineered to provide maximum ground clearance and complement the factory body lines

•Heavy duty 3/16″ plate steel construction for maximum offroad strength and durability

•Optional 1/4″ 5052 aluminum construction for a lightweight yet very durable overlanding setup (64lb weight savings)

•Optional 2″ hitch receiver is contoured for a clean look and further clearance gains (While the hitch is very well reinforced, we cannot rate it for on-road towing due to the DIY welding nature of this kit)

•Reinforced 9/16″ thick clevis mounts allow the use of 3/4″ D-Rings and pull directly off of the frame for confident recoveries of heavily loaded vehicles

•Maintains full usage of factory spare tire location underneath the vehicle.

•Compatible with Factory Hitch Receiver (Spacer block and drilling of Coastal Offroad bumper required to maintain factory hitch center mounting bolts)

•Optional Single and Dual Swing out carriers with spare tire mount, hilift jack mount and locking dual NATO can holder (dual swing out only)

•Optional LED lights include adjustable mounting tabs to mount the lights either on the swing outs or on top of the bumper

Bumper Assembly

As for welding, with everything designed using CAD software and then CNC laser-cut to size, the pieces fit together perfectly and this makes for a very simple assembly process. All kits come with detailed instructions with plenty of clearly labelled diagrams that are made using cutting-edge CAD software. The entire center section of this bumper is made from a single CNC-bent piece of metal (steel version only), greatly reducing the amount of welding and grinding required. This bumper kit is well within the ability of a novice welder and many customers have purchased it as their very first welding project with great results! This is made possible by the clean parts fit-ups and thick material. These are two factors that make welding significantly easier. Welding is one of those skills that is easier to learn than you may think and once you can do it, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Alternatively, many individuals buy the kits and then have a local welder assemble it for them. Even in this case, it typically ends up being less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated bumper – especially after considering the lower shipping costs of our kits vs. fully assembled bumpers.
