Wiring Toyota Sequoia Overland LED Lights

While all the Aurora lights come with a LED light pod wiring harness that can operate two LED light pods our customer had different ambitions. He wanted to operate all four LED flush mount pods in his off-road bumper from one switch. Lucky for him we have the products available to make that dream come to fruition without any intense splicing.


Aurora makes a 4 way splitter which allows you use to take a single output light bar wiring harness and turn it into a 4 output wiring harness. For some vehicles you may still need to do a little extending of the wires if the lights are too far apart. The other good feature of using Aurora products for your Toyota Sequoia's off road lights is their low amp draw. Each pod draws about 2.1 amps per light, and times four that is only 8.4 amps which means you won’t be consuming a lot of power.

Why you need these overland lights on your Toyota Sequoia

The flood beam led lights are great for your Toyota Sequoia because it provides significantly more lighting than your stock headlights can which makes trail riding easier and safer. As you know, trails tend to be very narrow, and the sides of the trails can be packed full of boulders, trees, and other forms of shrubbery. If you used a light bar in this scenario, it would be too much light which can potentially reflect into your face and become counterproductive.

Another benefit to these LED lights is they work well if you’re following another person on the trail as it won’t be overly bright to them. However, this light will produce enough light for you to safely navigate the trail and avoid any potential hazards.

The 40-inch light bar is a perfect addition for your Toyota Sequoia as it cut through the night like a hot knife through butter and give you a clear picture of the road ahead. If you are on a wide-open trail or riding in the sand dunes this light will not just provide light for the path you are taking but it will also provide light for the area around the path.


When it comes to adding ditch lights to your Toyota Sequoia, the Aurora 3-Inch wide angle lights are an ideal upgrade as it will provide light to the side of vehicle allowing you to safely make turns. Additionally, extra light on the side of your Toyota Sequoia will allow you to see faded trail makers and make the correct turn.
