They didn't just change the trim level and rebadge the truck... they're quite differnent.
You are right, the sequoia or top end Lexus SUV are more of land cruisers that are bloated. I would since my mom drives the former of the two and I have worked on all of the above.

My daily beater is a simple jeep WJ with a .300 blackout and 300 rounds of ammo and the usual medical gear and tools/food. Nothing overly fancy but it is capable enough off road and is adequate for many uses. Gun doesn't stay in the car btw since so many here get triggered by that.....
