Default Thanks kendig

I just completed this mod on our 08 400h, a new look for a new year. I had the idea a while ago and with the info I found here I was able to order the parts and do it right. Now on to lowering it and the Wald body kit.

If we can replace that with the FIN antenna, then it would look AWESOME!!!

Thanks Kendig and mandyfig(and others) for all the pictures and answers!

I was trying to order but after checking sewellonline.com and using clublexus code, the pricing is almost double what you listed. Not only has the price gone up but I could not find the exact ending numbers. Here's what you had:
2 each 75595-48011 cover, roof drip + 2 each 75596-48011 cover, roof drip(4 covers total 18.56)
4 each 63185-42020 bracket, roof rack (4 brackets 11.24)
8 each 90080-11724 bolt w/washer (8 bolts w/washers 16.64) mandyfig used Home Depot for 8mm-1 25 x 25mm 8 Steel/Zinc Plated Hex Bolts with Teflon coating(8 bolts w/washers $4.80 + $.80=$5.60 + Teflon Price?)

I looked on Sewell and the parts I found were:
Lexus OEM Roof Rack Bracket Front
Item: 63185-42020 In Stock $2.78 ea X 4 = $11.12

Lexus OEM Roof Drip Side Moulding Cover Front LH
Item: 75596-0E011 Available $9.41 ea X 2 = $18.82

Lexus OEM Roof Drip Side Moulding Cover Front RH
Item: 75595-0E011 Available $8.36 ea X 2 = $16.72

Total $46.66 and this is without bolts/washers/teflon and the clublexus code. What am I missing? How come I can't find the exact same parts numbers? Is this the reason for the higher price?

Just email (PM) Sewell with the part numbers we had. He'll take care of you. He will send you a link with the right part numbers on them and you just pay, apply coupon code as instructed.

The part numbers we had are the right ones.

I did some research with the other Lexus dealers for pricing. Part numbers were all over the place. Ended up with Sewell and they sent the right parts for me. The brackets were out of stock when I ordered but in 3 days, I got them.

Follow the part numbers that kendig listed.

The bolts (I bought them at HD, check my post, much cheaper than dealer) and teflon are pennies, do not sweat it.

Good luck and post pics after.

You guys were lucky ordering the parts for so cheap. They raised their prices to double. $54.76 is the quote I got. The Club Lexus code will only go so far. Makes this not such a hot deal any more. I'll just get the bolts with teflon from Home Depot and put some black tape over. It's the top so it'll be hard to notice anyways. For $55 not including shipping and discount, it'll be more than $55. Tape + bolts = ~$2.

Just checked and they were more:
Luis said,
2x - 75595-48011 cover, roof drip ---- 18.00 each
2x - 75596-48011 cover, roof drip ------ 18.00 each
4x - 63185-42020 bracket, roof rack -------10.00 each



$18 for a piece of plastic. Must be super plastic... Might as well go to my local dealer and buy them retail.

wow, I didn't buy them at those prices, far from it! They (along with everyone else I'm assuming) must've raised the prices after a bunch of us put orders in! Those prices are about 2-3 times more than what they were back in October. I feel your pain

I got quoted this from Lexus of Sacramento...my local dealer.

2 each 75595-48011 cover, roof drip-$10.57 ea.
2 each 75596-48011 cover, roof drip-$10.57 ea.
4 each 63185-42020 bracket, roof rack-$3.12 ea.
8 each 90080-11724 bolt w/washer-$1.67 ea.

Although cheaper, it's still $68 before tax! Damn!

Sorry, but the results will be awesome. Best thing is that when you clean, no racks.
