Sweet! I was hoping to find a better alternative to the OEM which is...rather small.
Hello @Lex !!!

I agree !!!

I think these will provide not only better protection but more aesthetically appealing in my opinion :)

Currently I am working on modifying this to accommodate the clearance of the exhaust piping on the passenger side.

I will keep you all posted !!!

I installed these, most likely will be available at your automotive stores. In Canada, it is available at Canadian Tire. I got the biggest one, the C series 15.75"x9.25" , nothing fancy about it but it worked.
Gone through the winter without any snow kicked up and pack in the rear bumper.

Hey there SiennaChat Folks !!!

Many thanks to Ati / IG : tacotroopers / www.tacotroopers.com for his support for the Shinkansen Project !!!

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of The Toyota Sienna in North America, and so I was in need of a Silver tribute !!!

The Night Before ToyotaFest, Ati spent 3.5 hours creating, customizing, and installing both the Silver Pearl and White Pearl Wrap Graphics on the Sienna.

The wraps enhanced and complemented the existing Blizzard Pearl White finish perfectly !!!

Hey there SiennaChat Folks !!!

Yesterday was a Sienna Tech Day Sunday !!!

My All New Rear Fender & Bumper Sequential LEDs are now installed !!!

Enhancing the Bold Style of the 4th Generation Sienna these LEDs came out sharp and bright. These provide added Safety and Visibility for the rear for normal driving and during foggy conditions. Overall, I’m very satisfied with both the fitment and finish.

I did not utilize the Sequential Turn Signal feature as I wanted the Rear Braking LEDs to take priority. Road trip time !!!

Question does the bumper still have reflectors? Example if your car is parked at night and turned off will the bumper reflect headlights?
I asked one seller on Aliexpress(same stuff, much cheaper than ebay), short answer, no. But let's see how's the real answer @Shinkansen
Some old style 2 function bumper light(without sequential) looks like still have reflectors.

Hello @Velox003 and @banson99 !!!

There is no reflector within the housing like the OEM.

Visible from the outside however, there is a light reflective material behind the red clear lens in the design as you can see below ...

If you're looking to have more reflective material, you can search Google and/or Amazon for a product such as "Automotive Reflective Tape."

For example :
Amazon : Automotive Reflective Tape

Hope this helps !!!

Hi
I'm trying to change the reflectors to LEDS. I can't get the ones out from the bumper even after unscrewing from inside the bumper. Any tips that you can recommend to remove the existing reflector would be great.

Thanks

Hello @svreddykooturu,

Here's a photo of the LED housing.
You can see the plastic tabs circled in red. These tabs are also on the original OEM reflectors.
In addition to the screws holding the OEM reflectors in place, these tabs need to be pinched with needle nose pliers to remove them from the bumper :

Office supplies Bicycle part Bumper Cable Composite material


Behind the bumper you will see 1 screw on each side.
These will need to be removed so that you can go between the bumper and the other cover to access the tab :

Bumper Automotive exterior Gas Motor vehicle Composite material


Once you're able to access behind the cover, you will see the tab inside which needs to be pinched with needle nose pliers to help pop out the OEM reflector on the other side :

You will then need to drill a hole so that the wiring plug and wiring can be inserted through :

Then you will connect that plug to the harness then that harness to the OEM harness.

Hope this helps.

Hi finally installed everything and came out amazing!
Thanks for the information you provided.
However I came across one issue at the end.
The power trunk door when operated automatically does not close completely. It comes one inch short of closing, beeps and stops there as if there is something blocking. When I close manually it closes and latches without any issues.
I reinforced sensors on the hatch. I'll try to reinforce again later today all the stuff I removed for installation.
Any suggestions is appreciated.

Hello @svreddykooturu,

Looks great !!!

I'm not sure what is obstructing the door from closing.

You may want to check all sensors and connections / plugs for the bumper. And make sure all parts are seated correctly.
