I noticed a small leak on the 08 seq today when I parked in my driveway which sloped. I always pull into the garage and never have any drips. I had a oil change about a month ago.
Any ideas?

Could be where the tech at the oil change spilled some oil on a place that drains out when on a slope. I used to have that issue with a Chevy P/U. Had a skid plate that was under the filter and it always caught some spillage, then dripped out on slopes.

agreed ^, maybe some old oil was sitting on your skid plate and didnt have a chance to drain out until you left it on a slope for an extended period of time.

Mine is parked every night and day on a slope and I have never leaked oil. I do wish toyota made a better parking brake though.

Can it be upgraded??

I agree about the parking brake being less than adequate. I think that a retensioning of the parking brake cable at the point where it meets the brake shoes will do a lot. I'm going to give that a try next time I get a chance to put the Sequoia on stilts...
