    Yeah. That label is 100% bullshit. No matter what, it would be a different part number because it is a mirrored part at a minimum. IRL, it is a completely different design.


    Just moar of the KTJO4x4 "For the Community" service.

    or lack thereof

    It's fucking pathetic. :cheers:

    Stock wheels and suspension. Random "utilitarian" mods featured on this great forum.
    Based on part number, looks like Advance Auto in Ffx, Chantilly... etc. Have them in stock. You can probably find a 25% off coupon code to apply. Not sure where in NoVa you're at but looks like they're in stock everywhere. Better hurry up and snatch them before more people start getting their handles :).

    Well. @PapaRee 's upper cover arrived. Which caused me to change my vote. There were some nicks / gouges in the lower edge of the upper handle opening. I thought that they might get hidden by the cover. NOPE! FFS!

    There's zero chance, but I sincerely hope that KTJO4x4 goes out of business. She won't given the social media sheeple, but a dood can dream . . .

    Let me help you try to get a complete replacement. I saw the ding in your handle, and, on top of all things, that's not right. You've been generous enough with your time to keep this thread going, let me give it a shot. PM me your order number, or post it here. It's worth a try... :notsure:

    Thanks, Ryan! I really appreciate that.

    :cheers:

    But, I'm just gonna cry in my suds here.

    And on that subject, the keg just kicked. At least I got a couple pints out of it after I got home. LoL! :bananadead:

    Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance ... with the keg... Actually, I could probably ship you my extra keg of Mai Tai for what you paid for that handle. :rolleyes:

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I was a bit surprised. The end of 2020 really put a hurt on that Brown Ale.


    You probably could. And it would probably get here faster. :bananadead:

    My handle arrived today after being delayed by the Post Office for several days. The covers are installed, but the clip nut is the one that is too large. I'll stop by O'Reilly's tomorrow and get the 961-320D part kit. There are two bolts with the handle of unequal length....which one goes where?

    The covers don't fit all that well, but ok I guess. Better than nothing though....I sure got used to the grab iron in my 1997 4Runner and still reach for it in the Tacoma when getting out. Don't need it for getting in though...

    Thanks!

    Ted

    I believe it is short up top. Check to see that they stick out evenly before threading to verify. That was what I did before we had instructions.

    I’m actually expecting to get the delivered notice then come home to a yellow postcard saying undeliverable and then get lost when I go up couple days later saying it can’t be found lmao

    I've gotten loss notices before and the item showing up later. Talk about a wave of expectation and defeat.

    It's probably where mine disappeared to - decided it wanted the warm weather, not the snow in PA. Still no tracking update on mine - been in limbo since it was shipped on the 28th.

    USPS got my hopes up. Pushed the delivery date from 1/6 to being out for delivery yesterday. Never showed up, this morning it says it was delivered to my porch yesterday at 6:30pm. Check my cameras and nada. :pout: Maybe today... tomorrow... next week... who knows.

    Oof. It said delivered? That's not good. Maybe talk to your carrier.

    I'm going to have to assume you mean that her customers have learned a lesson here. I've seen no indication that the product seller has learned any lessons.

    I've tried to avoid using the vendors name in my posts in this thread, but not sure if that's the correct path. Maybe we need to mention it a gazillion times here and try to get this thread higher in the search engine indexes. What's everyone else think?

    Yes, I'm salty and vindictive at this point.

    So... This whole handle thing isn't going too well...? I really want(ed) one but this thread is making me sad.

    EDIT: Why the fuck wasn't this handle part of the factory design?!

    I have an update about my handle that I ordered on 11/29/2019. Never received the rebate that I sent in. After sending several emails, she finally responded requesting to pay the shipping ransom. She also, in not so many words, wasn't going to honor the rebate unless i can prove she received it. Since so many of you have yours in the USPS black hole, I paid additional ransom for FedEx ground. Got the tracking number last night and scheduled delivery is Friday. How much you wanna bet she sent me a grey one instead of the black that I ordered.
