    Hey, Folks.

    This thread is for a matching drivers side assist handle. I would recommend not going down this path unless you are into S&M.

    The massive mess of corntact info if it is needed:

    You wanna have some fun reading about KTJO 4x4 return BS:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...les-w-a-pillars.642703/page-203#post-25097497


    Analogous summary of the situation:


    Clusterfuck Double Cover List:

    This list is for the unfortunate folks who got two of the same covers and would like to exchange instead of dealing with an unresponsive KTJO 4x4.

    Lemme know if you want to be added and also if the exchange was successful. Local exchanges are better, if possible.

    Peeps who got two tops:
    @PapaRee Prairieville, LA - Swap completed with @tonered
    @58electricman - San Diego, CA - Swap completed with @USATRDR8CR
    @sju350 - Morristown TN - Gray


    Peeps who got two bottoms:
    @tonered - Lynnwood, WA - Swap completed with @PapaRee
    @USATRDR8CR - Huntington Beach, CA 92708 - Swap completed with @58electricman
    @TacoSupremo19 - NJ - Black - by some miracle, actually received a replacement cover.
    @Soul Surfer - Florida - Black
    @Htownpro - Houston, TX - Black

    Im not so much concerned about the lack of the drivers side one since I can pull on the steering wheel. But I am interested in the "coming soon" rear handles for my kids.

    I would be concerned with pulling on the steering wheel over time as eventually other things will wear on the steering column by doing that but....yes. I will be sending the rear panel to my vendor soon and they will be sending me the 3D Model with handle to test fit. Then I will be doing the same thing as the Driver Side Handle. All of these will be available for our Tacoma :)

    Most likely because it hasn't been categorized by whichever filtering provider your work is using. Probably Barracuda. Not sure if you can submit a category or help push it along. Some insane amount of new websites pop up every day and it takes time for the filters to categorize them and your companies are blocking the unknown category.

    Hey, Folks.

    It looks like there was an update on the DAH molds posted on Instagram. TW is about as social as I get, so if someone happens to see something there, please post it here? Thanks!

    Buyer beware.

    Hahaha! Nothing to be ashamed about. I only ever had Facebook and hated it. There's a few folks that I would like the follow on IG, but it just ain't worth it.
