    Ordered mine in November of 2019. Didn't get tracking until I paid the additional shipping. Didn't know I needed to do that and didn't know how until someone put her post up about how to.

    Sad part is I have bought most of her stuff and it's decent but I'm probably done.

    This thread is hilarious.... my theory is her full time job is at the dmv. I’m not a year yet, but I’ve been waiting on some license plates. Even worse still, I think I might get a grab handle from Tacoma beast....

    If you order from ktjo right now, you will not have the same (unsettling) experience that some of us have had. She is good at doing “just in time” type fulfilment.

    Communicating when things go off the rails, not so much.

    Yeah. I'd just order from her and hope for the best. At least the caps and bolts should be figured out by now.

    #3 on the pre-order list and mine stuck in limbo land Supposed to be shipped on the 19th. Hope it comes in soon after seeing a video by TB and I paid upfront. I have bought several things from her in the past with no issues and then I get the shaft that I paid to help out and some have already gotten theirs.:ohsnap:

    Happy New Year:oldglory:

    I think someone just got theirs recently and it had an M8 bolt clip.

    Right but I'm guessing (probably a bad guess) that she took the wrong bolts out and inserted the right ones before shipping the new ones.

    I think the bolts are ok. It's the M8 slip nuts that are wrong.

    The New Year is already going better. I can be more objective and way less emotional when discussing these grab handles (as opposed to the last year). :cheers:

    Once again, not KT's fault, no apology, and the message goes out on social media. Does she realize that not everyone is checking her IG and FB pages?

    The more this goes on, the more delusional she seems.

    If you have one of these M8 slip nuts I think you’d be better off getting an M6 at a local hardware store. Don’t like the sound of “Break coming up”. Pretty soon they’ll be into another forced Covid break as well.
