    Well, I didn't know what I was getting into. I bought the grab handle. It took about 2 weeks to get here. It wasn't damaged but there is 2 issues. There is a gap at the top of it, its not completely flush with the interior and for some reason the hole covers would not snap on and stay on. I just bought my 2021 Taco 1 month ago. I didn't know about this thread and I haven't read all 166 pages. Could someone give me a sitrep? If convenient. TIA

    Welcome, Beth! I advise you read the entire thread. It’s important. Some goober will shortchange it and try to impress you, but really, be a completist.

    Maybe you should rock it. Like the guys with the unpainted fender flares. Get a matching one for the other side. Hey, you’ll be the only one.

    Cliffnotes: KTJO4x4 is a shitshow. The grab handle is a shit show. You made need to bend the fuck out of some Plug-n-Play OEM items that you purchased to get them to line up like only non-Plug-n-Play OEM items would. Go to the search bar, type in something along the lines of bend, bending, had to bend, etc and then click the box that says, "This thread only" and that may get you to the info you seek.

    In case you haven't see, these parts suck....

    It's definitely an entertaining read if you have some time...

    Otherwise, seems like the concensus on the alignment is that you have to bend the metal top mount some to line it up better. :( I think someone elongated the holes on the grab handle instead of bending metal, but I don't remember who or how it worked out.

    I'm not sure as far as the covers not staying in place.

    You will get charged for the second one. Then you'll return it for a refund b/c you didn't want it, paying for the return shipping, but in transit the box will get beat to $hit. Since the whole thing was totally your fault, she won't refund you, but she couldn't anyways, because she's on said vacation you just helped fund....

    :rofl::yay::popcorn:

    sorry...I just couldn't help it...

    I’m drinking first to dampen my standards. Which are admittedly already pretty low.

    Still trying to line up the holes?

    Maybe he passed out in the truck after polishing off the bottle?

    Tom hanks was happy, then he realized he was on the island where the show LOST was and actually dead the whole time. :eek:

    I am officially in the black hole of shipping wait. Initially USPS tracking showed delivery date of yesterday...well guess what didn’t show up. Right now on USPS tracking, it just shows “will arrive late”.
