    I was going to order a sticker, but then I read somewhere that you may have to bend the glass just ever so slightly to complete the install. So as much as I would really like to have the sticker, I decided to pass.

    You can try plugging them into a socket, but you might not like the results

    I would put a small mark on the inside and return it. Then we can see who gets it next.

    Pay it forward. Lol

    I had received the wrong size clipnut (M6) with my original shipment that took forever to arrive. After informing KTJO of the fact, she sent me an entire new hardware pack. So I have extra collar spacers if you want one for your handle.

    I believe the molders just tossed the parts in a box for shipping to the folks what wrap and ship them to KTJO 4x4. That is my guess at the source of the crappy edge finish on the handles. Zero QC or any attempt of feedback in the system.

    It sounds like you need to tweak the upper clip.

    Yeah, the bottom bushing hole is too large on all of them even though it as splines to capture the bushing. Again, zero QC at ever stage of the project.

    Sticker installation actually requires an entire drawer of Jeremys. Jeremys not included in purchase cost.

    BFH is a good, but no one knows what I'm talking about when I ask for one.

    So does Toyota not make the Tacoma in right hand drive for over seas markets? Any way we could find a European Tacoma A pillar handle? Seems like all the mounting frame work exists on the frame? What are Gen 3 tacos called? Hilux something a ma Bob’s?

    No. Only NA, CA, and SA LHD markets. The HiLux is a different platform with a completely different interior.

    I looked around and found my spare leftover KTJO Plug n' Play hardware parts. The collar-spacer is ALUMINUM... so you would be searching for it with a magnet till eternity. :playball:
    I'll try to get it in the mail to you tomorrow
