    I ordered mine form KTJO, then saw some of these posts and panicked a little. Got everything 5 days later. All the hardware is included and all the covers seem to fit well.
    I am going to get different hardware before doing the install, again because of reading the posts here. I will update when the install is complete.

    You desire to drive down the road with your hand off the wheel on a grab handle?

    Kidding aside, I'm 6' (6' 1" with boots) and I find myself using the steering wheel everytime I climb up on the saddle, and my 2020 is stock height. I totally see the function, but still guessing theres a reason on our Tacomas it was omitted, and it wasn't cost.

    Takes me back to my youth when I used to hold the roof on with my left hand. Manual in those days too. :D

    I did get a second driver side grab handle. When I emailed KTJO 4 x4 I already installed your grab bar 4 months ago and why did you send another one. The answer was - Weird. Just the word weird???

    I had surgery a month back and getting in and out of the truck was rough. Heading in to it I contemplated taking the risk on these but figured that splitting my guts open as I got out of the truck was probably more desirable than dealing with KTJO

    I didn’t bother her with the details of my unsolicited grab handle. Just passed it on. I wonder who does her books?

    I've found from researching contractors, etc that people go to BBB to file complaints. Very few will leave a review there one way or the other.
