    Adding the grab handle is one of the best mods you can do IMHO. You may be able to luck into one at a parts/junk yard for an inexpensive add.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but since I don't have one, does anyone notice it in your field of vision after installation?

    Anyone regret it?

    It took a minute to get used to it being there but it does not interfere at all for me. No regrets.

    Nope. It is far enough out of the way that I don't even notice it any more.

    Not at all. Best 15 minute mod you can do to the truck. I still forget it’s there and hop into the truck like I used to.

    one of the best mods out there , put it on my `2015 DC (2.5' leveling kit )and love it ! You will spend more time in lowes getting the bolt/ clip on nut than installing it . I went from grabbing the steering wheel climbing in to the handle and am thankful every day that I did it .

    I'm debating getting one. For ~$150 I'm not sure whether it's worth the spend. Lift will be on in the next week or so, so I guess I'll have to see how difficult it is to get in.

    This morning I didn't even know I was missing a driver's handle! Now my wallet is 160 bucks lighter.

    Kudos to @SparksParts for same day ship and TUNDRAS.COM discount.

    Got mine in today & I'm loving it!! Was very easy to install & looks like it's always been there. BTW, the Sparksparts kit comes with the additional required bolt & clip-nut, no additional parts required, 1-stop buy & install!!

    Anyone bought the handle for a bronze 1794? It looks tan but not positive.

    Install question... Do you all have a little bit of side to side wiggle when you give it a yank back and forth. It's not much, and definitely sturdy, but comparing to the OEM passenger side, there is a bit more give. I've screwed up too many things in my life by over-tightening, I was hoping to get some feedback before messing another "simple" install.

    No, you can lean on the bolt a little bit and make it sturdy.

    I just bought the trim piece and handle from my local Toyota dealer (no extra bolt and clip-on nut). I have boxes and boxes of various metric hardware due to my several decades of Japanese motorcycle ownership. I dug around and found a metric M6 clip-on nut and two M6 flanged bolts the same length as the one that held on the factory trim strip. All metric, we're good. Monk would be proud of me (old TV show).
