    Well, nut is probably 3/16th+ longer but it was midnight and the tape measure wouldn't lay right...

    (...and that was my 5 year old HTC phone taking the picture. I think it is the clearest picture it has ever taken .. its only a 3 or 4 MP ,,, lmfao. !!!)

    Side note, off topic: I wanted your grille. Mine is a 16' and I couldn't find any 18' grilles earlier this year so I went with the TOYOTA Pro one which came out OK, but I still like the honeycomb though.

    Sparks came out to $172 shipped to Dallas. Is Roman’s better priced?

    Likely the FEDX rate isn't adjusted much for the extra 1200 miles... UPS would have had a better rate. Haven't been impressed with FEDX as of late.

    Received and installed. Easy 15m job.

    I finally received my driver's side handle and it was installed in 20 minutes, only because I wanted to take some pictures. I found out from a previous post that the airbag deploys rearwards to protect the driver's head by covering the driver's side window. Because the additional hardware used for the handle is forward of the airbag, it will not interfere with a rearward airbag deployment. But, to err on the side of safety, I did apply a piece of foam between the clipnut and airbag in case of airbag deployment as it was about 1/8" away from the airbag.

    Has anyone tried this on a 2019? I just bought the 2019 1794 white crew max last week and would love to do this mod.

    i have a '12 i feel like the handle is more on the inside closer to the windshield rather then on the front part near your face like you see in OPs post. still dont think it would matter. where would you mount it then? does it fit in the stock tundra spot.

    my chevy had a bad airbag sensor (because its a chevy) and they didnt go off when i totaled my truck. i prefered it that way lol (jk safety is important)

    in other news, my aftermarket radio has a clock.

    I really wanna do this. Anyone have luck getting one at a junk yard? Junk yards are few and far between around here, not like they are in Texas or out west. If anyone can find a deal on one (or two :wink:) of these when your are looking, I'd gladly pay you for your time and shipping for one.

    By the time you pay for someone's time and shipping, you'd probably spend more than if you bought it new and had it shipped from Sparks.

    Picked this up through Sparks Parts and installed. Had added Katzkin seats and was starting to see wear/wrinkles from sliding out. Figured best to spend a couple hundred to see my $1400 seat investment.

    That's exactly my logic!! 'Got the 1794 Edition, might as well protect the seats!' GET the handle!!

    I don't have the handle and I have never missed it. I just get in and out of the truck like any other car. What am I missing? Or do you guys have lifted trucks? I am 6'4". Does that help me? I am just curious - if it is going to make life easier, as everyone here states, then I want to do it, but so far I have not seen the need.

    I just have a level kit and am 6’2 but was sliding off the seat and standing on my side step which was starting to show wear on the side of my leather. Now with handle I use it to pull up and don’t put that pressure or sliding on my seat.

    Thanks. I will try to pay attention when I get in and out. I might be sliding more than I think - just not realizing it. I also don't use my steps. So if I have the handle I guess I will have to start using them also, otherwise it will not help much.

    If this helps your decision, my son is in his 30's and 6"9". He absolutely loves the handle addition. It makes entries and exits that much easier.
