    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.

    I used that handle all the time to get into my 2012. Will definitely need to get it for my new Tundra now.

    Took me 5 minutes to install. Got it on Ebay with it already trimmed fo fit and install hardware included. I like it so far.

    I’m sure this was mentioned but Sparks Toyota out of Myrtle Beach sells the entire kit with hardware.

    Once you get it, it takes 10 minutes. Easy upgrade and works!

    Looks easy enough and I like the idea of breaking up the grey, plus itll get dirty quick

    I know how to do the normal cord wrap and I see there are instructions for that, but this style of cord wrap I like! Do you have instructions on how to do this?
    By the way, Harbor Freight carries parachute cord for dirt cheep, a buck can do both driver and passenger sides. Just not the color selection as Hobby Lobby tho...

    Harbor freight has good and bad items, I do buy certain things there but I call them disposable tools. Don't get me wrong I like their stuff. I wouldn't buy the cord from them just because I would be afraid of the dye on the cord coming off onto my hands or worse on the interior of the truck. With a coupon you can get enough cord to do 3 trucks for $5.50 in Hobby Lobby. I'm not taking a risk of saving $2 or $3 on a $40,000+ truck.

    Thanks for the link!

    I have installed the HF cord on my Tundra, but I'm not sure where this dye info came from. I have absolutely no dye coming off on my hands after weeks of driving. Not that I'm a HF fanboy, having loads of Snap On, Mac and Matco tools in my toolbox. That particular info was meant for those who may want to try it on the cheep.

    I pulled my handle I had installed on my 17 tundra off my truck when I totaled it. I need to transfer it to my new truck this weekend. The people in the lot probably thought I was crazy.
