Thumbs up FJ CRUISER GRIP HANDLES install on a 2014+ T4R

FJ CRUISER GRIP HANDLES INSTALL Revision 1.0

The purpose of this write-up is to help people that are interested in installing FJ CRUISER GRIP HANDLES on their 2014+ Toyota 4Runner. I will list the parts used as well as pictures.


Remove OEM Handles, Install the steel 1/4-20 Steel Knurled Flanged Rivet Nut as shown with a rivet nut install tool. Mine came from Grainger. Grainger 1/4-20 Steel Rivet Nut Link If you don't have a Grainger, see the spec sheet for diameter of rivet nut as these fit the rectangular hole better than the smaller diameter ones.

LIST:
Part numbers of OEM Toyota & parts needed.

74603-35010-BO TOYOTA Grip Handles
1/4-20 Steel Rivet Nut (Rivnut)
Rivet Nuts installed (Mine are installed forward in the rectangular holes)
1/4-20 X 1 1/4" Stainless Cap Screws shown installed in the Rivet Nuts (for demonstration purposes only)
Handles bolted in with cap screw shown.
FJ Cruiser Grip Handles installed complete
Tool used: Westward Rivet NutGun
These are more secure like they should be. I was not satisfied with the nylon nuts for the fixture.

Hi. Excuse my ignorance, but what makes the FJ grip handles better than the ones that come stock on the 4Runner? I am always on the lookout for things I didn't know I needed until I see that someone else has them :-).

Would you say that these are strong enough to grab in order to function as a lifting aid like the one on the front passenger's pillar?

@airbusa380 ,

EDIT: Changed my answers because I removed the nylon nuts and replaced them with steel rivnuts!

I have not done any weight test.

The one on the "A" Pillar is anchored with a bolt & welded nut in the "A" pillar.
I would have to say no to your question.

I don't / wouldn't use the OEM ones to use lifting aid like the one on the front passenger's pillar!

The one in the "A" pillar is the only one on our trucks that have a nut/screw fixture to my knowledge.
The other fixtures are rectangular holes with a metal spring type clip that is holding your overhead handles in place.

EDIT: This is as strong as one can make this fixture without having welded nuts in the overhead framework.
***I would definitely trust this as I trust the grip on the "A" Pillar.***

Would you say that the color match between the light grey headliner and the handles is bad, good or great?

They are the same color as the OEM's.

Great!

Ok, guys/gals....

I have to say after a few days of seeing and using these FJ handles in the T4R, I consider this one of the Best Mods I have done so far on my 4Runner.
They are solid when I grab hold of them. I don't find they hinder or interfere with headspace.

My wife asked "why didn't they install these like on the FJ?"
Exactly my feelings!

Been out in the woods all weekend. Just added this mod to the "Interior Mods" section of the Mods sticky. Good write up @Saker !

Did you do these front and rear? If not, see any reason why you couldn't install in the rear as well?

The rear ones won't look as pretty because there is a third hole and the headliner is shaped to accommodate handles with hooks. I, for one, did not care much, and replaced them, too, when I was installing the 4th gen runner handles.



The photo is horrible, I know.
