Is there actually an airbag there? Because I don't know if the handle ACTUALLY affects anything:

the airbag actually pushes the seal out and inflates that way. the handle should not affect anything. if you look at deployed bags you can see the pillar does not move.

Then as long as you make sure whatever backer that holds the bottom handle on doesn't contact the SRS airbag then it should be perfectly safe.

The 4th gen had a driver side handle. Maybe you could adapt one of those.

Should be able to mount the passenger side handle, I just need to get a part number, and you'd use a longer bolt on the top bolt, and make some sort of backer for the bottom, as long as it doesn't affect the airbag.

I use the steering wheel as a handle. Did the same thing in my old 4th gen even though there was a handle there. Works fine. No chance of messing up the airbag. No mods necessary.

Some other cars have it on the drivers side. If you look at Toyota’s own line up the land cruiser has it as well.
