Hi all

I have a 2017 double cab 2.4 hilux which I got about a month ago. First 4x4, first hilux! Loving it!

But I have a small problem. When the going gets a bit rough, because I'm tall, my head sometimes hits the driver side interior roof handle. I was wondering if there was a softer replacement, or a strap kinda thing.

Has anyone else had this issue? I don't really seem to ever use the handle and maybe I could just remove it and that would be fine.

Thanks for any input!

Not sure where you will get these in RSA. They are for Jeeps, but should work in your Revo as well.

On the other hand, if you say you never use it I would just remove it and look for a nice plug to cover the hole.

Manufacturers sometimes leave that handle off on the passenger side of the more basic feature models. In such cases they have a couple of cover plates over the holes and if you could source a couple of those, just remove the handle, fit the covers and you're sorted.

You could also steal with your eyes from that link Pieter posted and have a couple of strap handles made up.
