A visual installation of the Blacked Out Handle for those who need it (like myself) Added pictures to Sealevel's procedure.



1. Open Door, Identify Black Plasic plug on door jam and remove.


2. Loosen Torx fastener. The Torx fastener will not come out completely, or fall into the door, because it has a retainer clip which holds it in place.



3) You should now be able the pull the lock mechanism out.



4) Carefully take a small flat screw driver and pry the plastic lock cover off.



5) Slide the front part of the handle back and out.



6) Insert the new door handle into the opening of the door, slide it forward, and into position.



7) Snap the new lock cover onto the lock mechanism.



8) Insert the lock mechanism into the door, and tighten the Torx fastener



9) Front door handle swap complete!



Thanks NDA for such a great/simple mod!

These black ones are very cool, but I have been considering going with white on the bezel and the handles. Does Toyota have a part number for a white handle assembly?

THey only make gray (FJC), black (Tundra), and chrome (Tundra) - no white is produced, so you are on your own, my friend...:)

HOW did I miss this thread? Black handles are just what I wanted! Need to check the part numbers on the first thread, but this doesn't look very hard/expensive at all - thanks!!!!

I just did my black door handles today. Took less than 10 minutes and looks great. Now I just need to do the side mirrors. BTW Larry Miller Toyota in Peoria has a set of these on hand. My parts guy ordered 2 sets.

So anyone selling their silver handles? A horse chewed on my passenger side one and scratched it up.

Save it for any upcoming monthly photo contests (i.e., "Livestock in your FJ," "Horsin' around in your FJ," "Increased FJ horsepower," etc.) :lol: :lol:


BTW, you can have my silver handles if you really need some. Drop me a PM with your address. :)
