Jeep Grab Handles

Part #: 82211740

Jeep actually makes some really nice grab handles to assist you in getting into the Jeep. Or just for holding on when you are on the trails. Though I don't recommend holding onto the drivers, you should be holding onto the wheel. They come as a pair, so you will need two packs if your doing the front and the rear like I did. Probably more important on a 4 door JK than the 2 door. Installation is straight forward, you just need to pick the mounting point. I did find that you can hit your head on the fronts as you get in, so I just rotate them up if I'm on the road.

Here is what's in the plastic bag. I didn't take a photo of Jeeps lovely picture drawing installation guide, though it's actually pretty good (simple). The grab handle is nice and firm and all the stitching is well done. Even has Jeep embroidered on the strap.
Quick demonstration on how the strap threads through the buckle. In the back and then back though the front hole.
Start with one end of the handle and loop it over the roll bar and thread it through the buckle. No need to pull it really tight at this point.
Now repeat the above step on the other end and pull them both tight.
Here is what they look like on the front and the rear. The rear needs to contend with the sound bar towards the front, so they sit more to the rear of the seat. Perfect for holding on, not that great for getting in. Though my son grabbed it and swung out of the Jeep on it. Guess that was a good test for the buckles.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
