Flipping Full door handles around

Anyone know if this is possible? I thought at first mine where installed wrong, but looking at mulitple pictures, ive seen that handles are mounted both ways.

Currently mine Open by pulling the outside handle towards the front of the jeep (Open, non handle end is aft), and I would like them to open the opposite way. Before I start ripping my panels off, I want to make sure this is possible first.

Thanks.

Nope, can't be done or I would have done it by now. Older Jeeps had them work in the more desirable direction but for some non-understandable reason they changed it.

Thats too bad, thanks Jerry! I guess that saves me a little heartache.

I'm glad you posted this. When I first bought my Jeep I thought they were positioned in an uncomfortable direction. It's one of those things you just get used to over time.

I never noticed it until I switched to soft doors which the handles are in the opposite direction
