I was supplied with one lonely mopar grab handle in my glove box when I got my jeep. It's on the passanger side for my lady is short and has tiny legs. I really like the Jeep labeled grab handles enough to see if I can find more at a parts counter. What brand are those Caso, they look sturdy with 3 straps.

These are made by Smittybilt. Yes, they fit VERY snug. The pair cost me $19.99.

Grab handles definately do come in handy. Be sure to add a flashlight as well, always a good thing to have and another cheap mod!

The dealership hooked me up with 4 of em when I bought my Jeep. I'm not using em. You want em, they're yours.

Black (look just like the one in the OP's photo, but skinnier straps), with "JEEP" stitched in white on one of the straps. My guess is they're Mopar made.

Got one of these! Guess this is my second modification by your standards.

LED Side Strip


LED Front


Laser Pointer



Not sure what the laser pointer will do for me on the road/trail, but the LED's on the flash light are BRIGHT. This is a Smittybilt flash light. And there is a magnet on the other end...which is pretty cool.

Logistics? PM me a shipping address, I'll box em up and send em to you. Jeeper to Jeeper. No charge. Doesn't get any simpler.

You want just 3, or all 4?

I won't be home till this weekend, though. Not sure exactly when. But I should be able to get em out by Monday at the latest.

I have the same handles though I found that they were a little too far to the center and blocking my view (very little, but annoying). I took the front strap and put it in front of the most forward "L-bracket" tie down point. It took a little messing with but its now more forward and now gives me a little better sight and better position to rest my hand.

I've been prepping myself for the day I wake up and see cobwebs in my wallet.
