Grab Handles

I have looked all around at grab handles and all I can find are the ones that velcro on around roll cage---I noticed there are two holes on the pillar near the windshield on the top--do they make a grab handle that bolts in to those bolts? or is there another option other than the velcro grab handles?? let me know and if you have pics of what you have post em up please!!

I've always used these. I've never had a problem with em. They've supported all 190lbs of me and never let me down, literally. LOL.



Is it the look that you don't like or the reliability?

Ya, I have 4 of them as well and they aren't that brand in the picture but they're similar. Probably the same ones you have.

I like these!!! Does anyone have these? Like or dislike? any other info?

I just read the install instructions and you have to trim some of your interior pieces to get them to work--I dont like that.

Is there any other company or website that sells something like this--


if so post the link please

You might have to go with the softie velcro ones then. Those are the only "hard" handles I know of. But one thing I can tell you is that poly performance is a huge name in 4x4 so as far as quality and fit they should be perfect.

I really like them too.

I have recently been through a handle swap of my own.
I had Rugged Ridge handles that were fantastic but finally wore out after about four years of heavy use.
Then I swapped a set to a fellow club member (they were red)

for a set of black Smittybuilts.

They were TERRIBLE. They stretched way out and the handles slipped around on the straps. Lightweight materials.

So I started shopping once again and ended up buying the Corbeau handles. $39

They are fantastic. They have a little softer rubber in the grip, STRONG straps and are all the way around heavier than either of the other two but the Rugged Ridge was a very close runner up and $10 cheaper.

I thought about doing a whole write up and product review, but I got lazy.

One thing that's nice about the flexable handles is that when you grab them to pull yourself up, they have a little give, like the stirrup on a saddle. It helps to keep your balance. You can also position them right where you want them to be. Some folks put them way to the front, others to the rear. I put mine in the middle so I can hold on when I'm on the trail.

Otherwise, when you have them in black, all you ever really see is the handle hanging down, the rest is pretty much on top of the roll bar.

I hate it when the images turn into little red Xs!
Which is WHY we need to be able to edit posts when we need to.

So that I could fix the silly thing.

I got the Mopar ones,, really thought these would be cool,, but. When I grab them,, my elbow is below the window rail,, kinda pointless.

Plus it will smack you in the head each time you get in and out of your Jeep.

I do like the coat hanger one for the back roll bars. Easy to hook stuff in it.

God made your arms too long nothing that a sawsall can't solve.

Or you could invest in half doors. That would lower the window pane.

That's because the doors are not supposed to be there.

It should be easy enough to come up with some kind of padding for them, but I think that might be the least of your concerns in a rollover. If you're strapped in it would be tough to make contact with them. Have you bumped your head on the rollbar yet? I have. Trust me that padding might as well not be there.

I have a pair of these worked great on my TJ roll bar but aren't long enough to wrap around to fit the JK.

Maybe use that black foam padding they put on the copper plumbing pipes in houses and buildings.

I've heard a lot of good about these. I think I'm going to order them before too long. They are padded and much cheaper than the Poly Performance ones.

USAntigoon, glad you like them. I really just need to pull the trigger on them. Did you get them through Ebay, same as my above link? Did you get rear ones too?

No, I only got the front ones, my wife had issues getting into the Jeep after the lift...This is THE solution without being in your way whilst climbing into the Jeep... I believe I ordered them through Ebay.

P.S Buying for your Jeep is an "automatic" .. Just "pull" the trigger once...

If you look on page 85 of the summer quadratic catalog they have the ones that bolt into the holes in the front or the back seats over the doors
