MasterCraft 683304 - 3" MasterCraft® Grab Handles - Quadratec

a good choice? guess the 3" is correct for the JK. looking for the fronts only.

I've had them for a couple of years, they've held up well. 3" is the right size.

The Rugged Ridge ones are almost identical from -amazon. I have a pair for fronts only. Works great!

I have them as well. They are a decent handle. One of mine had the velcro separating from the backer but, it was nothing a little super glue didn't solve (I am not much on taking stuff back if I can fix it myself).

Go with Surprise Straps which uses paracord. I like the location on the fronts with them because it uses on of the bolt locations. That way the strap is more toward the front and out of the way a little bit more. Check them out on Facebook. You have to buy off of their marketplace.

Custom colors Too.

Don't have a link handy, but eBay is the only place I found them. Search for rigid handle and they should pop up. I think they were asking 50, I offered 40 and they accepted. They come from Canada so shipping was a little pricey if I remember correctly. The back side attaches with a clamp so I was a little worried, but once installed it is invisible and rock solid. I could pull the jeep over with them if I was strong enough!

Did you have to cut any of the plastic pillars to get those to fit?

No, they are not like the other style out there that requires cutting, no modification of any kind necessary.

I have rugged ridge and both of the front straps, within less than 2 months of purchase have broken. The stitching that holds the grip in place around the rollbar straps have released and torn apart.

Junk.

I like 'em I bought 'em

These RIGRIP look like just the ticket for me. I was looking at the synergy but shipping on top of the price puts them a tad beyond what I feel they are worth. These look as stout, and I like that they are covered with a non slip grip, unlike the synergy ones I was looking at. Also the install looks much cleaner and simpler.
Thanks for the post on these.
