Surprise Straps... Definitely a company to check out!

Got my order in today... Driving an almost stock 2012 Crush JKU, and ordered the full set of Surprise Straps grab handles in Crush/Black. Pics following:






Surprise Straps is gonna be an official vendor at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari starting next week, so if you find yourself up there, stop by and visit! As far as I can tell by my order, they make a VERY high quality Jeep product! I don't think they have a legit website, but you can order from their Facebook page directly which is what I did!

You got a veritable monkey playground there.

Kidding. They look great w/the color matching...

We LOVE our Safari Straps - they look great and they function quite well. We have a 2 door Crush Sahara and the same orange straps. (Also have the same stickers on our visor, too!)

Definitely recommend them!

Looks nice but way to many for my style. Like the others posted looks like a jungle gym. Are they expensive?

They are not cheap, but its just one guy hand making them. If it were me, I would probably charge about the same. They are really high quality. I was surprised how nice they were when I got them. Here is a screen capture of some of the pricing:

and as far as I can tell, you can only buy them through their facebook store, but it was easy and they actually shipped really fast!

I ordered a set of Surprise straps for all four doors to match my Blue Cosmos this weekend. His facebook page store didn't work for me for some reason (weird browser bug with OSX Lion) but he let me order them via email using Paypal.

I'm not sure how long it takes him to make them.

I'm sure it depends on how many orders he has but had made mine and shipped them the next day. He usually posts pictures on the facebook page when he completes an order.

Well his FB page said he was heading to the MOAB early Monday morning so I may have to wait a while.

I've been making my own with paracord but will say this guys pricing is fair. It takes a long time to get things right (the first time at least).

I already have the front pair; the rear pair and key fob I ordered shipped yesterday. I'll post pics of them installed.

Awesome product, more custom options than needed. Quality is tops. Pricing is fair.

Here's the pictures I mentioned. Note the invoice photo. Daryll treats his customers well. I will be buying more from him in the future.

They look very cool...but I would draw the line at hanging them on the back of my seat. I don't need someone pulling on the seat that I am sitting in.
