Saw a yellow jeep in Morrison,CO today with a yellow painted hardtop. I could swear I saw it on this forum. Lots of jeeps out here. Visiting my girlfriends brother in Parker.

I want grab handles exactly like those. The first set.

Order some paracord and go on youtube and watch some videos. Its pretty easy, but very time consuming. The wrap I used for the front grab handles is called cobra or king cobra. Lots of videos on youtube on how to tie this knot.

Instructables.com was OK I guess but i like to watch someone do it rather than see pictures of it. Maybe I was in the wrong section but I felt that the many vids on youtube were more informative than the instructables.com site. just my opinion.

One more question....do you need to do this clevis pin mod to the rear sway bar as well?

Those look great! Can't find anywhere to order them online. You should buy thousands and sell them on Ebay.

Or just ship me a few. Ha!!

Is the threaded part long enough to go all the way through the hinge?

It's been a while since I've seen good use of truck bed liner so I made my own door entry guards.
