Paracord Grab handles ~ how to make your own. here is my thread on making them. there is no You Tube video specifically for making them, sorry. I tried to make some step by step instructions and make them as easy as possible with loads of pictures.

Manlier is in how you see it. i bought my 97TJ and the guy i bought it from put '10 rubi rims and tires on it along with the front bumper. i thought it looked cool. also he had it painted from the orginal dark green to a blue...not any blue but mini cooper electric blue...now i have removed the bumper and put the tube front and rear bumpers on nerf bars and it also has a light bar. i also plasti-diped the rims black....pic to come.

Sometimes "ill bite my tongue" is worse than just saying whats on your mind and being honest.

I don't hate them but I also don't love them. I don't have the money for new bumpers yet. probably wont have enough till I'm out of highschool too.

Here's the deal.
They DO look pretty and it's YOUR Jeep, you should do whatever you want to make it your own.

Personally, I wouldn't buy them but fifteen/twenty years ago I might have because I didn't know any better.

Now that I know better, I might have to tease you a bit but it's never intended as anything mean spirited.

What the heck, you may as well buy them. Once you get it all figured out, you'll be buying something else. It's good for the economy.

It's not the paint that makes it look like weak sauce, it's how you choose to accessorize it.

Not good:



Much better!

So thats the first time I have heard anyone use the term "weak sauce" outside of a PVP MMORPG. Made me LOL, thanks for that!
