KrawlOff-Road.com Nice! Any pictures?

WD just did a re-design on the front mounting. So, they are easier to install. Glad you like them!

cnhmatthews I took the plunge and couldn't be happier with the handles. The rears fit great and aren't in the way at all. I had read some posts where people have had trouble lining up the bolts of the front. Mine went together very easily with no problems whatsoever. Just a tip if you buy these with the rubber slip-on grips, keep the palm of your hand over the hole on the rubber grip when you're forcing them on. The pressure seems to help "open them up" so they'll slide on easier. Even with a little soap I was having trouble with the first one until I realized that plugging that vent hole was the way to go.

KrawlOff-Road.com We are a Welcome dealer and have not heard of any complaints or issues with anyone getting in and out of the rear with the handles. All the feedback we have gotten from these is that they are great!

nwbronco We had the kid make some paracord handles that attach to the headrest posts. Great handle for getting in the back on the missus 2Dr and my 4DR.

cnhmatthews The rears bolt to the underside of the sound bar. Here's a pic from their website:

I'd appreciate any feedback before I pull the trigger on a full set (I don't really like the looks of the headrest handles or sound bar ones for the back).
I did not even know there was a back set for a 2dr. I just have the two in the front.
