Grabbers came.... installed :)



For a novice these were much easier to install than the instructions made it out to be. Wow, they look great, strong and pretty easy. Great combination.

Oh, GraBars...not Grabbers...

Nice!

PS: you mounted the rear ones backwards... The handle goes against the trailing edge of the B-pillar to aid entry.

Looks great! The red adds a little splash of color.

Ha... I was expecting to see a set of General Grabbers tires not GraBars! Look good, like the splash of red. I have all black and wish I would have got the red now. And my set did NOT come with any instructions.

And aldo is correct, you have the back ones reversed, unless you like them that way. Normally they handle faces towards the front.

Sorry. that gave me a chuckle. Looks like something I would have done.

I had a buddy over this weekend I hadn't seen in years. We went to get some beer and pizza in my Jeep. Would not shut up about the GraBars. He really thought they were great.

Enjoy! Who knows maybe you have the rears in Correct and we all are backwards

I'm sure that's not the case. I'm a computer geek so normally a keyboard is my tool

Well, I had a quick trip to NYC. Got off a Red Eye and the first thing I did when I got home is fix them. The world is a better place now they are installed the right way.

Very nice! I'll probably add some to mine now.

Has anyone found an especially great price on these? I'm seeing $175 for the front/back set everywhere.

They weren't cheap - I saw the ones that some people get off Amazon and they look just as good. I didn't want ALL RED thought I think the black with the splash of red looks better. I'm going for a Black Jeep with Red and Chrome Accent color look.

First thing I installed in my new Jeep was a pair of these. Well, actually, I bought a pair of the all-red Opar brand -- $50 cheaper and same build quality. They look (and work) great with my Firecracker red Willys!
