Are any of them any better than the others? They all seem to be a similar design, just different prices. I turned up a bunch of posts with people saying they installed "X" brand of them, but not really any reviews.

I have Raingler grab handles. www.raingler.com
The price was good and I like how the entire wrap around is a cuff as opposed to straps. This is a stronger method IMO.

I just got the Quadratec wrap around ones. They seem sturdy. The problem is that they are too far toward the middle of the bar. I have to maneuver my head around my arm every time I get in or out using them. The bill of my baseball cap also hits them if I look to the left while driving. Something that mounts at the front corner would work much better for me.

On our TJ's my daughter has the Rainglers and I have some unknown brand. I would highly recommend the Rainglers as well. I will likely replace mine with Raingler at some point as I don't really trust them as much when actually using them to support some of my weight.

Personally, I went for the Rugged Ridge bolt-ons for the sound bar and windshield pillars. (can't do better than bolting on)
I like the cuff concept better for the handles if you are wrapping them. It spreads the holding force out better.

Jeep grab handles, my Dealer threw them in as part of the purchase. I didn't even know until I got home and found them.

Some bolt on options



I think these above look cool LINK -->Poly Performance JEEP/ Jeep JK, TJ, LJ, YJ Grab Handles. They require a bit of cutting and I wonder if that would cause some leak issues.

Below is a picture of some rugged ridge ones that I found HERE the picture link comes from www.autotrucktoys.com I cannot find them on the rugged ridge or autotrucktoys.com site. I think they must have been discontinued.

Yeah something like that 2nd picture would be awesome. The metal ones in the first aren't bad, but yeah I'm looking for "bolt" on not cut and fab to fit and hope you don't screw anything up.

The Jeep-branded strap-style ones are still useful though.
I have one keeping a blanket rolled up in my oh sh17 kit.

(Didn't really NEED the carry handle for a blanket per se, but it works for keeping it wrapped up tight.)

I just went with the Surprise Straps today, im psyched. The Mopar ones unfortunately hang too far towards the middle of the cabin
