Front Rigid handle

Hi,

I just installed some new rigid handle available on the market (JK-Rigrip) on my JK.
My wife is only 5'2'' so she like it very much to get in the jeep.
I also appreciate them on my side when the doors are off and when offroading

The installation is easy, there are machined studs provided with the installation kit and all the necessary hardware. No permanent modification needed on the frame and the result is very rigid and strong.

I'm liking those better than the rollbar strap handle thingys I have now. That location for a grab handle is much better. Where did you find those?

Good solution if you want a more solid handle. Nice idea but a little pricey for my taste.

Also I'm not really crazy about the look, like a snake crawling out of the roll bar.

Actually they are plated with "quality textured rubber tubing".

For those who are interested,
Price has been adjusted to a more budget price.
