just made some grab handles

Not perfect by any means...but thats how I like it, which makes them perfect for me!!!
(and they are stronger than they look) I am about 5'10" and about 205lbs and I can stand on the step rail and hold onto the rope while leaning back and it hold me fine.
parts:
1. 1 x 100 ft red rope from lowes (shortest they had)
2. Scissors
3. Lighter

cut the rope to desired length, knot rope, burn the rope to attach to itself as extra security...

Just sayin, this is not a write up, but I just thought it was pretty awesome and the best part, I can make all four plus I can make one for the back and still have enough to do about 8 more jeeps lol!

Go get some black ABS pipe, cut to length and run the rope through, and you could have solid handles in the middle too...

Nah I intentionally didnt put the pipe on them, I like them the way I have them, I wanted something different, and they work really well for me, im happy with them how they are, but I see your point on the pipe, but I liked this way myself, but hey everyone has their own right? lol
