Aluminum Grab Handle

I made this for my better half.
She didn't like the placement of the velco-on RR grab handle on the roll bar so I threw this together.
It's aluminum conduit. I bent it with a conduit bender.
Shaped it to bolt on to an existing bolt at the top of the A pillar and to the roll bar.

I had to cut a hole in the plastic trim piece and drill a hole (1/4") through the roll bar, but it was pretty simple and it's very sturdy.

I'll be honest. After seeing the first photo I was thinking holy ghetto mod. Then I was pleasantly surprised. Good work sir!

That turned out great! Okay, who did the welding? Torch and rod or wire feed/argon?

A guy that works for me grew up working in his families trailer/fab shop.

Everybody gives him their stuff when they need something welded.

I handed it to him and he gave it back to me the next day.

I have no idea how he welded it.

Looks good! One suggestion, a grommet in the hole makes for a more factory type look.
