Passenger assit bars/handle for 1998 5.9

Is there any way to retrofit a grab bar on the post between the windshield or door or above the passenger or driver's door? There are assist handles/bar above the back doors. My wife would like a place to grab when getting in the vehicle.

I bought an early 2000's Ram grab handle in slate from the dealer along with some nutserts. Get extra ones. They suck to install. It was a pretty easy install over all though. Just pull the A piller cover off. decide where you want it on the A piller. Drill two holes for the nutserts. Drill two holes in the cover to match the holes just drilled & use some long interier screws & it's done.

Someone did the writeup on this site years ago but I've never been able to find it. It gave part #'s & everything.
