As the owner of a ZJ with factory running boards, I'd rather not stand on the door handles. With that said, I always used the handles to pull myself up when working underneath the Jeep.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

I stand on my rock sliders or tires...I could see a door handle breaking while I try and stand on it.

I put grip tape on my sliders so I can stand on them to access the top of my ZJ should I need to. I'd never stand on the handle. I'd be too afraid I'd break it off.

If my friend who weighs 280+/- lbs can stand on his ZJ's door handles, I think they're good to hold up my 145 lbs worth.

Depending on my intake/output for the day, I'm at about a buck fifty. I still don't trust them. Even if they don't break right away, you've got to be putting undue stress on them.

Yep, I have some grip tape on them. I need to reapply it, it's old.
