Front Seat grab handles for jeep liberty kk

I don't know why liberty kk doesn't come with front seat grab handles like they have in the back seats. Sucks. Anybody mod theirs or know anything that can be installed?

Obviously he knows there is one on the glove box.
I think the reason there isn't one "up top" has something to do with the side air bag if I'm not mistaken.

Haha. Thanks. And duh everyone for the record yes! There is one in front of the glove box!!! I don't think we need any more confirmations

Just asking why like other cars/ SUVs / crossovers the liberty doesn't have the grab handles "up top".

Maybe Jeep didn't think we'd actually do things that would require us to want one.

found something yesterday that might be another reason why there are not top handle, like other car:

Many people assume that Jeep interior grab bars are only good for keeping the passenger stable, but one of their other primary functions is to keep the passengers arms inside the vehicle. In off road situations roll overs are not uncommon. One of the most dangerous things that can happen during a roll over is for the passenger to flail their arms. This is a natural instinct if you do not have anything to hold onto, but the problem is the passenger's flailing arms often end up out the window or out the door cut-outs, and can end up being crushed by the weight of the vehicle when it rolls on its side. The addition of Jeep interior grab bars is a great way to make sure that you keep your arms safe inside the vehicle.
