grab handles

I know this has been covered before - but which grab handles do I need for the front (roll bar mount) to match the Rugged Ridge handles that I mounted on the speaker bar in the back and what size 3 inch or 2 inch? It does not look like Rugged Ridge makes any for the front roll bar.

Thanks

Do you know which ones match the Rugged Ridge handles that I mounted in the rear? I believe it is Master Craft but I'm not positive.

I don't have any on the rear. But I searched for the Rugged Ridge ones and saw a picture of the rear ones at JC Whitney. If that is what you are looking for- my front ones look just like those

Here's a crappy cell phone picture of mine



I picked those up on ebay for $30 delivered.

Most of the grab handles are made by the same company with different names on the packaging. I have "smitty built" on the front (3" works perfect) and another brand on the back using pre existing bolts. The rubber handle parts both look the same. Try eBay. You'll get great deals.

Yup, that's where I found mine. Only difference is instead of a Smitty Bilt or Rugged Ridge tag on it, it has "made in China"

And the others aren't? Don't bet on it. We've allowed our country to be a service oriented work force. Not to much left here for us to build. Even Maytag / Whirlpool, took its business to the 3rd world. Ok, off my soap box, sorry, wrong forum.

Oh I have no doubt these handles all come from the same place. Just the ones that Rugged Ridge, Mastercraft, etc sell, they have removed the "made in China" tag and replaced it with their own tag (and then up'd the price to cover the cost of that tag )

because you pasted the wrong code- you need to post the code that says "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards"


But your original is HUGE, so I'm not going to put it in this message

Sorry, I think those would only look ok on a red Jeep. Way too in your face. I like how the other ones look like they were meant to be there.
