Step 1:

Remove the (2) 8mm bolts (photo on right) in the inside upper-corner of the windshield frame, using a 13mm socket and ratchet. Use caution when removing the side bolt as it can easily fall behind the plastic cover during removal! We back out the bolt most of the way, and then use a pair of needle nose vise-grips to grab the bolt, and finish removing. (New bolts are provided with your order)


Step 2:

Install the short 8mm bolt through the top hole of the handle, then through the short spacer. Tighten the bolt with the handle and spacer into the upper hole of the windshield frame (Do not tighten! Only turn it in a couple of threads). Then place the long spacer onto the side hole of the windshield frame and add the long 8mm bolt through the handle, and through the long spacer. Tighten the bolt until it’s almost tight. Now tighten the upper bolt and torque to 300 in-lbs using a 6mm hex wrench. Then tighten the side bolt to 300 in-lbs using a 6mm hex wrench. We use a short 3” long hex wrench and tighten it as hard as we can.

NOTE: Make sure you have the left handle for the left side, and the right-handle for the right side. This is determined by the counter sunk holes for the side bolts.



Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the other side.

Rear JK 2d and 4d GraBars Handle Installation Instructions:

Step 1:

Remove the (2) 6mm bolts on the bottom side of the roll bar using a 10mm socket.

Step 2:

Install the rear handle with the bend facing the front of the Jeep using the 2 M6 bolts supplied with your order. It works best if you install the front bolt first only putting it in a few turns, then install the rear bolt and using a 5mm hex wrench, tighten both bolts to 120 in-lbs of torque.


Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the other side.
