    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Grabars grab handles available for all 2007-2016 JK 's. There is a set of these available for the front of either your two or your four door that's going to be the same set. But there's also a set of all four grab handles for the front and rear of your Jeep available and those are going to be a little bit different for the two door and for the four door. So, make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. All of these Grabars grab handles ship with both black grips but there are different colors available on the website. These are for those of you who want to make it a little bit easier to get in and out of your stock or lifted height JK. These are also great to grab onto and be able to stabilize yourself when your bouncing along a bumpy trail off-road. Now these are definitely going to feel much more secure than the fabric grab handles that are available on the market. However, these are also are going to be a little bit more expensive. So, it just comes down to what you want for your Jeep. These grab handles are made of 3/4 inch solid steel bar and they're covered in a textured black powder coat. As we mentioned before, these do come with the black Grabar grips but some other colors are available on the website. These come with all the hardware that you need to get them installed on the Jeep and all of that hardware is going to be grade 12 bolts. As you can see these are going to be incredibly solid and in my opinion they're probably even over built for just a grab handle. But they do give you a really solid feel when you grab onto them and get in and out of the Jeep. There's no chance of them turning, rotating, or worse case scenario with some of those fabric handles un-Velcroing and coming off. These are designed to be completely bolt on and installation is pretty easy. If you've been doing some research some people have had a little bit of trouble getting these installed but there are a couple of steps that you can take to make the installation smooth and easy and get it done in under a half an hour. Now the first step is to remove the torque bolt that is in the a-pillar of the Jeep. Once that bolt is removed you can remove the bolt from the sun visor area and then go to installing your front Grabar handle. Now, the bolt in the a-pillar can want to fall down into the trim piece so stuffing something like a paper towel or a small rag between the trim and the a-pillar will insure that once that bolt comes out it doesn't fall down and keep you from having to fish around and find it. Once those two bolts are removed it's a good idea to run a tap through those holes with a good cutting oil. Jeep uses a good bit of Thread-Locker on those bolts for some unknown reason and you certainly don't want to cross-thread any of your new bolts. If you clean out those bolt holes thoroughly it will make installing your new Grabars very, very easy. As I mentioned, these come with all hardware and the spacers that you need to get them installed and they'll bolt right up. Now, if you get these installed and you find that your sun visor hits your front grab handle when you try to flip it to the down position, there is something that you can do for that as well. If you remove the grab handle that you just installed and put a longer bolt inside of the nut-cert that's in the a-pillar, you can bend that nut-cert just a little bit, re-install the grab handle and give you the clearance to flip down the sun visor unimpeded. It looks like the way that those nut-certs were welded from the factory, they're not really consistent. Some people will have the clearance issue and others people don't. So, if you have the clearance issue don't worry you can certainly take care of it and there are very clear instructions on how to do that on Grabars website. As I mentioned, this whole installation process shouldn't take you more then 30 minutes and that's with cleaning out all of your bolt holes as long as you have a good sharp tap and die set handy and ready to go. You're going to pay close to $200 per set of four Grabars grab handles for either your two door or your four door JK., and to a lot of you guys that seems excessive. Especially when you figure you get a full set of fabric ones for under $30 or even less then that. But when you use a solid metal grab handle like this versus the fabric one it is so much more of a secure feeling and that's why a lot of people are spending their money on these grab handles. In my opinion the feel using a solid metal grab handle is definitely worth the extra money over the fabric ones if you have it in the budget. So, if you're looking to add something to grab onto to make it easier for you and your passengers to get in and out of your lifted or stock height JK, I definitely recommend taking a look at the Grabar grab handles. They're going to be more expensive then a fabric set of grab handles however they give you a much more secure feel and in my opinion they're worth the extra money. So, that's my review of the Grabar handles available for all 2007-2016 JK's that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Looking around, I find similar items for 1/3 to 1/4 the price. What is the difference that makes these worth the extra money?

    • The GraBars Front Handles are made of solid steel for the ultimate in safety and durability, unlike many of their competitors who utilize tubular (hollow) steel, and these will be powder coated compared to many lower end versions which are only painted.

      Should be easy...

      The GraBars are sturdy and well built. Installation is another matter. The instructions recommend oiling the new bolts to be used and run them in and out of the welded nuts on the A pillar to remove the thread lock material - DO THIS! However, finding the correct position to thread a 8mm X 100mm Allen head bolt with a spacer and bar in place is easier said than done! It only takes about a quarter turn before you are starting to cross-thread. The position of the bolts have to be extremely precise! I stripped one and had to use a tap - with a vice grip attached - because the handle to the tap does not have enough clearance with the windshield in place. What should have taken 15 minutes took and hour, with lots of sweat (I live in AZ) and foul language!

      Getting a grip

      The GraBars front hand grips are a great improvement for a Jeep. They are SOLID, unlike the Velcro style flexible straps that are in the wrong place. Easy to install in existing threaded mounts but use thread locker for security. Location is perfect for easy entry, driver or passenger side. No more pulling on the steering wheel! A great and necessity accessory.

      Great product!

      Grabars are a needed addition to any jeep! They are very sturdy and up out of the way. The drivers side was a little difficult to install, as the bolt that went into the A-pillar was very difficult to line up.

      Great bars for pulling yourself into the jeep

      these are really well made and smartly designed, bolt solidly into the jeep and are in a good place to not to impede movement or vision. I don't love the url engraved on the both sides of the grip, but not a big deal for the overall performance.

      Grabars

      Took a little muscle to install the GraBars due to the epoxy used by Jeep, but once installed they look and perform great. They have a good solid feel. Worth the time and effort.

      Wife loves them...

      The GraBars work perfectly. I installed them without my wife knowing and the first time she got in, she reached right for them. That to me is a natural fit. The photos do not do justice. While they appear to stick out a bit they do not. Price is a bit high and it took a bit to line up the bolts, but it all worked out great.

      Bomb Proof

      These are the real deal. Doesn't get more solid! Brutal to put in because of the lock tight on the stock bolts, but once they're in, they're fantastic.

      Solid Grip

      Solid grip that helps you get in to your Jeep. It's in the right spot. I tried the overhead soft grips and they were just not in the right spot to help me climb in. My Jeep has 3 1/2 " lift with 37's and these grab bars feel solid and make getting in and out easy !
