Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Smittybilt Extreme Sport Handles, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers. Today, we're going to talk through the installation of these handles, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. This is going to take less than five minutes to strap onto your sport cage, and we'll talk a little bit more about that install in just a second. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of these grab handles. When you decide you want to get a set of grab handles to make it easier to get in and out of your lifted or even stock-height Wrangler, first you have to decide whether you want a metal grab handle or a fabric grab handle. I personally really like a metal grab handle, because they're very, very solid. However, they are going to be significantly more expensive than a fabric handle, and the install is going to be a lot more involved. Once you decide that you like a fabric grab handle, they're all going to be pretty much the same. Some of them will have a slightly different material on the handle itself, whether that be neoprene or plastic, like these ones. Some are two straps versus three. But most of them are going to be very, very similar. I really like these in particular, because they don't go overboard with the branding. They just have a small Smittybilt tag on them. They are fairly priced, and they're just going to do their job. As far as the construction goes, these are a three-strap grab handle, which does give them a little bit more strength and security than the two-strap handles that are out there. These use a hook and loop fastener to go around the sport cage through a plastic clip, and fasten back onto themselves again. The handles themselves do have a rubberized plastic material on them, which gives them a little bit more substantial feeling when you're grabbing onto it, gives you something that you can really grab and pull on without feeling like it's going to bend and flex in your hand. Like I said, there are a lot of grab handles out there on the market that are going to be very similar to these. They're all going to work pretty much the same, and they're all going to be right around the same price. As far as the install goes, as I said, this is a very simple one out of three wrenches. This is going to take you less than 15 minutes to get these installed on your sport cage. All you need to do is peel back the Velcro, wrap it over the sport cage, through the plastic clips, and back onto itself, and you're finished. In about 15 minutes, you're going to have a secure grab handle that'll make it easier to get in and out of your Jeep. These are what I consider to be a pretty basic grab handle, and they come in at right around $20 for the pair, which is exactly where they should be priced. There are other ones out there that are right around the same price. Some maybe a little bit more if they have a different material on the handle, like a neoprene grab handle. Of course, as I said before, the steel handles are going to be significantly more expensive than these. But for a basic fabric grab handle, I think these are fairly priced. So if you're looking for a simple, basic, and inexpensive grab handle to make it easier for you and your passengers to get in and out of your Wrangler, I think this is going to be a really nice option. So that's my review of the Smittybilt Extreme Sport Handles, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Usefulness. Smittybilt Extreme Sport Handles provide a firm grip for ultimate balance when you're driving through rough, uneven trails. They also provide extra support for getting in and out of the vehicle easily.

Durable Construction. These roll bar handles are made of high-quality outdoor-grade fabric for long-lasting use. They are weather-resistant and feature soft outer wraps for a comfortable grip.

Application. These Smittybilt grab handles fit all Jeep Wrangler models. Installation is a breeze with their triple strip hook and loop attaching straps. Just fasten them to the 2 or 3-inch sport bar of your vehicle with the strap attachments.

I just had a person try to get in my jeep while grabbing the passenger side of one of these. It broke. It is 2-3 years old. Very dangerous. How long are these supposed to last? I have 3 others in my jeep.

  • The Smittybilt Extreme Sport Handles are designed as a long term component, however a number of variables can effect the lifespan of the handles, such as how often they are used and how much weight is applied, exposure to sunlight and other elements, temperature, etc.

    Easy to install

    These grab handles are a good buy in comparison to the price of some others. They are very easy to install and look good on the jeep. The only negative about these handles (which actually has nothing to do with the handles themselves) is that the installation involves Velcro strapped over the foam that covers the bars. My fabric covered foam that protects the bar slides around and given that the grab bars are on top of the foam, they slide also. I wouldn't say that is causes any safety issues, it's just annoying how it bunches up.

    Sport Handles

    Bought the handles a few days a go and loaded the jeep up with some friends and hit the trails, I have no issues so far and they are fairly cheap for how well they are made.

    Handy handles

    My wife has MS and very little leg coordination or strength left. She uses these handles to get in and out of jeep much easier than factory handle on dash.

    I placed my handles forward close to the sun visor. They work great no more bumping my head when getting in and out. They don't sag when pulled on.

    Handles

    Well... When I almost (and I mean almost) rolled the jeep, the handles kept me upright, in fact, I threw my weight on my side hard and held on for a fulcrum point. They didn't budge and we didn't go over. Great strength and a good grip at the same time. Highly recommended.

    good grip and they hold fast

    I bought them because of the name Smittybilt. And, they were easy to install and I pull my 290 pound body into my lifted TJ every day and have not had to adjust them after the install. worth the money

    Great Handles!

    As you probably know by now if you have recently purchased a jeep they do not come with handle grips. The Smittybikt Extreme Sport Handles quickly and easily fix this problem. Very affordable and easy to install.

    Easy enterence

    Makes for a more enjoyable enterence on a stock jeep. I'm sure that it will save the seat cover from early wear and tear.

    Smith grab straps

    The front two I had to remove the front section of the top to install. The back two were no problem. No directions at all came with these things. It took me a few different attempts to get them on correctly. Great product simple stout construction too. They look cool as well.

    These are great!

    Look, fit, price all excellent. The old one had a plastic ring to hold the grab-handle to the velcro attachment rig. The plastic piece broke. These new ones have metal rings, so much stronger. Highly recommend, as well as the purchasing experience.
