This is a very solid handle. It's well built and does the job. That being said, I don't like it very much. The straps for putting it on are very long and I had to almost double wrap around to get it on. More importantly, I scraped my knuckles on the center strap every time I put my hand into the handle. I don't have 'delicate' hands, but I found it very annoying. This is a good strap ... but not for me.

Jeep Rubicon Unlimited 2006
My 06 Rubicon Unlimited has a 4 inch lift which makes it a little harder for my passengers to get in the vehicle. I added these sport grips and they are perfect for that added support while getting in and also good to hold on to during off road trips. They are good quality and adjustable so you can move them as needed. Well worth the price!

solid but got in the way
Seemed like they would be good and sturdy. But, thanks to the location of other bars in the Jeep, There was no where to put them where I wouldn't hit my head on them. Returned them, probably should have got the ones that mount next to the windshield and speakers.

Good to have.
Pretty solid. Good styling. Nice to have a handle there. Also, the straps tighten down the flimsy roll bar cover so they don't move around.
Only small Issue would be that when you put a lot of downward force on it, the outside straps want to converge. This might require some occasional adjustment over time. Might be nice to have something of a stop gap kind of bar to hold the straps out.
Over all I'm glad I bought these.

Hold On Tight
Unfortunately these did not come with "How to Install" instructions and therefore took longer to install then what I thought. Actually, in the end, my Husband had to figured it out for me.

I put these in my CJ-7 with a 6" lift. Makes getting in and out of it so much easier. My wife loves them. They are super durable and look cool too.
