Passenger side interior grab handle....

Postby thrashingcows » Sun Dec 20, 2015 10:42 pm

Needed to do this for a while now...wife has a hard time getting up into Ol' Patches.....;) I had rummaged through the archives of many site before i found a thread over on the DTR that made mention of a set-up I thought would work.

The grab handle is from a 2nd Gen ram...exact location and trim line I do not know. I hot a few wreckers locally but could not find it. I jumped on E-bay and found one within a few minutes.

Here is a pic of the unit....from the thread on DTR. (forgot to grab one of mine)

Image

First remove your trim and pillar cover. I used a spare unit...in OK shape..been dyed a few times and was warped a bit. I Did not want to cut up the nice grey unit (Hoarding for later). ;)

Then on the flat portion of the metal pillar decide where you want it located.

Image

Inner holes are 1/4" and the outer holes are for the screws. Next take a bunch of measurements and transfer those to your plastic cover. now grab some files and start working on them.

Should look something like this....

Then install the the plastic spacers to make sure they clear the trim.

Install the handle and screw it in place.

Then slide the covers over the end and clip them in place.

Before painting trim....

And after...

Will pull the handle later and paint it to match.

Looks like it belongs and should help those of less stature get up and into Ol' Patches. :D

Yup mine did too. ;) I also just got my step bars on, so now it's a lot easier for her to get up in the truck. :D

Last week we all went to dinner and the weather was bad so we took the truck. I laughed my ass off, my wife couldn't get in even with the grab handles. She has a bad foot so it doesn't flex right so she can't roll up to gain height, and I took the steps off when I redid the body and didn't put them back on. She was a little pissed when she finally got in..... :lol:
