Wild Boar Grab Handle Install

A Pillar Grab Handle: A Must-Have for Jeep Enthusiasts

Getting into a lifted Jeep can be challenging without the proper grab handles. The ones on the roll bars often don't provide enough assistance. However, these A pillar grab handles are a game-changer for both drivers and passengers.

Popular Among Jeep Owners

Many Jeep owners, including myself, refer to these handles as "Oh Shit" handles. When you are in a sketchy situation you need to grab hold of them.

They are a common sight in the Jeep community in many different variety. They looked like an easy installation. I even found a helpful installation video on YouTube that made the process seem straight forward. 👉 Watch Here

The Installation Process: Easier Said Than Done

While the installation process appeared simple in the video, I encountered some difficulties. The steps involved inserting a bolt through the handle into the standoff, then lining up the bolt with the holes on the A pillar. It seemed easy, but aligning the bolts was a real challenge.

This is what a lot of Youtubers do. They make it look easy when really it's not. I have heard from several others who bought these and had the same issue. They are worth the struggles though.

My Installation Experience

After two hours of jiggling, maneuvering, and some frustration, I finally managed to align the bolts and secure the handles. It was a tough process, but the end result was worth the effort. The handles are now securely in place and provide excellent support when getting into the Jeep.
