I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Enhanced Deluxe Grab Bar Handles for the all 1987 to 2017 Wranglers. Today we're gonna talk about the instruction and the installation of these grab bar handles. Now these are available as a set for just the front of your Jeep in either black, that you see here, or in red. Or they're available in a set of five pieces in black that will also include some handles for the rear of your JK and one that goes in the center on the sound bar. Having a set of grab bar handles like this will make it easier to get in and out of your stock or lifted JK and because these are the enhanced deluxe version, they have a couple more straps and some more material, which make them a little bit more secure than the traditional deluxe version from Rugged Ridge. Now there are a lot of grab handles out there that are exactly like these ones, everything from Barricade to Smittybilt to a lot of other brands and honestly they're all very similar. They're going to work similarly. They're going to look similarly. So it comes down to price, style and if you have a brand that you prefer. A lot of these again are a very similar style. They're going to be similarly priced. So if you have an affinity to the Rugged Ridge brand or you just like these for some particular reason, they're a great set of grab handles. There's nothing wrong with them. However there isn't much that distinguishes them from a lot of the other grab handles on the market. These grab bar handles are adjustable, so they'll fit either a two- or a three-inch roll bar, which is why you can run them on a YJ, a TJ, all the way up through a JK. Because these are the enhanced deluxe, they do have three different straps that go along the roll bar and they have a large flat piece of material that goes on the top of the roll bar. Again, these are just designed to be as secure as possible. The deluxe version of these only has one strap on them and it doesn't have that larger piece of material, just makes them a little bit more flimsy. These are of course going to be a little bit more expensive than the deluxe version, but all in all, a set of two of these are only around 25 bucks. They're going to be inexpensive. They're right around the same price range as a lot of other ones on the market. Again, there's nothing wrong with these and they'll work just fine. Now there are grab bar handles out there that are metal. They'll actually bolt onto the Jeep and in my opinion, they're much more secure and I prefer using those over a fabric handle like this one. However those are going to be a lot more expensive, the installation's going to be more involved and if you're not careful, they can be a bit of a headbanger. So it really comes down to what you want on your Jeep.Getting these installed on your Jeep is going to be very, very simple. You have some Velcro that you'll need to pull apart, pull the strap through the plastic loop, put the strap over top of your roll bar, back through the plastic loop and Velcro it back onto itself. If it takes you 15 minutes to install a pair of these, it took you a long time and you won't need any tools to get it done. So if you're looking for a set of grab handles and you prefer the soft version over a metal version and you want the enhanced deluxe additional straps that are offered from this set versus Rugged Ridge's deluxe, which have one less strap, this is a really nice option. As I mentioned a couple of times already, these are very similar to a lot of other grab handles on the market. They're all going to work and they're all going to be priced similarly. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Enhanced Deluxe Grab Bar Handles for the all 1987 to 2017 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Jim H, 2010 Jeep Wrangler JKWeb Development My dad would always take me trail riding in the Pine Barrens as a kid when I lived in South Jersey, so I’ve always been into four wheel drive trucks and Jeeps. When the time came for me to get a vehicle, I picked up an old Cherokee. I still have that old Jeep strictly for offroading, but after a few...
