Default Re: Grab Handles

Looking forward to it

I'm hoping it's easy enough to get that handle on, it won't cost too much to buy the new parts (it seems) it's just that single point of "manufacturing" that the question hangs over.

MaDMaXX, I added the grab handles to my 2000 Ranger I used the existing holes in the "A" pillar & installed riv nuts & used bolts to hold the metal brackets to the body. Just hold the metal brackets up to the body & you will see which holes will work.

That's reassuring, though now i can't remember if there was something stupid about certain years in this range. I have to assume all have the holes.

I don't suppose you have any details on the rivnuts needed for this?

IIRC I used the #8-32 riv nuts. Here is the link to the "A" pillar install I wrote up. The pics in the install are blocked by photobucket, if you need pics let me know & can PM them to you or repost them in the install thread.
How to install A pillar grab handles.
