    I am thinking about handles inside the door to pull on to get into the K/5. Our 96 Suburban has a handle on the pass side of the windshield piller and wife likes that one. But the K/5 has nothing for handles and is not going to get running boards. Any ideas.

    I was thinking about going to the salvage yard and seeing if I could get a couple of those suburban handles and mount them into the 87 K/5.

    Any other ideas.

    Got a roll bar or cage? Skyjacker and Smittybilt, among prolly others, make grab handles that velcro onto a bar or cage.

    What you want is caled a "Jesus bar" or an "Oh-s&&t handle" in some circles, cuz it's what she says as she grabs onto it for deal life during interesting maneuvers :haha:

    I would think you could just go to the hardware store and get a big drawer pull handle, mount it to the inside of the A pillar with sheet metal screws and call it good.

    Since I have no top and limited sheetmetal, I am going the route of the velcro handles, especially when I go full cage.

    you can get screw on handled but i wouldent do that, my buddy have them on his ford and they are rusting out and the holes are starting to ruct, he regrets them.

    i think you idea about rapeing handles off a sub is a good one, happy hunting
