Grab handle question

Does any body know of any aftermarket ones to replace the factory one inside the cab, or some kind of extension to add to it. My little girl even with the sliders can barely reach the handle and she actually fell out the other day trying to get in, so was just wondering if there was any options with out lowering the sliders, or truck, lol.

They don't stay little very long. Just give her a boost.

Get a belt or rope and make a handle that will adjust.

Thats what I'd recommend as well. I'd suggest putting in a piece of plastic tube of some sort to stop the handle from closing in when using it as well. Cheap, easily removed, and works.

If you really want something made to do it, EK Accessories makes a ton of different handles and other things (http://www.ekusa.com) I'm sure you'll be able to find something that'll work.

Oh you mean the OH SHIT HANDLES. yea i do not believe they make aftermarket ones. only OEM style.
that would be pretty cool to make your own with a rope, plastic, etc...
then you can make a write up for it and call it the "oh shit handle mod"
