Interior A-Post Handle

Hello All,

A feature I miss from my 07 GMC, that is not in my '97 Crewcab, is that handle that is on newer rigs A-post that allows one to pull themselves in and up.

Has anyone ever taken such a handle from another rig and mounted in our older style trucks? I have looked at many different ways they are mounted and have yet to come up with a plan. The one that looks like it wouldn't be much trouble, is oddly out of a 2001 Volvo sedan (my daughter's college car). I see a lot of people mount gauges there, but I would like a handle. Would also put one the passenger side, my aging dad has a tough time getting in....and my truck is stock height.

Anyway, interested in your thoughts.

Thanks,

Shannon

My axle is actually a srw converted to a dually by steel spacers and bed was a srw but centurion cut them to fit dually flares it was cheaper for them to convert a srw 4x4 to a dually then a dually to 4x4
