grab handles for inside the OBS?

I have owned my crew cab OBS since '97 (new), and I have never had luck finding accessory grab handles to help mount up. My wife has never liked the fact there is nothing to grab onto- plus, I am planning on mounting the 3-pod gauge package on the A-pillar. Does anyone out there know about interior mounted aftermarket handles that will actually hold up/ pics of installs would be greatly appreciated!

Join a long list of people wanting this. A different forum linked to this:

Grab Handles, Cell Phone Bracket, Seat Trim, Tailgate Vise, Fused 12v Under-dash pictures from cars photos on webshots

I've had it in my bookmarks for a long time. He took handles from a similar year explorer and fabbed em up. Best (and ONLY) thing I've seen yet for us...

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

Only problem I see is that the trim isn't designed to hold weight. Most grab bars are bolted into the truck body itself. If I were to do this I would weld bolts into the cab and then through bolt the exploder stuff to the cab. Should hold great.

I will be doing like the owner of the truck in the pictures and tapping the bolts into the pillars/frame, not just the plastic of course. Thanks for the info
