Added grab handle to OBS B-pillar

I read a few threads about adding an explorer handle to the OBS but to me it never looked very good or like it belonged and nobody seemed to be able to add one to the B-pillar...so i when and added one what do you guys think?


It sits pretty dang flush considering its from a super duty except the bottom one on the backside sticks up a bit
