Is driver A-pillar tapped for grab handle?

I haven't popped off the plastic cover yet, is the A pillar already drilled/tapped for a grab handle? I'd love to have one, I'm so used to having a handle there, or part of a roll cage that I can grab onto while getting in and out of vehicles. I don't ever plan on having gauges on the pillar.

I'll pop off the plastic cover and see what's under there. I need to run some wires to my dash cam anyway, so it'll be off soon regardless.

I'll just pull it off, since I want to figure out a grab handle too. I hate pulling interior panels off, feel like I'm going to break them every time I do, haha!

those are pretty stout but i know what you mean

usually you break 33% so by the third time you remove a panel there are no clips left lol

@error404 I know this was a bit old but wondering if yours had the holes/nuts already there. Thanks.
