Thumbs down These roll bar grab handles stretch out about six inches.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=290545317837

You can see they are real cheap, but add 10.27 shipping, and you are almost up to what a known brand costs. I didn't know better, and I had a few dollars in my paypal account.
Well, I put on on the passenger side, and grabbed it. It stretched out about about six inches. Perfect if you want to punch yourself in the face as you get in.

I contacted the seller, and we had some long winded exchanges, I am supposed to get a refund.

So, don't do what I did. I saw a set for $15 at Tractor Supply that was better suited. These are not for getting in and out of the Jeep.

I have been offered a full refund, so I am glad I contacted them about it. They also said that the handles are not intended for use while getting in or out, but as something to hang onto while already inside.

neoprene wetsuit material. It's designed to stretch.

Yeah, I am not sure who is more daft, them for making them, or me for buying them.
I assumed that there would be a strap inside to prevent the obscene amount of stretching, so they would work to some degree. But no, nothing.

Imagine if you sold roll bar add-on parts made out of 1 1/2 conduit, and when people complained you said that you never meant for them to be used as protection, only for looks.
