Introducing the new bolt-in dash bar for the 1996-1998 Jeep ZJ!
For some reason, the designers at Jeep never thought to add passenger grab handles for the front passenger seat. We have remedied that issue PLUS added a grab bar for the driver side, helping greatly for pulling oneself into a higher lifted ZJ.
Constructed from 1.25" OD 14 gauge steel tubing, 10 gauge plate steel pillar brackets, and 1" OD grab handles on the sides, the bar is a straight design, without any bends it maximizes the strength. An additional bar was added over the glovebox location to act as a handlebar of sorts, giving the passenger a secure place to hold on when on those rough riding trails.
The bar is a single piece design that bolts into four locations with supplied riv-nuts and heavy stainless steel bolts. Drilling is required for installation. Installation takes only 10-15 minutes.
