    Oh Crap Handle


    This is an Attwood Corporation 2054-5 Black Gray Vinyl Grab Handle. Usually used in marine / boats. I cut a piece of aluminum strap to use as backing.



    Notice the new notch in the backing plate to fit over a piece of plastic behind the dash. I put some liquid nails on it and drilled to holes in the dash.



    Looks almost Oem? haha



    Its large enough to get both hands on it too. My wife is going to love it. It turned out very solid and sturdy.

    Front Skid Plate

    I just installed my front skid plate tonight. The skid plate is manufacture by Rocky Road Outfitters in Heber, Utah. Turned out pretty good.

    Looking sharp! I wonder if they'd make one for a Nissan NV.

    I've ridden in this car, and I think I recall it being hi/low. Looking forward to riding in it again, it's great fun. Makes me miss cars, a little.

    Front Tow Points


    These D-rings are bolted to the crash bar. I definitely won't be lifting the weight of the vehicle with these. Its just a more convenient hook on point than under the car. There are factory tow points under the car, but they are only good for a few angles. If you used the factory tow points with the nose down it would put horrible pressure on the front plastic fascia. So, these D-Rings are as good as I could do.

    The brackets are from a jeep wrangler rear bumper [Jeep CHRYSLER OEM 07-16 Wrangler Rear Bumper-Mount Bracket]. The D-rings are welded to the jeep bracket and are rated at 10,000lbs. I doubt the crash bar could handle any load like that.

    That front bumper with the D rings looks tough, I like it.
