Finally! Hitch/Grab Handles

Well, I've been talking about doing this for quite some time now but I finally sold my S-10 so it allowed me to spend just a couple of bucks for my grab handles and tow hitch. I put it on Monday but we got 6" of snow here in Raleigh so the back is just incredibly dirty right now but you will get the idea. I ended up having the dealership put my rivNuts in because I stripped out the first one and didn't want to mess up any more. Well, enough talking, here is a dirty pic. I'll grab some more once I get her cleaned.

Good job, They will really help you get up to get things of the rack if you load the top.

Yeah, I won't feel unstable now getting up to put stuff in the luggage carrier. Next thing I pick up I think is a bike carrier for the roof and I think these will help a lot with that too. Thanks guys!

Looks good. I'm going to add the grab handles also in the future.

Is the rear bumper strong enough to stand on... it always seems to flimsy to me to do that, I don't trust it!

spryan81 - looking good, I always think the XK looks better with the chrome grab handles...

I stand on mine and feel comfortable (having the grab handle helps), it is not a lot of space for your feet but I think you would be fine.

The bumper really doesn't have that much space to stand on but I don't feel like I'm going to slip off. I'm 230lbs and it holds me fine I think.

I knew I was going to get that question haha, I'm actually from Newfoundland Canada. I've been in North Carolina for the last 13 years. The old letters were "NFLD" but they've changed it in the last few years. NL is now the only sticker I can find (which actually stand for Newfoundland and Labrador).
