We all know our cars don't come with some of the nicety's that should be standard equipment. Such things as glove box light, passenger assist handles, and the list goes on.
At our last cruise-in a new member to our crew, (sssrt8) Austin, mentioned that his shop does custom automotive work and we could work something out. Good to his word, we spoke Monday, he ordered up the same grab bar that resides over the rear doors, and below is the result.
If anyone is looking for some custom work, I highly recommend contacting him.
Oh ya, it works, looks good, and the light works just like the rear doors.
I had already bought the glove box light, but not installed it, so Austin says, "We'll put it in, since you're here".

Looks good, but I assume this wouldn't work if you have side air bags. (I also assume that's why we don't have the grab handles to begin with).

Yep, correct, no side airbags on mine. But for all those with disabilities who need this, its a great solution.
My Wife would love to see me install this feature. She loves the Magnum and the performance mods but when I step into it I know she would like another place to grab on to. LOL
I was wondering if there was a way to put one on the passenger side pillar ??? A standard handle without a light should be easy to do on the pillar shouldn't it ?
how do you know if you have side airbags? Warning labels?

the "oh shyt handle" is a nice mod indeed..
Thank You Haz
Do you know what he did behind the headliner? I'm guessing he added some nuts to screw into.
I never knew anyone actually even used those grab handles. I always thought they were useless...but apparently not for everybody.

I know that people riding with me wish they had one. Luckily the R&T seats hold you pretty well. I let my nephew drive the other day and that's when I realized there wasn't a handle there.
