Re: Steel Grab Bar

On my '81 CJ 7, the stock grab bar ("sissy bar" "Oh [censored]!" bar etc. etc.) is mounted so that the mounting holes are centered 3 1/2 inches below the top of the dash (the metal below the cowl rubber) and 2" and 19" respectively from the right edge of the dash.

If I were you, I would check to make sure the distance, center-to-center) of the mounting holes on your grab bar is 17" before grabbing the drill.

And I'll use the inch measurements rather than metric because they came out dead on by my tape measure. I assume you have an inch measuring device handy.
