2010 Journey Passenger Grab Handle (bar)

Recommended Posts

I did a search trying several keywords but nothing came up so I'll ask here, if I missed a thread let me know.

I want to put a grab handle on the passenger side of my Journey so the wife has something to hang on to when I'm making a turn. I don't make turns at NASCAR speeds but she's used to grabbing one from when I had my old car, and besides, it's nice to have. I've been checking periodically but so far, nothing strikes me as useable. Is there anyone on here that has added one to their Journey? If so then when kind? I don't mind using an aftermarket product or one that was for another Mopar car, just as long as it works, is stable, and can be installed with not to much effort.

Thanks

I could be wrong here, but I would think that the hole would be there in the frame for the handle already. I didn't realize that not all Journey's came with the holy shit handles. You may even be able to order the handle from the dealer (if you can't find the part, in the Interior section, there is a thread to all Journey part numbers). You may be able to install it yourself.

the hole might be there but the nutsert that provides the threads would most likely not be there and would have to be installed by the dealer, i would check with the dealership before trying to do it yourself.

Please keep this thread up to date because I too would like to add the grab handles (there would be 3 I suppose?).

There's no grab handles on your 2011? I wonder what trim level adds them. I don't recall seeing them specifically listed for any trim level, but all the DJs that I looked at had them.

According to the Dodge web site In the US the grips are on the Crew and above - the AVP, SE and SXT don't get them. And I quote:

Crew Features

included in base price

  • Includes Everything on SXT, Plus:
  • bla

That's just silly. "Oh #$!@" bars should be standard equipment on all vehicles. Especially on crossovers/SUVs/trucks/vans ... basically anything that isn't low to the ground, like a sedan/compact car. At the same time, I don't really miss them, as a driver.

My 2012 V6 Crew Journey does not have grab handles. We had a 2011 for a few weeks before it was totalled on the way home from my daughter's wedding. It was a 4 cyl SXT model and it also came with a power driver seat and the compartment under the front passenger seat. I would have thought the Crew model would have more features, not less. The 2012 does have real wheels and foglights though and I do like the V6, especially with a full load of passengers. I will take the suggestion and find a dealer or body shop to install my $12 handle which I ordered from the dealer. Great price!

I have a grab handle above each door in my Crossroad. Anyone know what a Citadel is? I saw a Durango Citadel, but I don't believe I have ever seen that on a DJ.

Mine has the grab handles above the door also. I find them mostly useless for aiding getting in or out of the car. We (DW and I) are short, so the seats are forward. The grab handles wind up above and behind our heads providing no leverage for getting in or out. What ever happened to the "tried and true" A pillar handles? Wish they'd put them back in the vehicles...they were good for gaining leverage and stability and made good "panic" grips in those "sporty" situations where the passenger goes "white knuckle" with the excitement :yup:

The DJ doesn't have a Citadel model... more or less, it is a fully equipped Durango with all of the bells and whistles.

Thank you. Now I'm wondering why I didn't get all the bla, bla, bla on my Crossroad. Now I fell like I got screwed, but at least I got the oh s**t handles!

Thanks but the dealer was no help.  Maybe I'll try another dealer...
