Liberty Passenger Handle
My mother-in-law has a hard time getting into the Nitro. I just added S/S nerf bars, which is a start. Prevents me from having to locate a cement block to be used as a step everytime I have to pick her up! To complicate the issue, there are no handles inside, as there were in my Jeep Commander (for some reason, she could get in the Jeep, but not the Nitro - I can't believe the Nitro is higher).
I was looking at a Liberty the other day, and it has a grab handle on the passenger side dashboard.
I know that the Liberty and Nitro share many parts. Does anyone know if the basic dashboard metal underneath the plastic we see is the same so I could mount this handle without her pulling it off the first time she used it?
Also, the consoles appear to be the same, between the Nitro and Liberty. Will the leather covered lid screw directly to my console?
Thanks for reading.
