    The vinyl was gone and looked like horrid -

    So, I ripped it off and went with Diamond Plate

    Yes, I used some old climbing holds for door handles...

    Guess I am not a purist!

    Looks pretty good,

    Not a big fan of diamondplate but as long noone can see it ;) . jk I plan on using some for a tailgate but will likely put the diamonds inside and paint it black. Looks good.

    I like the climbing holds.

    My 40 has bolt anchors at the factory holes with rope tied between them.

    A friend of mine once used BD hexes as shift knobs.

    Very nice. The climbing holds are cool. Lots better than the sections of garden hose I had on my 40 doors before I sold them.

    to each his own - I mean if it works for you and is clean - rock on man !

    Don't think you are a dumb redneck - I appreciate different ideas. I think it looks great. Would I do it - probably not, but then again my vinyl is ok.

    Keep up the good work freight, and have a good one-

    just don't put your leg against the door when you're bounching up and down the trails.
