Have read posts in the past of people using the grab handle from the 99-up trucks for the front passenger. Depending you your interior color, you might find an exact color match. You might try using the search feature to see if you can round up one of these old posts....one even had pictures but it's been a few years since I read it.

My interior is blue and I found some at the junk yard in a Subaru wagon that match almost perfectly. I used one hole that was already there and added another. Just #8 screws into the cab sheet metal. I can hang from them and ten years later no problem.

Used a grab handle from my buddies '06 on my pass side. Just trimmed the door post plastic to fit and then mounted it with #8 self tapping sheet metal screws. Works great with no problems so far and 200+lb buddies using it. Even the light grey interior plastic is a perfect match even with 9yrs difference! A bit of work to get it to look good but just take your time trimming that's all. Well worth the effort. (At least that's what my wife said)

I wasnt sure if the sheet metal screws would cut it but i guess if its workin great for you guys ill go that way. Well nuts are expansion nuts, drill a hole, put the plug in and when you put a bolt in the plug expands. I saw someone post about mounting handles that way on here.
