    Default Identify grab bar

    Hi everyone. I'm new here and sorry to invade your space. But I really need help identifying the make of a vehicle by a picture I received. It looks to be a Chevy to me but I can't be sure. Has anyone seen a grab bar that curves and juts upward as in the picture. Thank you all for your help. I'm just a girl roughing it on my own and want to find out who sent me this picture. Any advice is welcomeClick image for larger version.

    Maybe somebody whacked their head off it and bent it upwards........

    Maybe a Cavalier or Sunbird, something like that

    Thanks for the replies. I was thinking the Blazer or maybe Tahoe had a grab bar like this no? Can't seem to pinpoint it. But I'd think it is a Chevy or GMC SUV. Could be wrong though

    A tahoe or any fullsize GM grab bar is even with the top of the dash not bowing up like that. The S- series trucks, s10, blazer... have more of an angle and do rise a little over the dash, but not nearly as much as that one.

    Thank you Pikey. So now I'm wondering if I'm even in the right make of car. So you don't think this is a Chevy? I've searched bowed, arched, upward, etc dash grab handles and can't seem to place this one. If I'm in the wrong ballpark let me know. I certainly don't want to waste your time. Many thanks

    The squareness of the windshield looks to me to be a truck, van, Suv. Not one that I have been in or have seen. If you figure it out please let us know.

    Will do Pikey. Thanks for your help.

    I spent some time Googling it and couldn't find anything like it. The pick is just too poor quality. The only think I could determine was that only GM trucks (Silverados, Blazers, Astros, Savanas) have passenger dash grab bars. Fords and Dodges do not. I do think it is a GM truck but too hard to tell beyond that. It is either a custom after-market bar or it just severely bent out of shape.
