CJ-5 PASSENGER SAFETY HANDLE

Post by Ben Dover » Fri Feb 05, 2016 9:29 am

Did you know that the 55-71 CJ-5 Jeep Passenger Safety Handle that was offered as a factory accessory is the same as the Passenger Safety Handle on the M-38A1?
Only difference is the Black Paint on the CJ-5 version. Most 55-71 CJ-5's had pre drilled holes on the dash for this accessory.

An 80 year old widow told me that the correct name for that handle is the "OH S#!T bar."

I once tried to bounce a 400# Army Advisor out of an M-38A1, on the tank trails, the handle was not needed, he was like a bean bag in his seat.

REMINDER:
Good idea, that Passenger Safety Handle.

689311 RAIL, Safety (Black Color CJ-5)
681039 RAIL, Hand, safety, M-38A1 (OD Color) Same rail, different color.

The CJ-5 RAIL, Safety came as part of a KIT, Safety Rail, 94509 which included Installation Drawing, 1 Rail, 2 Bolts2 Nuts, and two Flat Washers.
