    You should sell them as $25 each or 2 for $40. You'd make a ton more money

    Remember in business it's easier to lower your prices then to raise them.
    If you friends wants new ones they will be surprised about the price increase but new customers won't know the difference.

    I'm probably going to sell them for $40 for tj's or the 2 door JK's and for the 4 door jk's I'll probably be selling them for $70-$80 just because it's alot of Paracord and the shackles

    Do the color of the handles match the color of the Jeep?

    Has anyone considered using a product similar to "Plastidip" in order to firm the handles up?

    My store bought "oh s#1t" handles are quick to grab, which seems lacking in the homemade versions.

    I wonder how long the Plastidip would hold up with the flexing of the grab handles?

    To eliminate some of the flexibility of the grab handles one could use a lightweight metal strip bent slightly to make it easier to grab the handles and weave around the metal then Plastidip the whole thing.

    I wouldn't recommend spraying plasti dip on it because plasti dip is made to peal off and it wouldn't stay on there good. And you really don't need to make them stiff
