They are the A piller. I do not know what the exact name of the handle is. I just know that is the A piller with the handle on it.

I think it is time to put an Auto Meter gauge piller in haha. Thats what I have in. Get a couple gauges in there and you have a very cool look hapening.

I believe the are actually called the 'entry assist handles' but that just the polite term for 'help getting fat asses in handle' no offence, just having a laugh. If you pulled the screw out as well, you need to get the threaded insert for the A-pillar frame and a new cover. They're about $100 from a dealership up here, but junk yard may have them for less.

Yep my uncle's went through 3 or 4 of those things and my other buddies on his 2nd one. They aren't very sturdy and that's why i don't really use mine and if I do it's more for leverage while I jump up into my truck but I usually use the steering wheel for leverage but I'm not really putting much weight on either one of them most of the weight is going to the ground from me jumping lol.

The passenger side broke in my truck and I refused to pay for a new one. A side affect of being a fabricator I fixed it myself.
