Currently shopping for a "pre-owned" SUV and am pretty much sold on a 99/2000 model Escalade(fits budget).
The only drawback is that it does not have a grab handle on the
driver's side.
This is a huge drawback since one of the regular driver's will be the wife, who is about 5'2" and depends on the handles for entry/exit. My brother has a '95 Land Cruiser and she can easily get in and out of that due to it's grab handles.

It looks like the pass. side A-pillar handle could be fitted onto the driver's side.
Has anyone done this or had the dealer do it?
