    Added the grab handle but now that it is getting cold it is starting to squeak. Pulled it out and checked and not sure if it is rubbing the wire harness or what. So before I start to add foam weatherstrips or something thought I would ask if anyone else that added the handle has encountered the same thing and was able to resolve it.

    Thanks in advance for the guidance.

    I haven't had any squeaking coming from mine but it hasn't been all that cold here. It could be where the plastic pieces are coming into contact with each other when pressure is placed on the grip. I would probably put a little Vaseline on the points where the plastic contacts and make sure the bolts are tightened down good.

    Well after so more investigation seems to be the cabling at the top of the piller that is hitting the upper trim that the creak is coming from when the temp drops. Pushed the cabling tighter to the piller and added some one sided adhesive foam weatherstripping along the cable harness so see what happens. If that does not help then I'll give RowdyRon's tip a try.
