      My "grab" handles in "Flo" my '97 is currently unfastened. It would be 4:30 p.m. before I could measure for you, bit I will be glad to if you don't get the info before then. I would think that the 1997s would have the holes in the same place. Is it all 3 handle spots that you need to know the locations?

      Aren't screw clips used for the "Oh Crap" handles?

      Maybe they was taken off or fell off when liner was removed?

      The clips are still there behind the headliner. I should have marked where the holes were before installing headliner but forgot

      Well getting the handles in was a pain, mostly because one of the clips came dislodged from the bracket, thanks gman for that heads up. Removed a pillar trim and was able to slide the clip back into position with a coathanger and small flashlight.

      Was able to finally take the truck to the car wash for the first time in a couple years with zero water getting in through the window seal.
      Felt great

      Also the truck is a little quieter with new seal and headliner.
      Now I have to work on some sun visors, drivers side is ripped looks like crap.

      Forgive me for not getting back to you. I'm glad that you got it. If someone did the same thing and didn't poke through the old holes from the backside of the headliner board could they remove the trim holding the board up and look behind it at the clips to figure out where to put the holes for the handles?

      Yes Sir
      That is exactly what I did. It’s tight but still doable. Def easier on the front doors than the rears
