On a 1997 Ram pickup with the extended cab (back seat, no back doors), I have the passenger-side internal grab strap.
Had, rather. It's stripped out, for the second time. Is there a fix / upgrade part or kit available to keep this from recurring?

Is the nut-clip pulling out of the A-pillar hole along with the screw? Replace them. The dealer should be able to order the new hardware.

This is the ceiling-mount strap over the passenger entryway. There's no grab handles on my A-pillars -- truck's too old.
Yes. Everything has pulled out. We have replaced the OEM screws with 1 thread size bigger units previously, but those have pulled through now.
Dealer has no other suggestions. One person has suggested filling the screw-hole space with JB Weld & letting that cure, to hold screws.
