Ok, so I have meathooks for hands but is anyone else unable to adjust the diver's seat, with the door closed, while wearing a watch?

Love the new Jeep and have owned several Wrangles and non-Wrangler Jeep products, but just noticing that with some of the new creature comforts (read added plastic) we're losing a little space :)

Think I've noticed less foot room b/c of the new plastic(?) on the foot area?

Toss the watch out the window, you're on Jeep time.

No, but sometimes I have trouble walking and chewing gum, so I don't chew gum.

Does this imply that you're adjusting the seat while driving? No, you wouldn't do anything as careless as that, so simply open the door while adjusting, then close, then drive.

Or, as a better and more manly way to solve the problem, and before countless pinheads reprimand me for advocating for safer driving, just take the doors off...

There isn't any room if you have big paws and a watch on.and the strap to recline the seats is always hard to find for me. I have to always adjust the seat height to the lowest. Wife has it at the highest. I swear I could drive it like that with my head out the top.

Happens to me all the time. But she also has the seat so far forward that i always bang my knee on the light switch...usually turning it to off...and forgetting to turn it back on.

Why does her seat position affect your knee ?

Re: Subject Question - You can't adjust the seat; driving or not with the door closed if have man hands and where a watch that you don't want to fuck up. It is similar to many other vehicles without power seats - especially Japanese sedans that pull duty are rental cars. It sucks...I take my watch off to adjust since kids or wife usually drive it or do it pre-trip with the door Open. Largest disappointment with JLUR is lack of seat adjustment period. And "yes" and I already knew what I was getting with shitty seat adjustment settings.
