I think my wife loves my Jeep (and me).

I always though these were cool if you need a little help getting into a Jeep. My wife is 5,11", but has had knee surgery and may need this after the Jeep is lifted.

Haha I'm only 5'3" so I totally have to have the side steps! And you won't find me with a lifted Jeep :LOL: But I can tell you that owning Jeeps (Wrangler type of course) exclusively for several years, I can't stand to get in and out of a "car". I feel like I'm crawling in and rolling out of them. They are just too low for me now. :like:
Yep, my wife likes the "I'm taller than everyone on the road" feel too. Ever since we got our '93 Astro conversion where our three children had their very own seats! No more "he/she is touching me" on those 500mi road trips!

As for her Jeep, just a change in rubber when the factory tires wear out. Maybe go with Yokohama Geolander G003's in a reasonable width...

That's funny, I love my wife's Jeep and her. Small world.:)

We are both vertically challenged, she's 4'10" and I'm 5'6" if I stand up straight. No steps or stools used but she has a driving pillow that she's fond of, won't leave home without it.
My wife is 5' and doesn't need the pillow but has a really tough time getting in. Good thing she's athletic!

We can't stand the car feeling either. She currently has one and has been regretting it since she traded in her last SUV.

Those are amazing! Any idea what they are called or where you can find them? I haven't seen them before.

IDK, look a little scary to me. But I'm awful clumsy too :surprised:

A few years ago we had a 2005 Xterra Off-Road and that was my wife's favorite vehicle (mine too for that matter). We had lots of adventures in that X. We've had some nice vehicles since then but she never felt the love she had for the X. When they stopped making them it was a sad day indeed.Never thought she'd like any vehicle as much as that one. Our jeep was about as much of an impulse purchase as we've had on a vehicle. Always wanted one but it was my bucket list vehicle, not hers. Turns our we needed a vehicle quickly but nothing was really piquing her interest. One morning over breakfast we decided to look at Wranglers. Went to our local dealer (who was brand new to our city) and it was love at first sight. That afternoon we drove off with our JLUR. She loves the Jeep! Loves the color. Loves the ride. Loves the Rubicon (wouldn't let me get anything less). Says this far and away exceeds the X in every respect. Never thought that possible. Now I'm more worried she'll want it as her DD. She looked at Wranglers cuz she loves me. Now I can't ever foresee a day we won't have a Wrangler in our garage. Nothing else comes close.

Wifey sure loves our new JL too! It sure is a nice step up from the ride our TJ has been. She's wanting to put all sorts of mods on it too... Gotta love Jeep Chicks!
