No, but I had a guy try to get in my Jeep one time , and He fell backwards onto the pavement, hitting his head really hard. He couldn't get his leg over the door entry.

Im getting tired of thinking...guess I'll do some wishful drinking.

I've caught my foot on the lip a few times, haven't fallen...yet. Let's hope it stays that way.

It happens.. luckily I'm tall enough to step right in without having to use my rocker guard tube rail. Any more lift and I would have trouble.
