The things our bodies do automatically can be pretty amazing.

And, I haven't fallen out of my TJ yet, but if I do it will be like Photojeep when my foot catches the door sill on the way out. Came close a couple times.
I have yet to exit a 350Z without smoking my shoulder (yes shoulder) on the top of the door frame. Im just used to my camaro's dimensions and stand up too soon.

my wife was getting in once, on the passenger's side of course. Her left leg was in and butt was on seat she wasn't sitting quite right so with her right foot which was outside on the step she pushed to move further into the seat her foot slipped and ran her leg all the way to her knee skinned her up pretty bad.

Most of my injuries occur when I open the tailgate and about the third time I step over there, usually miss it the first couple of times, and I walk into the hitch. One time I pulled a 3 stooges and hit my shin hard then when I bent down in pain cracked my skull on the edge of the body. Yep not a good day, luckily it was seen by no one. I only spoke of it once before to explain the bruise and forehead cut to my wife. Go ahead, she laughed really hard also.

yeah, it's not a tj

But more often than I care to remember, when trying to enter my cj5, I have hit my knee cap on the bolt head in the lower left hand corner hole of my dashboard. Now I know some of you are thinking how can you hit the head of a bolt that only sticks out 1/4 of an inch, but trust me you ( or maybe just me) can, and if you (or maybe just me) hit it in just the wrong way as you're swinging your leg up and in you can connect with it pretty hard and it'll hurt like h***. My neighboor just laughed when he asked why I was cussing one morning trying to leave for work.

Had my jeep about a week when I flung the door open hard to get out and forgot that jeep doors don't stay open like other doors and it swung back on me real fast. I was almost out of the way, but what I got was a nice long srape bruise down my upper arm. Broke the skin and everything. Hurt for a while, but I haven't forgotten again that the door will come back just as hard as i swung it out.
