Added some 3/4 spacers from the bumper and winch weighing it down. Seems to have leveled it back to normal. I can tell because its a little bit more of a stretch getting in and out (the way it should be )

Try getting in without using your arms to pull yourself up into the cabin. Actually, it's not that difficult.

Ugh. When I went to test drive my Jeep before I bought it, I had a backpack in one hand and a motorcycle helmet in the other. I thought I was man enough to make it inside without needing hands. Well, the damn jeep was lifted about 5" from the PO.

I made it in. But I didn't look like a cool guy doing it.

What kind you use? My DIY cruise ship anchor/front bumper dropped my already factory raked front end about a half inch.

I still am limited to 30 lbs. lifting. I weigh 150 lbs. over that.


Fortunately, Recon Turn Signal lenses don't weight nearly 30 lbs. so I will be putting them on this weekend.

Ahh. I had to do some changes to the grab handles because I have really crappy shoulders and hips/knees so I look pretty goofy climbing in and out of the JK/LJ.

I looked pretty goofy, too, even before my surgery. Climbing in and out, that is.

Glad I'm not the only one! I'm 5'6 so I'm not short, just have had several orthopedic surgeries. Do you have side steps?
