use a step stool. be a gentleman and put it out for her and pick it up once shes in. or tie a rope to it so she can pull it in behind her.

I like the factory steps, best prices on eBay, 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler 2 DOOR Production Style Side Steps MOPAR GENUINE OEM | eBay
They are not good for off road, but they match the fenders and will never rust.

You also might want to get some grab handles, if you don't have them already. I'm pretty vertically-challenged myself, and I've found that my grab handles make it MUCH easier to pull myself up & into the seat.

I'm short (4'11") and I've got straps on the roll bar by all 4 doors and it helps!

Congrats and welcome... My gf loves the cheap grab handles that I bought. If you have spare time you can make your own out of para-cord
