I'm 5'2", 105lbs, blonde, like long walks on the beach...
I take my full TJ doors on and off with no problem. The gym does help though. I reach through the open window and grab the handle while propping the bottom of the door on my leg until I get the hinges lined up and it slides right in.

technique

Us old guys has learned you just gotta get the technique.

DRIVER'S SIDE:

REMOVE: Make sure nut is off bottom of top hinge.

Open door; remove strap from door to frame; roll down window; from the outside reach right hand/arm through window and grasp pull strap; lift up, opening and closing door slightly to work it up. Set it aside.

REINSTALL:

Reach through window from outside with right arm, grasp pull strap and lift, holding against body. Use the free, left hand to guide top hinge to begin insertion: once it barely starts, adjust door so bottom hinge is in alignment using left hand. Lower into place.

Passengers Side: Reverse

Works for me.

ps: i got her # tho.

On the plus side, if you do get up the balls to ask her out, she'll probably just take her bra off for you, cuz she knows you'll never be able to figure it out

Or if your lazy or have a long walk with your doors keep the top of the door frame on your shoulder. While still holding the inside handle from the outside. I keep my doors in my office.
