A somewhat embarassing problem...

Well see, I have this problem, which may or may not be a common issue...but nonetheless, its still a problem. I want to put as much lift of my 07 unlimited as i can... the thing is that my mom-im still in high school- wants to still be able to drive it. im fine with that buuuut shes about 4'11. She still needs to be able to get in the thing somehow...i know that there are motorized running boards out there, but i would much rather prefer not to go down that road...any ideas?

Love ya Jim... but I'd DIE first!
Chances are, I'd kill myself with one of those anyway.

To the OP, with a JK, you don't NEED a ton of lift for it to be a VERY capable trail rig.
In fact, it's not only a whole lot more expensive to go HIGH it's going to give you the likelihood of more mechanical problems and be a lot more expensive.

Think about a budget boost, some good rock rails/sliders with integrated steps,

bigger tires (by trimming the fenders a BB can clear 35's no problem, 37s on a Rubi. A lot depends on your drivetrain. Oh and get some Rugged Ridge Handles. They help a lot with climbing in.

How will she pick up the folding step after she's in?
