An unusual mod not to the Jeep by for its use

This was done to enable to get my wife into the jeep, she has MS and is in Wheelchair she can stand for a short time to transfer but the Jeep was too high. She is only in it about once a week but I wanted her to able to ride with the rest of the family. It's just a wooden 1/2 pallet they use to ship wood burning stoves I put a piece of plywood on the top covered it with a piece of rubber mat and then purchased a ramp. The entire thing fits into the back of the Jeep no problem, the ramp folds up.

Thanks guys. Yes the ramp is aluminum it folds up in half then in half again if that makes sense, so its about 1/4 of its extended size. The pallet sits perfectly in the back the ramp sits on top of it up against the back seats and the wheelchair goes on top them. Took a couple of trys to get it down, the first time felt like I was playing Tetris but its all easy now.

To pprice72 and to anyone else who does what they can to contribute to this or any other disease Thank You.


Now back to your regular scheduled Wrangler Forum insanity
