Really simple question, how do you guys exit your Jeep?
Do you slide off the side bolster and down, or do you lift up and over? I ask because sliding off the bolster as I swing my leg out could cause it to sag over time. Also, I started to get a creak in the driver's seat which may be due to the way I get out. Over the weekend I greased the rails and the creaking went away for a couple of days but now its coming back.
I use my side steps. Not sure if that makes any sense...I don't stand fully on it, and gaze at the sunrise or anything, look for enemy movement over the top of my roof. It's just kinda the halfway point between my floorboards and the ground, so I use it climbing in and out.
"What we see depends mainly on what we look for."
The side steps on the Sahara are too wide for me to easily stretch over on exit.
Other than that, I've kept my seating position at a comfortable stock "step in/step out" height.
get in--buckle up--hang on
"soothing agricultural implement/personal servant/Walter Mitty multidimensional access utility device conveniently travels on pavement when necessary and often keeps me warm/cool/dry/soothed as needed."
I catch the back of my right foot on my rock rail to somewhat lift myself off the seat. Since I'm parking in my garage this winter I have one of those little plastic stools/tool box things waiting for my arrival.
It's a good thing I had two of those. Day before yesterday someone scooted it into my path a little and I ran over the damn thing.
