Broken tailbone... Big lift

Everyone that has a jeep knows that tj s have a real big step to get through the door part. Well my buddy went to get outta my jeep 6" sl 2" bl 35" tires. Slid off the seat and nailed his ass on the door piece rite below the seat and went face first into the pavement. After only seeing this outta the corner of my eye my first reaction was to laugh. I leaned over the passenger seat to find him rolling around holding his ass with a bloody nose! He went to get X-ray 2 days later figured out he has a broken tail bone. I need to purchase a sticker now that say watch your step! So I don't get sued!

Maybe you shouldn't be so incredibly, excessively tall.

I broke my tailbone in football. It sucks. But seriously. With 6+2 " of lift you need 37's at least.

I bet he never rides in that Jeep again. Definitely not in the interim with a sensitive butt.

with 8" of lift his insurance company would probably drop him, red flag his jeep and smirk as they handed back the medical bills. Either that or you're wicked lucky

Ouch. I feel his pain. I'm pretty sure I borked my tailbone while snowboarding about 8-10 years ago. To this day if I sit down in a hard chair for an extended period of time it hurts.

I was getting something out of the back of my cj7 ( 6.5" lift 36" tires ) and when I was exiting I stepped out backwards and when I placed my one foot on the ground I stepped on a piece of ice and I did a standing split and tore my hamstring. ( tenda )

I don't know for sure because I never went in to get an x-ray. I've always heard that if you break your tailbone there is nothing that can be done so I never bothered to go in. Being that 8-10 years later and it still bothers me...I'm pretty sure I did. lol.

I fell on my butt twice in the span of about 2 minutes on the peak of Mt Hood in Oregon. It was like snowboarding on pavement up there.
