I will remember mine for a long time. It was 6:42 pm CST today. I have only had my TJ for about a month and I was in my garage wiring up my locker bypass switch. I suddenly realized I needed a wire nut to help guide the wires through the dash. I jumped out of my TJ and deployed my trusty box of “all things you can stick on the end of a wire”. As I grabbed the golden yellow wire nut, I turned to re-enter my Jeep and that is when it happed…….as I slid in to make the connection…. I lost my first belt loop. Yes it was a very emotional moment as I crossed over into the elite group of “do it yourselfers” whom have sacrificed countless numbers of belt loops before me. May the tradition continue.
"I did not say it was your fault...... I just said I was blaming you."
It is the stationary piece of the door latch that is mounted to the body. Nasty gremlin.
This. The day I bought my TJ, I was wearing an old comfortable pair of cargo shorts. My wife had been complaining because they had a dime sized hole in the butt, but I still wore them because they were "broke in". When he gave me the keys and I got in to drive off, I caught that damned hole on the latch and ripped the whole ass out of em. He didn't see it, so I drove home real slow hoping nothing happened so I had to get out
Bruised hip, broken lanyard, and once when stepping out of my Jeep onto a rock, I slipped and took the skin off the back of my right leg. I know I have torn clothing before but never a belt loop. Guess I am the one with the stronger pants

I've caught the pocket flap of my cargo shorts on that damn latch 1 time and ripped the button off, but my old Yj, now that bugger took at least 3 of my loops & countless passengers they had the Ole school style door striker/bolt.
I haven't snapped too many belt loops, but i have ruined tons of pants brushing up against the tires. Its especially nice when its a $50 pair of khakis and im on the way out already running late.
Khakis? To work? Don't be a schlub!
You kids are probably saying to yourself, "Now, I'm gonna go out, and I'm gonna get the world by the tail, and wrap it around and put it in my pocket!!" Well, I'm here to tell you that you're probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you're not gonna amount to Jack Squat!!" You're gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese, and living in a van down by the river!
I ve never had this problem on my YJ which has a step, but I have on my TJ with no step !

Not in the TJ, but the Stealth I used to have had a peculiar piece of plastic on the side of the seat that liked to grab jacket pockets and occasionally pants pockets on the way in and out.
So it was, when I was leaving for lunch, I got in and that piece slid into the pockets on my slacks and ripped them from the pockets to mid thigh. So my lunch was spent running into a dollar store (with one hand clinching the seam shut) to get thread to stitch them up enough that I could walk into a store to buy another pair.
From then on, my gloveboxes sported a small sewing kit... just in case.
I thought I was the only one, I hate coming to work in uniform and snagging my belt-loop or breaking it. It always seems that my E-8 catches me trying to make it look like my belt-loop is fully attached. I've had to repair/replace many pairs of uniform pants at $40 a pair
I have not lost any of my belt loops but i have bashed my hip off of it and my elbow quite a few times, so has my girlfriend. only had my jeep for a couple months but i have a couple thousand bruses from the damn thing. Thats ok though thats just how me and the Jeep show our love for eachother<3 I beat the crap out of it when fixing whatever it may be that needs fixed and well it returns the favor!
