Question Help getting in

So my mom keeps complaining about how its difficult to get into the jeep (I only have 31" tires on... for now ). I don't want to get side steps for Wilma (trying the name for my jeep, what ya think?) cause I don't think they look good. What could I get that would make it easier to get in and out that's not a side step? ideas?
Taking Wilma to prom so to help my prom date get in and out I'm gonna borrow my sis's 9" plastic fold able step lol.

I love my Rampage Grab handles! They used to make me feel old, but now I see them as a necessity

I am running PSC Rocker Knockers for this very reason (or so she believes)! I even added a strip of 3M gritty to them as they were slick as heel when wet.

Not such a crazy idea - don't know about the rope though!
I carry a milk crate so my mom can get in - she's usually happy to just slide out though.
I just have to wait for her to get in, then throw the milk crate in the back.

Have tried small plastic fold-flat steps as well - They work well too.

What about some paracord weaved into a foot loop, or a horse stirrup.

Proof I shouldn't type at 11:00 PM lol.

I kinda like the powered running boards, but didn't realize they made them for the TJ. I've only seen for the JK. I'll get grab handles first, and then if that still doesn't work I'll look into either rocker panels/ gaurds (correct terminology?) or those powered running boards. Ah, laziness

I'd suggest the grab handles that have the three straps.. They have more support.

Kinda like these from Rugged Ridge

Take that theory a step further, the entire length of the Raingler Grab Handle is the strap.
