They prefer the "over the side" entry method when the top is down or the "thru the back" when the top is up. An "afordable" rear step or foot pad would be ideal. Will trade Pizza for help.
Well, the TJ's never came from the factory with the bumperette style rear bumpers that were used on the CJ's/YJ's... If you are looking for a good step, you could install one of the removable/flip-up steps that they sell for your receiver (if you have one), otherwise you could do some research on an aftermarket rear bumper. Most of the "rock crawler" typ rear bumpers that are available in the mail-order catalogs stick out farther than the factory rear bumper. My dog loves mine, but it was built by a local shop - Koz Offroad- in Midland, Michigan. You can check out his website HERE
. Good luck with your search!
