The 95's and some late 94's used a striker plate with a guard over the post. Some early style ones are drilled for the plate as well.

At least 20. I hit mine getting in. I have a 95 but my driver side striker cover is broken and I never replaced it.

2 for me and 1 for the guy that works with me. Levi's are getting expensive so I've learned a different way to get in.

I can live without the Belt Loops I never wear a belt. But its a little Embarrassing to hang there half in and half until the loop decides to break.



SIDE NOTE
My Wife reminded me it hasn't happened since we put in the new seats.

I never tore any loops because mine has the striker but after swapping in seats from an '03 sunfire i ripped the back pocket on 2 pair of jean shorts catching them on the lever that tilts the seatback

I found it cheaper to buy tube steps from ebay than multiple pairs of pants....

I agree but now that I have read this thread I'm sure it will happen.

None myself, guessing the rockers with steps help, but passengers coming out of the back have torn pants, skirts (not much of a complaint on my part lol), and got caught by the belt on more than one occasion.
