i'm 5'3" and i have no issues driving my baby!! it's even got a 2.5" lift and getting in isn't all that difficult haha bit of a stretch but, better than trying to climb into the bf's truck
play with all the adjustments, it'll fit!

|MarcelOrtiz||well if she was 6' she would have her knees in the dash while the sit is all the way to the back. i actually think she fits better than the rest of us. the smaller you are; the bigger the jeep fits=more comfortable vehicle.|

|Burger16b||My gf is 4'11" and has a problem driving my jeep she says its hard for her to push the clutch all the way and she has to sit to close to the air bag.|

The space is what gets me. I see people with the wheel up and their chest close to the wheel all the time. Gotta aim that wheel lower and back off it.

My wife is just a fraction over 5'-0" and our 2013 Sahara is her DD. She doesn't seem to have any trouble driving it, although she has repeatedly said NO when I tease her and ask if she wants a lift kit for it.
She does have pedal extenders on it. Those are a good idea if someone is so short they would otherwise be pressed up against the airbag to reach the pedals.
The other day she was saying something about how tall it is and I mentioned that the badge on the side says "Trail Rated" and not "Midget Rated".
She liked that one.

IF you can get the set fixed for comfortable pedal use and lean the seat back enough to where she can still see, check to see that she's 10" away from the airbag.
I worry about my better half getting to close to the air bag, even the newer ones.

|BadOleRoss||I would leave the seat right where it is and keep her from driving it! More seat time for you!|

|GSDgirl||I am 5'3 and I have no problem. It may look a bit odd when my doors are off, but I got the seat positioned so I can clutch with no problem. I will say that having rock rails to stand on when entering helps a lot.|

|Newt1234||We will take a closer look at it later...I might just make her think she can't drive it.........|

|Scott2373||Yup, I've got a "shorty" for a wife as well, at 5'1". She's driven my Jeep with little to no issues, once she found the right combination of seat height and forward adjustment. Tell her to play around with it until she finds the right setting.|

|Blackpony04||My wife is 4'10" and has no problems finding a comfortable driving position. She does have the seat pumped all the way up and as far forward as it will go if that helps any. But it is her daily driver and trust me when I tell you that she wouldn't hesitate to complain about it if she wasn't truly comfortable!|

|benjamin.allen||She should be fine my wife is 4'11" and she has no issues driving i would play with the seat adjustments some more|
|07-07-2013 01:16 PM|
|Welding Rod||Dumb question but Have you tried lowering the seat?|
|07-07-2013 01:14 PM|
|Newt1234||Maybe it's just her short legs lol|

Too short for wrangler???
So due to my wife's hatred of car dealers I bought my '13 JK without her ever seeing it until I drove it home. Needless to say she absolutely loves it but today she wanted to drive driving and found that she was too short???
So she is about 5'3" and when she got in her knees were pushed up against the dash to reach the gas and brake pedals. She played with the seat, the steering wheel and everything she could try to make it work but just couldn't get setup without her knees against it.
Oh well, guess I will have to drive it more haha
