that's why they make tie down (door closure) straps. Just wrap a couple of them around the outside of the Jeep and if the strap's long enough, you can take care of both doors with one.

I've lost a couple of belt loops in my day.
What I hate is when you jump out and your right toe hangs up on the inside of the lower door opening. You start hoping on your left foot that is now on the ground and praying your hammy don't pop!

|Kota7x||I have had my LJ for almost 3 years now and havn't taken a belt loop off yet but have hung myself from the strike by the belt loop. I have also hit my hip on it a few times and that hurts.|

QUICK FIX = Take a hack saw and cut that thing off. No more torn pants!
On a serious note, they will hurt your rider, too, if you aren't careful. My wife was getting in her side one day when my foot slipped just a tad bit off of the clutch. It slammed her back into that thing, causing some pretty intense pain when that thing hit her about kidnew high. Could have been worse. She could have fallen out and .....
Anyway, lesson learned. Keep the vehicle in neutral or park until all passengers are safely inside or away from it.

|Chilly03||Too damn funny... My daughter always asks me why I'm missing belt loops... lol|

|Willybusmc||This must be a tj thing. I drive a yj and I'm 6' plus and I've never even hit my hip on the door latch|

|Wyominer||I've got 2 or 3 belt loops. The best one was when I picked-up a co-worker, 6-4 275 lb farm boy. He jumped in, snagged the latch, ripped out the whole side out of his jeans! Still makes me laugh.|

|Scootsk||Everybody seems to get it caught at different times. I get caught getting in. Others getting out. FYI, I do have the misch big boy brackets, great mod. Only problem is now my head is really close to the roll bar, really close.|

|dylan1991||I've had mine a year and yet to rip a beltloop knock on wood. I have about ripped my hipbone off a few times. At least that's what it feels like. Lol|

|AlexS||Had my wrangler for about 6 months and it has eaten two different belt loops|

|idiot magnet||Wow 30 years of driving Jeeps and I have never snagged a belt loop. Now I've just cursed myself and I bet the next time I get in I rip my pants completely off...|
|05-07-2013 07:31 AM|
|DarrenT||I haven't ever snagged any clothing, maybe because I'm a shortass and have my seat right forward...|

Look at getting Misch Bigboy brackets. Absolutly the best mod for comfort for tall people.
I am still at a loss how a vertical belt loop gets snagged on a closed horizontal door latch loop. I have not had any torn belt loops in 5+ years.

I've owned the LJ for 6 years now, never had a belt loop grabbed.
Maybe that's because 16 years in a modified CJ5 trained me to get out without catching, or pay the price...

That's a good mod... mine's about 2 notches too close for me.

Dare I ask whether you guys lean your seat way back, leaning over to the middle of a car like a gang banger or have it more straight up?
My seat is as far back as it goes and none of my pants have died or almost died.

|Barmanvarn||Guess I'm lucky. Only snagged getting out maybe 5 times in the 2 years I've owned it.|

|n00g7||Are you guys hitting it on getting in or out? I have no problem with either. Right hand goes on the inside of the rollbar, other on the door and I just throw one leg in, hop with with the other and pull myself up... Getting out I just open the door all the way turn in the seat and hop out as to not get my pants all dirty.|
|05-06-2013 09:44 PM|
Yeah it got me.
Now I just wear my workout shorts when wheeling.
