Jk Height

I've noticed since I removed the back seat that I sort of have to step up into my Jeep instead of just getting in. I know its expected that removing weight would change how it sits but that back seat doesn't weigh much at all, I'm surprised its moved enough for me to notice. Is there any way to measure or verify the change in height without putting the seat back in? I just got it stored away. I mostly want to check if there is an actual difference or if my memory is playing tricks on me.

I think your memory is playing tricks on you.

The weight of the rear seat shouldn't cause enough sag to notice.

Add 70lbs to the back and you will sag a little so. Rear seat weighs about 70-75lbs.

How old are you? Have you considered that you might be shrinking?

I ran all summer with no doors, no hard top and no rear seat in my JK.. The Jeep probably sat a bit higher. I never took measurements, but it definitely wasn't enough to notice while getting in and out.

Hahaha, well maybe. My first thought was it just felt different because I was wearing my work boots instead of my normal shoes but then I started thinking about it too much and remembering stories I've read about having wrong parts in directly from the factory and basically just general over thinking. I'm always just a tad paranoid the first few thousand miles in a new car, you never know when you're going to be the one who gets the lemon.
