So this lifted YJ is my first really lifted rig. My brother has a lifted F100 & told me that over the years driving this thing, he's had to replace the tilt column twice. He says the reason is from holding on to the steering wheel & pulling himself in & out of the rig. I've kinda been doing the same thing, ie; placing my right foot on the floorboards, then holding on to the steering wheel to haul myself up into the seat, a little jump & I'm in. But it sounds like I'm going to have to change this if I don't want to have to replace steering columns. Maybe those handles on the roll bar instead?
