I friggin hate my Jeep right now. I have a 2010 JK Sahara and the hooked door latch has claimed my second pair of jeans. If I am not "very careful" when getting out of my Jeep, my belt loop on the back/left side of my jeans get caught on the door latch. Why in the world Jeep would have designed this with a hook is beyond me. Anyone else do this?

I had the same issue at work, happened twice with 2 pair of shorts. Not very fun having a big hole by your butt for the remainder of the day.

I understand your pain!

I've caught myself on it many times but haven't ripped anything.
I tried to adopt a different method of de-Jeeping ------ but sometimes I forget and I get snagged.
Just train yourself. Don't hate the Jeep; might as well hate the sky for being blue while you're at it...

I must be too short (5'7"). This has not been anywhere close to an issue with me.

me too, but the damn cargo shorts caught and ripped like a piece of paper. just so happens I was wearing somewhat flashy boxers, orange with black dots.
Needless to say I caught a lot of s#$t from the coworkers.

But hey my wife likes them

Unfortunately at 6', height isnt my issue...I just have no idea why they would have designed something with a hook like shape in a spot that is so easy to get it caught. Well, Wally World just got another $49.50 out of me for 3 new pairs of Wranglers LOL

I have never done it in either of ours. A friend of mine who rides with me alot has tore pants and gotten bruises from the one on the passenger side several times.

Think of it this way it could be a rice burner that the car part broke upon impact with your jeans and would have cost you a couple of hundred at the dealer.

I'm a shorty @ 5'4" and it hasn't happened to me yet - but I used to get hung on the seat adjuster in hubby's huge Dodge truck when I would get out. Pulled my shorts up to my back a couple of times... (_)_) Yep, cheek hanging completely out. Slightly embarrassing in walmart parking lot! lol
