Default It must be a Jeep thing.

I was reading another one of those useless "I crashed my..." threads when I saw CC mention he tore off a belt loop getting out of the Jeep. I have had my TJ for just over a year, and I no longer own a pair of pants with all of the belt loops in tact. I have ruined at least a dozen jeans/slacks so far. Is this normal?

I've ripped a ton of pants. Not on the hinge, but the latch. I should probably just take them off since I will never run doors

You'll get a ticket for driving with no pants on.

I have a tennis ball on mine, and catch crap about it all of the time. Just slit a tennis ball on the side and slip it on there. Only problem is, I did not think of the tennis ball until I removed most of my belt loops as well.

You guys need to learn how to get in and out - I drive mine every day, most days with a shirt and tie, and never get hung up on the door latch.

I guess if you're under 5 feet tall, and your seat is alot closer to the steering wheel, you don't slide in close to the latch. I didn't have a problem until I lifted it (5 days after I bought the Jeep).

I ripped a few in my old CJ, but, juding from your avatar you drive a baby jeep, so its to be expected, you can just hop out instead of jumping out
