keep tearing pants getting into d-90

Does anyone else keep ripping off belt loops on the door strike plate getting into the drivers seat. A small price to pay for owning a defender. Just wondering if it's me or the car

Where elastic waistband pants.

Or:

Weld doors shut and get in Dukes of Hazard style.

Remove the doors! It has never happened to me. You could fabricate a guard for the plate with a piece of angle aluminum and lexan, but chances are you will get caught on that also. Maybe Yousef will have some advice! He may be able to tell you some kind of ninja move or something.

I must have ripped the loops off of at least 4 pair of pants/shorts that way over the last few years.... Glad its not just me. I just try not to wear nice pants when driving the 90. Its a good think I don't have to take it to work.

That would be the Ninja flip. Maybe you all are too pudgy. Not that I have room to talk but I also have to master the extra high-jump over the nut-buster thigh supports of the Courbueas.

maybe just short, not pudgy... although I am pudgy, I choose to think its a height issue, as I can't control that.... ;-)

Hey! I'll have none of that! You keep your pants on! Belt loops are over rated, get a pair of suspenders or better yet get some coveralls.

It happens. I just tell my Girl Friend to pick me up a new pair of whatever while she's out spending money at the mall. Makes up for her expensive taste in cuisine.... Every freakin weekend....

Maybe we should all just get jeeps. I've heard that rubicon is nice...
I can see the letter bombs in my mailbox already

I can't tell you how many pairs of Carhartt jeans I have that are missing the left rear pocket, or just have a big hole where it caught the corner of the pocket and ripped the seat open. Sometimes it will catch the emblem sewn in the middle of the pocket, and just rip out the center of the pocket, leaving all of the edges intact (if I am lucky:>)

My girlfriend has the problem of hitting herself on the edge. I for one try not to keep my shirt tucked in, it helps! To hell with pants!

Richard C, if your going to wheel without pants you should invest in some of those waterproof seat covers. If you ever sell or trade your D it will help the resale value, especially if you do those 5+ bonzai trails.
