Re: Opening the fuel filler door with your knee...

I'm 6'6 and don't even come close to hitting the button.

Re: Opening the fuel filler door with your knee...

I'm 5'9" and it has happened about 3 times getting in. I have been real careful entering with my Saddle interior (as it is showing "rubbing" signs) and my knee hits that dagblasted button. So now I'm EXTRA careful. It helps having the QL in the "Enter Jeep" heighth

Re: Opening the fuel filler door with your knee...

one fat tall bastard here. Easy exit would not help since i am essentially all the way back an almost all the way down on the sit position. I did hit a button a few times, along with bang side of my head while getting into a jeep ( a self-correcting problem, i remembered to duck after the second time). Additionally i put a quick release brake controller bracket for P3 so I will catch on the bracket before hitting the gas door release. But i was able to alleviate the issue by simply getting in and out of the jeep for 2 days
on the side note it is more of the torso proportion to the hight, but i seen some freaky bastards that would be 5'7" with 36" inseam.... now if a lady with those proportions, now we are talking about all legs, for guy well a freaky bastards ( yeah yeah yeah not PC but you know what I mean)

Re: Opening the fuel filler door with your knee...

The fat people comment was just a joke. I know how people can get all sensitive on the net. And I could be fat myself.......I'm not but you get my point.

cliff's if you are too fat to stop eating, well you are fat!

/thread jack
I am all for being insensitive about people letting themselves go? What you needed to be 600# to realized that they are hideous fat bastards @ 300lbs you could not tell? They needed to stuff their face with food until you need cut a hole in the wall to get you out of the house with the fork lift? I AM AN INCONSIDERED ASS, but i'd rather hurt ones' feeling and hope it will motivated enough to walk a mile vs eating XL supreme pizza by yourself!
Sure I got not much room to talk, I am OVERWEIGHT, but let's see - I can pass all the FD PT ( yeah a fat guy can run too), go to the gym, hike etc. Yes I will do a 2 cut/4 slice thing on a pie or above mentioned 14" pizza. BUT I WILL MAKE MYSELF WORK IT OFF! sure if I skip the food and still work out i will be a beef cake. I like cake more through
So my take:
if you are supersensitive about your weight ( i don't mean those anorexic/ bulimics, etc truly sick), BUT I AM TOO FAT TO WALK so i will get a handicapped permit and demand a scooter to shop for my soda at the supermarket. Well better get used to it! I will call you out, it is not society’s fault that you are a lazy slob that just eating yourself to death!


ok you welcome to ask how i really feel I promise not to hold back this time

PS I do look like a god- Buddha

Re: Opening the fuel filler door with your knee...

Back to the topic... yes, have have done it several times in my garage as I park on the left side and have to sqeeze in if I park too close to the wall.

Oh, I glued a small piece of foam to the wall as a bumper for the door.

Never had an issue hitting the button. I have easy exit enabled.

Hahahaha.

Most people I know that are overweight always find an excuse not to workout.

And I guess "Easy Exit" is for fat people. I'm sure the engineers thought about people that are larger than other when theyd designed that. Also for other reasons as well.
