Don't worry. It's just the Trunk Monkeys screwing with you.

Yeah I have that problem sometimes. I just figured that when I get out of it I slide off the seat and press the handle down. That's the only thing I thought of but maybe it is the damn trunk monkey's

I haven't had a problem in the Jeep, but when I had my pathfinder I was FOREVER hitting the electronic seat adjustment switches with my leg getting out of it, usually happened when I was wearing a skirt and trying to keep my legs together so as not to flash my hooha. I gave up trying to constantly readjust it and just sat in it the way it was.

Shit, if I had one of those, I'd take the seat out of the Heep and set it in front of a mirror.

x2....6'3" here and the wife is 5'5". We keep it at the bottom. If I raise it my head would hit the freedom panel lol. If anything it should be able to go lower instead of higher.

Mine does that and the dealer wont replace it. Im 6'3 and my head does not touch. I keep it maxed, its nice to be able to see your fenders when your parking the bus in tight spaces. Its nice to lower it and the steering wheel all the way for highway driving feels like a different vehicle, and helps with the highway sway. Never thought about me pushing it down when i slide out i will check it out.

And here I thought it was just my fat ass sinking it every other day.

I boost mine a couple of pumps because it squeeks at the lowest position. I'll have to check and see if I'm bumping it when I get out now; good call.

No idea- but I think that the weight of the driver is what holds it in place after raising it. Not sure if it is a mechanical or air activated mechanism, but as long as your ass is on it, it seems to stay put just fine.

Mine "resets" itself overnight, but it still works after 3+ years.

*I think Chrysler calls it a seat-woody.

I looked it up in the parts book and it's mechanical no air or gas involved.

I looked at my seat again last night and noticed some rub marks on the vinal just above the handle so now I'm pretty sure that I'm bumping the lever down every time I drop out of the jeep.

Well raise it up all the way, drive like that for about a month, then surprise yourself when you can suddenly make it go lower.........I know ....."Smartass!"

I second that, it is definitely what is happening to mine. I think it is actually happening when im getting in, now that im paying attention. Have to start using the running boards (Mud Collectors) to get in.

I would look in the mirror and see how much ass your wife chewed off during the weekend if she was in a bad mood through the weekend!!!! That could cause you to sit lower!!

Actually, I never adjusted the 4 door driver seat....when I adjusted the previous JK driver seat on the 2door, I noticed it lower when I slid out of the seat when getting out of the Jeep.
