    i like 'em, i just worry my fat old daddy wouldn't clear that narrow exit. i'm a twig and can get through most areas where most others can't (7-8 inches wide). i gotta drive him to the jeep dealer when his grand cherokee effs up (i'll never own a jeep, total crap!)

    One of our Customers is a BIG guy I will see if he lets me put up his pictures getting inside our smart. he is so big the steering wheel sits on his lap but he is able to get in and out.
    and by the way I am the guy on the video and I am 6'2" 240lbs and as you can see I can get in and out with no problem.

    Is there a plan to 'motorize' or further automate the door opening and closing? I understand that the kits run $1500.00 and basically are a full on bolt on replacement of the hinges. Most I've seen in the custom truck world come with warranty and wiring harness extensions. Can you verify those points? The stock hinge swings the door open very wide, almost too wide. This door, although very trick looking seems to shorten the swing a little too much. Are the designers looking maybe at a modified version of this to allow the door to open out a bit more?

    Thank you for your time @Tony .
    1. Plans to motorize..No we have found that it takes too long for the door to open and close with the actuators, also actuators don't have sensors that would tell it that the roof of your garage is too low or your arm is in the way.
    2. It comes with full warranty and our kits do not require wire harness, all the wires are your factory wires, all your power window, power locks and all electronics will work just like factory, you should not be able to tell you have a vertical lambo doors until you raised your doors up.
    3. It does shorten the swing but I am (the guy on the video) 6'2" 240lbs and I can get in and out without any problems.
    4. We are not thinking about redesigning the hinge for now, we feel we have a great product. If we find any problems with the design we will make the changes immediately but I am sure all our costumers will be happy with our product.
