    She will need some sort of step to get in unless she's a gymnast:D I've got about 8-9" and 40's so it's probably 4" taller than the setup your talking about but my friends wife is 5' 6" and cannot get into mine at all (not enough arm strength). Not just hard, but can't do it w/out assistance. My wife is 5' 10" and hates it. I have StirrUps to help those that have a hard time. Works out pretty good.

    I have some mall-cruiser step bars that were on mine when I bought it, and my wife can get into it with those. The first time they contact a rock they'll probably rip off, so I'll build some rock sliders with an integrated step at that point.

    If you're not going too extreme with your rig, a set of those could really help her.

    I admit too, if not for them I'd struggle to get into the truck with the racing buckets
