Anybody elses feet to big for jeep?

So I had to take the wife to the doc today. First time Ive drove the wrangler with my work boots on. It was difficult I kept kicking everything as I was shifting and also hit the brake with the clutch once. I dont seem to have issues when I have my DC shoes on but my boots dont fit. Anyone else have this issue?

Nope. And I wear a size 13 boot.

Same here, usually Size 13-14 footwear, I don't have an issue driving with some combat boots. Of Course I do have an automatic, sounds like your problem is with the clutch.

I have a 13 JKU with a stick shift. My foot is a 16 4E (extra wide) and I have no problems. I wear work boots, dress shoes, tennis shoes, sandals...and have ok room with each.

I'm a size 12, and it depends on my boots. Most are fine I have but one pair I have are big/clumsy and make it a pita to drive stick with. Its the boots though, not my foot size :/

ya I have the same problem I am 6' 2" and I wear a size 13 . I was thinking of getting a tilt steering wheel and also replacing my driver seat and mounting bracket or modifying the bracket so it sits higher and gives me a little more leg room to move.

Hell, I only wear a 9.5, but with my work boots on I sometimes hit the gas while braking. 97 manual.

I have an 06 and it seems the gas and brake are a little close. But I have adjusted. It can be more of a problem if I am wearing boots vs tennis shoes.

6'5" and 14 shoe. Yes, this foot room is a minor issue even with my auto JK. Almost seems worse in my sneakers then my work steel toes. The MORE dead pedal helped a lot giving my left foot somewhere to go instead of being in the way all the time.

Only really happens to me when I'm wearing my old steel toed work boots (they're from the 70's with some kind of ungodly thick steel in the toe...i have to imagine at least 1/8"...I look like frankensteins monster from the ankles down with those on)
