DYI Jeep Foot Pegs

After reading another Thread about them I thought I would do my own. I do not weld or have access to a welder so theses are the non-weld version. Posting this was an after thought so I did not take pictures of the components, just the finished products on the jeep.

The parts needed are :
  1. Bicycle Foot Pegs (9.00)
  2. Two 3/8 X 1 1/2 bolt ( .97 )
  3. Two 3/8 X 2 EYE bolts ( 1.04 )
  4. Four over sized 3/8 Washers ( .97 )
  5. Four 3/8 Nuts ( 1.04 )

First) place one washer and one 3/8 bolt into the foot peg.
Second) place the 3/8 Eye bolt onto the bolt coming out of the foot peg.
Third) place a washer and nut onto the 3/8 bolt coming out of the foot peg
and tighten until it dimples the washer.
Fourth) use a bolt cutter/ grinder to cutoff the excess bolt sticking out of
the foot peg.
That process you leave you with this :

Now they are ready to be placed into the hinges and tightened down. Which should look something like this:

So for a little over $13 I would say not to bad. I plan on drilling them out to look like a flash suppressor and spraying them with bed liner. Hope you like.

I understand that it's more comfortable sometimes to prop your foot up like that.
BUT for safety's sake, PARTICULARLY on the trail, please, please...keep your arms and legs INSIDE the vehicle.

If your Jeep decides to take a nap and lays over on the side where your foot is, your immediate reaction will be to put your foot out to try to stop it...
you can imagine what the result could be.

A unique kickstand?

Good point though Kate, cruising may be one thing, but off camber trail riding is another.

Thanks for this write up.
I was asking for this exact thing on another thread. Specifically no welding.

Thanks again.

Hope you have GOOD insurance

When you try and get that foot back inside to stop in a critical situation and can't.

I guess out in the country where you can see 360 degrees for 1/2 mile MIGHT be ok. But any other situation you better have good insurance when you rear end, run over a kid, etc. because you couldn't get on the pedals.

Sitting in that position is totally wrong for trying to react to any situation that calls for quick maneuvering or stopping. That is the advantage of the racing type belts that hold you where you CAN react.

Huh? I use my RIGHT foot to operate the gas AND the break... my left foot is used for tapping to music and resting. NOW, if I had a clutch, I could still use my breaks in and emergency situation and I don't know about you, but moving my foot over to my clutch was natural when I had one... as far as using racing type belts ... That has nothing to do with this thread...

Made mine yesterday night, rode around all day today with them on. The most comfortable way you could ever travel in a jeep: Doors off, top down, pegs on. Thanks for the instructions

Awesome!

You just saved me $43! This was a great idea. My son took his pegs off years ago. I knew I held on to them for something.

(They'll look better once I paint the hardware black)

Awesome! The only thing I might do different would be to wrap the eye bolts with electric tape or sheeth it with plastic tubing because of scoring the inside of your door hinges may cause premature rusting and screw up the door fit once the pegs for the door go back in.

Come on MAN ....Simmer down bud, the guy took something thats readily for sale in Quadratec and various other 4X4 Jeep catalogs and showed people how to save some hard earned cash $$$ with a FUN DIY project. He's not promoting anything unsafe...he's helping fellow jeepers out. This is the Jeepin spirit man! Hats off to the guy for an ingenious solution!

Well, I only use it while highway driving. I drive a 6 speed. You can't safely drive with a foot out in the neighborhoods.

Done. Thank for the information. I'm sure the trooper that pulled me over and said having my foot out of my jeep was reckless driving will love it.

That trooper must not have anything better to do. It's not reckless than a motorcycle.
