Heavy Gas Pedal??

One of the weird things I noticed after getting the Jeep is what happened when I got in my Wife's RAV4. Waaay too much on the gas pedal, very significantly. It's because the pedal on the Jeep is heavier and I had gotten used to that. I have never had this problem switching cars before.

Anybody else notice a heavier pedal or is it just my Jeep?

My xj has a really deep gas pedal.. Meaning I have to step down further for just a bit gas to get going.

I have that problem with the clutch... My fords clutch is stiff as heck... Jump in the TJ and I can barely drive it!!!

But yes I've done that with cars and stuff. Just last week I had to drive a Hyundai and the gas pedal was nothing compared to the jeep...
