90 YJ pedal Heights

Can someone please tell me what their pedal heights are? My clutch pedal seems awfully high at 7 inches from back of pedal to floor. My knee jams into the tilted steering wheel when I lower it into a comfortable position. My brake pedal is 4" and gas pedal is 2"

Both clutch and brake on my 1990 YJ are 6" from back of pedal to floor

Taller people have to learn to jerk their clutch knee to the left when the wheel is tilted and they are shifting, you know....its kinda like riding a bull, you gotta spur it outta the chute in order to get it to play...

But seriously...is the clutch pedal quiet when you release it? reason I am asking is that mine was way high like that once, and I found out that there is a little rubber bushing that it stops against when its all the way out. If you are missing this bushing, then the clutch pedal rattles, and it stops out further than the brake pedal.

Mine is at the same height (6" from the floor) as the brake pedal.

Nope..no noise or rattlin' going on. The pedal engages the clutch right away... not much play to speak of.

Pulled a tendon or ligament in my knee from riding this Bull... might have to get the hack saw and torch out and shorten the horns an inch or two.

Any ideas or parts out there to get me back in the 5 to 6 inch range??

Look up under the dash, and push the clutch pedal by hand to see where it hits its stop...i.e. all the way out.

There wont be any "play" in it, cause its a hydraulic clutch, if you get play in the pedal, its a sign that the clutch master cylinder is going bad.

The "L" bracket that the clutch stops against might be bent... or maybe the brake pedal is just too far down. You are saying 7" mine measured 6"..thats not that far off.

Might have to learn to ride with the wheel up if you are shifting? I actually fixed my knee whacking the steering wheel by putting a smaller grant wheel on it, then I don't have to tilt it down as far to be comfortable. Just a thought.

Here's a pict just to show what I am dealing with. The PO must have done something wrong here... or rigged it for a short person. Maybe the PO used a master cylinder from a different year Jeep????

The only way it could be rigged for a short person, is if they removed the clutch pedal stop and installed a longer rod on the pedal to master connection.

If you shove the clutch pedal in by hand a couple inches and just let go of it, you should be able to hear it hit the rubber stop...making a thump.
