Any DIY Dead Pedal instructions?

Coming from a manual shift vehicle I really want a place to put my left foot in my Auto JK. I hate to spend $50+ on the bolt on dead pedal from QT. I did a search but couldn't find anyone who had a cheap mod for a DIY bolt on dead pedal. Seems as though there should be some inexpensive adaption that someone has come up with.

If you drive a manual you're too cool to have your doors on so you can just hang your left foot out the door when you're not shifting.

You wouldn't mind spending $800 bucks for a bumper, but not $50 for a dead pedal ??

Man your left foots gonna hate you-

If you can build one like this/adjustable/solid/heavy duty enough for "STOMP" pressure-



Good luck

Love my MORE. I don't use it much with normal driving unless it's a long trip and I need to stretch but I find I use it off road to brace myself. It rocks.

I doubt I'd spend $800 on a bumper either. However I might saws-all my bumper ends off and use some black duct tape...

You wont spend $50 on a quality product but will spend maybe $20 on materials to bungle together something yourself?

My MORE dead pedal should actually be here today at some point by the big brown truck.

Unless your really good at metal fabrication your better off just buying the MORE one.

I have a manual and took of the trim on the side wall and now there is enough room for a 2x4 laying on it's face that makes for a fine foot rest.

It seems that spending the 50 bucks is probably the way to go.

Otherwise just remember to measure twice, and cut once!

Hold the door open/hold the hood open/hold the TG open/chock the tire/jackstand/emergency self-defense--etc

Sure saved some money there and you could paintit the same color as your jeep-
