That was one of my first mods when I got the Jeep. All of my previous cars had built-in dead pedals, so it was weird having my foot dangle around. I couldn't imagine driving my Jeep without it now.

ran into that too. avaliable from alot of other places. 4wd hardware/summit racing/m.o.r.e directly/ or i am sure some of the forum vendors have it?

if they do and this seems like a must have item, has WF ever done a group buy on a item?

FYI: MRE-DP0709DS IS THE PART NUMBER FOR THE NEWER ADJUSTABLE ONE.

Just installed my MORE dead pedal yesterday. WOW, what a huge difference it makes for my left foot. I didn't find myself moving my left foot around trying to find a "good spot".

Install was very easy and only took a few minutes.

note to new installers. i found out its best to start out at the middle holes. then do your adjustment front or back from there. i have mine closest to the front. perfect for me there.

Ordered mine a week ago, hoping to have it by now, but they're back ordered. Too many of you put this in your shopping cart before me. Argh! When I get it I'll let you know how I like it. Meanwhile enjoy yours!

Installed mine last week and I have to tell you, the difference is awesome. Everyone who has a Wrangler has to get one of these. The benefits outweigh the costs
