Wow, this comment was uncalled for, party pooper. The pegs on the door hinges are no worse if you were riding a motorcycle. Also I bet you also don't wheel your jeep, because rolling you jeep could cause injury as well.

And for that matter, driving in general is a high risk activity, so why not enjoy the things in life that make you happy and don't criticize the things that make other people happy by what they are doing.

If it bothers you that much, follow the rule, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Damn, now I am all fired up...comments like this really p!ss me off.

Hey sell them with a razor knife too, a kit if you will, so the buyer can make the perfect tri-fecta, cut the sensors for the airbag, slice the seatbelts off, and can let his legs protrude from the jeep at the same time!!

He will look really cool!!! (of course looks are deceiving)

The best part is when the ambulance gets there, they can take everything from the knee down to the hospital in a zip-loc bag.

Of course none of us would ever get in an accident.

I like 'em. Very cool Scooby. I keep my left foot in the door jamb as much as possible, it's more comfortable considering me feet don't touch the floor boards and my knees kill me after a long day wheeling with them hanging.


Negative comments are fine by the way, some people should just learn a little tact.

Oh yeah Scooby, awesome job. If you get in the mood of selling some, send me a message. I think I would take a set.

pegs

I like them as well. I never had the thought for something like that, I always put my foot in the door jamb, or on the nerf bar.

i cant believe everyone is throwing a fit about these. the rare occasions where i take my jeep out on the highway, my foot is on the sill, mainly b/c my legs are too damn long and i don't have an adjustable seat. I've thought about making something like this but just never have. if you wanna be a safety patrol, then do it all the way. jeeps aren't the safest vehicles. go buy a minivan.

i say good job, i like them.

The enzyte guy seems a bit hostile. And for the record, I wasnt saying I did not like them. I think you did a good job scoob and they look great. But they would have no use for me since I never have my foot out.

Its funny how not many people realize those are used for when cruising around town and not while wheeling.

As for the left foot on the brakes.. uuuhhhh okay?... how do you drive stick shift then where you have 3 pedals? Right foot is only for gas and brake and left is for clutch but in auto that becomes useless unless you are racing or other "high" performance driving instead of just cruising in the city... If some 1 disagrees then they might need to go and talk to every driving school since thats what they teach us.

So you're that guy? I follow you to work and back home every day and I can never really tell when you're actually stopping or just nervously riding your brake.

i do that w/ my stick lol i usually have my foot on the side/sill since i dont have foot pegs.. Just keep your distance and when you have to shift, pull ur foot back in and shift.. when you get to about a good speed on a long straight.. take it out again
