spinlock Now that I see this old thread again ... has anybody figured out how install a set of ape hangers to go with the foot pegs?
07-17-2014 07:17 PM
DIY07 As far as them turning. I used an interference lock nut on bottom that has a small taper on it this pulls into the bushing a bit and help to keep it in place. Keep in mind this is a foot rest and not a step. If you put enough pressure on it with your foot you could bend the hing. Allowing the peg to move under pressure could act as a safety.

DIY07 I got the ones I used at Walmart.

kjg26 Where did the foot pegs come from. All ones I've found aren't that cheap

Mad Mac What prevents the foot pegs from turning when you step on them?

Aargh! Now I see the reply about torque. Doesn't seem like that would be enough, but okay.

DIY07 Mission accomplished. I love them.
05-25-2013 01:41 PM
DIY07 I am going to have to make a set of these next weekend.

BlueRidgeYJ Hello dead thread, lol.

I keep em in place with torque. They don't crush the nylon sleeve and stay off the metal. If I were to hit something, my foot would push it forward and slip off, or if it hit something it would fold back, but it stays put otherwise. It is important to have a flat washer at the top and bottom of the hinge to make it work best.

WhiskeyMike Does this stay in that position from the torquing down on the hinge? Has anyone added anything to brace it?

slicxric Bringing this thread back from the dead. I had an idear(probablly not the first). How bout attaching another eye bolt at 90 degrees, wrapped in hose or something non abrasive to the pain, to rest against the hinge. Kinda like a "quick release". Although you stick shifters might need a little mod to keep it from swinging back into the door opening.

I purchased my pegs from a local bike shop. They had a whole bin of them from old used bikes and the like. The kid used to own a jeep so he sold me a pair for $5.

TXJK2009 I just took mine off of my son's bike. He's a sophmore now and never rides that bike.

TXJK2009 That trooper must not have anything better to do. It's not reckless than a motorcycle.
09-15-2012 02:18 PM
mgaffner Done. Thank for the information. I'm sure the trooper that pulled me over and said having my foot out of my jeep was reckless driving will love it.

billiam cant wait to get this project going! home depot here i come!
07-17-2012 08:09 AM
TXJK2009 Well, I only use it while highway driving. I drive a 6 speed. You can't safely drive with a foot out in the neighborhoods.

Sitting in that position is totally wrong for trying to react to any situation that calls for quick maneuvering or stopping. That is the advantage of the racing type belts that hold you where you CAN react.

Come on MAN ....Simmer down bud, the guy took something thats readily for sale in Quadratec and various other 4X4 Jeep catalogs and showed people how to save some hard earned cash $$$ with a FUN DIY project. He's not promoting anything unsafe...he's helping fellow jeepers out. This is the Jeepin spirit man! Hats off to the guy for an ingenious solution!
07-13-2012 12:42 PM
dukedallas Awesome! The only thing I might do different would be to wrap the eye bolts with electric tape or sheeth it with plastic tubing because of scoring the inside of your door hinges may cause premature rusting and screw up the door fit once the pegs for the door go back in.

TXJK2009
Awesome!

You just saved me $43! This was a great idea. My son took his pegs off years ago. I knew I held on to them for something.

(They'll look better once I paint the hardware black)
05-30-2012 09:09 PM
Iceweasle33 Good idea. I might have to make a set myself!
05-24-2012 06:05 PM
ThePeep Made mine yesterday night, rode around all day today with them on. The most comfortable way you could ever travel in a jeep: Doors off, top down, pegs on. Thanks for the instructions
05-23-2012 12:14 PM
Bluegrass Thanks for the thread.. I've had a pair of pegs that this guy gave me that I had been trying to figure out a way to mount without welding. Will post pics when they are finished!

Thank you for having common sense!
