|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?|

|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|

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.|

|DIY07||I am going to have to make a set of these next weekend.|

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.|

|Griffmeister||Great, now I have to go steal some kids pegs off his Mongoose.|

|TXJK2009||That trooper must not have anything better to do. It's not reckless than a motorcycle.|
|09-15-2012 02:18 PM|
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.

|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.|

|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.|

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!|

|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|

|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!|
