So I'm late to this one...

Lowes has rubber feet/bumpers etc in hardware section. In the specialty section with all the nuts and bolts. (The depot probably has the same, but their hardware section is always a mess)

Both stores also have some flat and angle stock that could probably be used for the anti-swivel extension. A piece of rebar can probably work well too. I'm going to take a stab at this in the next week or 2. I don't weld, but I work with plenty of people who do. But I want to attack this without welding cause most ppl don't weld or have access to those who do.

Pics will follow soon. Been tired of trying to hang my foot on the hinge.

Giantxtc Saw this thread and made them. It took longer to find a socket extension than it did to make these. I just need to paint them.

dieselgiant Lol you can use the peg as your new foot when you get it cut off hanging out of the vehicle.

0II1II0 Made these last night, drove around doorless all day! I got a couple compliments on them and folks were amazed at how good they looked and how simple they were to create. Thanks for the inspiration!

jmaler Hi, I had a fee questions about the "swivel stopper braces"

I made the swivel stoppers from two pieces of leftover metal.

They started about 8" long and 1.5" tall and the metal was pretty thick maybe 1/8" . Then I folded them in half with a vise for more strength and drilled holes. The big hole is 3/8" for the heavy bolt inside the peg.

The other end is a smaller hole around 1/8". I added a rubber padded bumper to that end with a small bolt to protect the paint. The bumpers were leftover rubber feet from an old dead blender.

Then we sprayed them with bed liner to match the rest of the pegs.

They work well. I noticed the jeep body sheet metal flexes in a little bit where the rubber bumper meet the panel when you push a foot on the peg. The metal flexes right back out. That body metal is more flexible than I expected.

Let me know more questions.

07-29-2012 10:56 PM
Mr TenBel0w im lovin the innovation! its awesome how such a small and simple piece could make such a difference...when my friends hop in n ride with me they naturally put their foot up on the peg and then it hits em, "where the hell did you get pegs for your jeep?!"

jmaler Hey all - I was inspired to make some pegs, too. Thanks to thrty6 for the inspiration!!!

I modified the design a little to add in a metal brace so they won't swivel into the jeep body when my kids put their feet on them.

The metal was some extra pieces I had laying around, I folded it in half and drilled holes.

Supplies - pegs from local wal mart. Cheap at $8, but I was surprised that they are NOT THREADED so I had to do the design differently.

2 - bmx bike pegs from wal mart (mine were unthreaded)
2 - 2" long 3/8" diameter threaded eye bolts
2 - 1" outer 3/8" inner washers
2 - 3/8" nuts
2 - 3/8" wing nuts (to attach them to the hinges from the top)
4 - 3/4" outer 3/8" inner washers (on eye bolt, above and below hinges)
2 - metal 'braces' i made from scrap, about 4" long each
2 - recyled rubber feet from an old blender (protect the paint)
2 - 2 1/4" hex bolts for inside the pegs
black bed liner




I added a metal brace to the design so they don't swivel away. I added these leftover rubber 'feet' from an old blender to the braces to protect the paint.

I gave all the pieces a couple of coats of bed liner before assembly:

Parts after bed liner:

Since my pegs were not threaded, I had to bolt them from the inside. Here you see the 1 1/4" hex bolt sticking out from inside the pegs. Next goes on the threaded eye bolt:

mrbat23 I did mine with a yellow accent, but I have to change the hex bolt to a flat bolt, cuz it rubs a little bit on the body.
07-29-2012 08:47 PM
Dextreme Got mine made, but I welded it then hit it with some black BBQ paint while it was still hot from welding.

07-28-2012 09:32 PM
1jeeplvr Wow cool idea.
07-27-2012 10:07 PM
whsoccerjc21 Just thought I'd give an update, after bed lining the pegs, they look 100% better, really do look like they are made for the jeep.
07-27-2012 12:11 AM
Mr TenBel0w just took a half hour highway ride to see dark knight rises in imax (amazing movie, one of the best ive ever seen in theaters, just sayin..) and i test rode the pegs. a small mod, but really increases the comfort of the ride! its like kickin your feet up, gives more to the open air experience...nice
